Finding Shoes That Fit Well

Choosing shoes that fit correctly is a nuanced process that directly impacts comfort and foot health. Start by knowing your foot size, which can change over time and may differ between brands. It is beneficial to prioritize comfort over style, as shoes that feel good are more likely to provide adequate support. Ensure there is enough room for your toes to move and avoid tightness in the toe box, which can lead to discomfort and deformities over time. The arch support should match the natural curve of your foot. It's important to pay attention to the width, as shoes that are too narrow or too wide can cause friction and pressure points. Walk around in the shoes before purchasing to assess overall comfort and ensure a snug fit. Different shoe types may require slight adjustments in sizing. If you would like more information about how to find shoes that fit right for your feet, it is suggested that you confer with a podiatrist.

Getting the right shoe size is an important part of proper foot health. Seek the assistance of one of our podiatrists from Bangor Podiatry. Our doctors will provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Getting the Right Shoe Size

There are many people who wear shoes that are the incorrect size, negatively affecting their feet and posture. Selecting the right shoes is not a difficult process, so long as you keep several things in mind when it comes to choosing the right pair.

  • When visiting the shoe store, use the tools available to measure your foot.
  • Be sure there is ‘wiggle room’. There should be about an inch between your toes and the tip of your shoes.
  • Do not always assume you are the same size, as manufacturers run differently.
  • Purchase shoes later in the day, as your feet swell as the day progresses.
  • If a shoe is not comfortable, it is not suitable. Most shoes can’t be ‘broken in’, and comfort should be the ultimate goal when it comes to choosing the right pair of shoes

As our feet hold our body weight and keep us moving, it is important to treat them right. Picking the right pair of shoes can provide your feet comfort and mobility without pain.
