  • TORONTO FOOT CLINIC SHARES SOME INFORMATION REGARDING BUYING AND WEARING SHOES

TORONTO FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING CHIROPODISTS AND FOOT DOCTORS RECOMMEND THAT WHEN YOU PURCHASE SHOES, SIZE, FIT AND MATERIALS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS.  SHOE SIZES ARE NOT STATIC AND CAN VARY BETWEEN DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS AND STYLES.  ALSO YOU SHOULD BUY YOUR SHOES IN THE AFTERNOON AS YOUR FEET SLOWLY SWELL DURING THE DAY AND BECOME LARGER.  ALWAYS MEASURE YOUR FEET IN THE STANDING POSITION.  ALWAYS MEASURE BOTH FEET AS ONE FOOT IS USUALLY SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN THE OTHER.

REFRAIN FROM SELECTING STYLE OVER APPROPRIATENESS OF FUNCTION.  MAKE SURE THE SHOE FITS THE PARTICULAR ACTITY THAT YOU WILL BE WEARING IT FOR.  PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST 3 PAIR OF SHOES FOR WORK THAT ARE COMFORTABLE AND THEY SHOULD BE SWITCHED DAILY SO THEY CAN BE FULLY DRIED OUT TO HELP PREVENT FUNGAL INFECTIONS TO BOTH THE SKIN AND NAILS.

WORKERS IN HEAVY INDUSTRY SHOULD ALWAYS WEAR SHOES WITH TOE PROTECTION.

FOR CHILDREN, FIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT AND THEIR FEET SHOULD BE MEASURED ON A REGULAR BASIS.  THE FOLLOWING IS A GUIDE TO HOW OFTEN THEIR FEET SHOULD BE MEASURED;

UP TO 6 YEARS, EVERY 23 MONTHS

6-10 YEARS, EVERY 3-4 MONTHS

10-12 YEARS, EVERY 4 MONTHS

12-15 YEARS, EVERY 5 MONTHS

16 YEARS+, EVERY 6 MONTHS

THE SHOES SHOULD BE STRAIGHT-LACED AND HAVE A FIRM AND RIGID HEEL COUNTER AND FLEX AT THE TOE.  MAKE SURE THERE IS ENOUGH ROOM FOR THE CHILD TO WIGGLE HIS OR HER TOES AND THE HEEL IS NOT SLIPPING OUT OF THE SHOE AND THERE IS AT LEAST 1/2 INCH FROM THE END OF THE CHILDS TOE TO THE END OF THE SHOE.
