Shopping For Shoes That Fit

Shopping for shoes can often be a tricky thing to do.  Finding the right place to buy them is one of the first things to consider.  Getting the shoes online would be convenient, but being able to try the shoes on is a must if you want to ensure that they fit properly.  Make sure to measure your foot.  Depending on where you are, you can usually find a sales associate to help you with this.  Your shoe size can vary for a number of reasons.  As the day wears on our feet typically swell a bit.  And, as we age, our feet may expand.  Also, a shoe size that one brand sells may be different from the exact same size offered by another. Once you have the shoes on, walk around the store a little bit.  If they aren’t comfortable, it would be better to just find another pair.  If you’re wondering why your feet hurt, it could be that you’re wearing the wrong size shoes.

Getting the right shoe size is an important part of proper foot health. Seek the assistance of one of our podiatrists from Desert Foot and Ankle, PC.. Our doctors will provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.
