Top Tips To Boost Your Foot Health





Do you want to make the right investment to your foot health? Here are some thought provoking tips from Harvard Scientists.
The trick to buying comfortable shoes is to buy the ones that closely match the outline of your own feet. These are some great tips from a special report from Harvard Medical School:  Healthy Feet:Preventing and treating common foot problems

Poorly fitting shoes may also be one of the the reasons for calluses and corns which cause a great deal of discomfort while you walk. So heed to these great words of wisdom.

1.    Wait until the afternoon to shop for shoes — your feet naturally expand with use during the day and may swell in hot weather.
2.    Wear the same type of socks that you intend to wear with the shoes.
3.    Have the salesperson measure both of your feet — and get measured every time you buy new shoes. If one foot is larger or wider than the other, buy a size that fits the larger foot.
4.    Stand in the shoes. Make sure you have at least a quarter- to a half-inch of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe.
5.    Walk around in the shoes to determine how they feel. Is there enough room at the balls of the feet? Do the heels fit snugly, or do they pinch or slip off? Don't rationalize that the shoes just need to be "broken in" or that they'll stretch with time. Find shoes that fit from the start.
6.    Trust your own comfort level rather than a shoe's size or description. Sizes vary from one manufacturer to another. And no matter how comfortable an advertisement claims those shoes are, you're the real judge.
7.    Feel the inside of the shoes to see if they have any tags, seams, or other material that might irritate your feet or cause blisters.
8.    Turn the shoes over and examine the soles. Are they sturdy enough to provide protection from sharp objects? Do they provide any cushioning? Also, take the sole test as you walk around the shoe store: do the soles cushion against impact? Try to walk on hard surfaces as well as carpet to see how the shoes feel.

Hope you would follow these awesome ideas while buying your next pair of shoes.

Take care,
