YOUR FOOT IS AN INCREDIBLE LIVING, STRONG MECHANICAL MACHINE MADE UP OF MORE THAN 26 BONES, 33 JOINTS AND MORE THAN 100 MUSCLES, LIGAMENTS AND TENDONS.  THE 52 BONES IN YOUR FEET COMPRISE MORE THAN 25% OF ALL OF THE BONES IN YOUR BODY. WHEN YOUR FOOT IS OUT OF ALIGNMENT, YOUR WHOLE BODY IS AS THEY ARE THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR POSTURE.  THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY 250,000 SWEAT GLANDS IN A PAIR OF FEET, AND THEY EXCRETE AS MUCH AS HALF A PINT OF MOISTURE EACH DAY.  THE SOLES OF YOUR FEET CONTAIN MORE SWEAT GLANDS AND SENSORY NERVE ENDINGS PER SQUARE CENTIMETER THAN ANY OTHER PART OF YOUR BODY.

THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION SAYS BUYING SHOES IS BEST DONE IN THE AFTERNOON.  YOUR FEET TEND TO SWELL DURING THE DAY, AND ITS BEST TO BUY SHOES THAT FIT THEN.  WOMEN ARE 4 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO HAVE FOOT PROBLEMS THEN MEN ARE, MOSTLY DUE TO IMPROPER FOOTWEAR.  A 2 1/2-INCH HEEL CAN INCREASE THE LOAD ON THE FOREFOOT BY 75%. MANY PEOPLE HAVE ONE FOOT LARGER THAN THE OTHER SO IT IS BEST TO FIT THE LARGER ONE WHILE STANDING.  GETTING THE PROPER SIZE SHOE IS ESSENTIAL FOR COMFORT AND TO PREVENT INJURIES.  NEVER RELY ON BUYING THE SAME SIZE SHOE AS ALL MANUFACTURERS USE DIFFERENT METHODS TO SIZE THEIR PRODUCT.  EACH SHOE MUST BE CAREFULLY FITTED.  SPEND THE TIME TO GET IT RIGHT OR PAY THE PRICE IN PAIN, DISCOMFORT, INJURY OR HAVING A PAIR OF SHOES YOU WASTED YOUR MONEY ON BECAUSE YOU CAN'T WEAR THEM.  EVERYONES FOOT IS DIFFERENT AND WILL NOT FIT INTO ALL SHOES. GET THE ONE THATS RIGHT FOR YOU!
