PODIATRIST PROVIDES SOME SHOE-BUYING ADVICE

PODIATRIST DR. JEFFREY N. BOWMAN FROM HUSTON, TEXAS STATES, "ILL-FITTING SHOES CAN CAUSE FEET PROBLEMS LIKE BUNIONS, CORNS, HAMMERTOES, AND CROSSOVER TOES.  IF A PAIR OF SHOES DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT IN THE STORE, DON'T BUY THE SHOES, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU LIKE THEIR STYLE.  THEY MAY NEVER BREAK IN, AND THEY CAN DAMAGE YOUR FEET.  FOR A NORMAL FOOT, ANYTHING THAT YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE IN  IS FINE AS LONG AS IT HAS A RIGID HEEL, SOME BUILT-IN SUPPORT AND CUSHIONING."

PODIATRIST BOWMAN ALSO STATES, "1 5-INCH SPIKE ISN'T GOING TO DO ANYONE ANY GOOD.  IT FORCES ALL THE WEIGHT TO THE FRONT OF THE FOOT AND WILL CAUSE PAIN.  HIGH HEELS PUT YOU ON THE FAST TRACK TO BUNIONS, CORNS, AND OTHER PROBLEMS."

UNFORTUNATELY MANY WOMEN LIVE BY THE ADAGE 'IT IS NOT HOW I FEEL BUT RATHER HOW I LOOK" WHICH IS WHY THE MAJORITY OF PODIATRISTS, CHIROPODISTS, FOOT DOCTORS AND FOOT SPECIALISTS PATIENTS ARE FEMALE.  HEELS ARE NEVER A GOOD IDEA AT ANY TIME  AS WELL YOU SHOULD ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT THE TOE BOX IS WIDE ENOUGH TO ACCOMMODATE TO THE NATURAL SHAPE OF THE FOOT WITH OUT COMPRESSING THE FOREFOOT WITHIN THE SHOE.
