Buy Good Shoes

image of person putting on a shoe.

Most people spend close to two-thirds of their life in shoes, so wearing shoes that fit well is very important. Our feet endure tremendous pressures daily. For example, an average day of walking brings a force equal to several hundred tons on your feet. Feet are subject to more injury than any other part of the body, underscoring the need to protect them with proper shoes. Here is a quick guide to selecting the right shoes for your feet.

• Always have your feet measured while standing

• Always try on both shoes, and walk around the store in them

• Always buy for the larger foot; feet are seldom precisely the same size

• Don't buy shoes that need a 'break-in' period; shoes should be comfortable immediately

• Don't rely on the size of your last pair of shoes as your feet may grow

• Shop for shoes later in the day, as feet tend to swell during the day

• Select a shoe with a leather upper, stiff heel counter, good cushioning, and flexibility at the ball of the foot

• Try on shoes while you're wearing the same type of socks or stockings you expect to wear with the shoes

• If you wear prescription orthotics, you should take them along to shoe fittings

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was amazed to find that the cause of my dizziness was caused by such a small and overlooked part of my spine. I had visited numerous doctors in the past with all of the test results coming back saying I was suffering from anxiety attacks. There was a feeling inside of me which was telling me that this was not really the cause. It must have been divine intervention which brought me to your web page and the solution to my problem. I would like to thank you for all you have done for me. It's amazing to think such a small and painless adjustment could help me feel better. While I know this is an ongoing process, I felt it important to let you know how much you have really helped. I look forward to the continued improvement in my health."
