The need for better-fitting shoes comes with the news that our feet, like the rest of us, are getting bigger. The average shoe size is up about two sizes since the 1970s, according to a study released last month from the College of Podiatry, a UK professional group.
Emma Supple, a consulting podiatrist for the College of Podiatry, says she believes the findings apply outside Britain as well. “We’ve all gotten taller, and we need big feet to hold us up,” she says.
