SOURCES OF TROUBLE WHEN PURCHASING SHOES

 

EVERYBODY HAS HEARD THE SAYING, DON'T MAKE A FACE AS IT MAY STAY THAT WAY.  WELL THIS SAYING IS TRUE FOR YOUR FEET IF YOU WEAR SHOES THAT DO NOT FIT YOU PROPERLY.  FASHION DESIGNERS FREQUENTLY TRUMP STYLE AGAINST FUNCTION IN A BID TO CAPTURE AS MUCH OF THE MARKET POSSIBLE.  THE VALUE OF THE U.S. SHOE MARKET TOPS OUT OVER $68 BILLION PER YEAR.

IF YOU WEAR SHOES WITH A NARROW TOE BOX WHICH CONSTRICTS YOUR FEET AND CROUDS YOUR TOES YOU CAN END UP WITH BUNIONS AND HAMMER TOES.

STEER CLEAR OF SHOES WITH SOLES THAT CAN BE TWISTED OR FOLDED EASILY AND DON'T PROVIDE PROPER SUPPORT. TRY TO CHOOSE SHOES WITH WIDE HEELS TO DISTRIBUTE WEIGHT BETTER AND DECREASE THE RISK OF AN INVERSION SPRAIN.  MANY FLATS PROVIDE NO SUPPORT FOR YOUR ARCH AND WOMEN ARE ALSO ADVISED TO WEAR HEELS THAT ARE NO HIGHER THAN 2 INCHES OR NOT TO WEAR THEM AT ALL.

ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, 25% OF PEOPLE WHO WORE FLATS, BOOTS AND FLIP-FLOPS EXPERIENCED FOOT PAIN.  ALSO IT IS WOMEN WHO EXPERIENCE THE MAJORITY OF FOOT PROBLEMS DUE TO THE POOR DESIGN OF SO-CALLED STYLISH FOOTWEAR.
