Small Running Shoes can Cause Stress Fractures

If you are an active person, you know that when you are running your feet get very hot!  This is an important factor when choosing your running shoes!  When your feet get hot, they also swell.  If your feet do not have the support to move properly, you may be setting yourself up for some health issues like stress fractures.  Stress fractures are small breaks that occur in your toe bones and in the bones on the ball of your foot.  They are very painful and can even change your stride if not treated.[1]

When purchasing running shoes, you might have to buy a size larger to accommodate and support your feet.  When in doubt, always ask questions at the shoe store!
