How to Choose Right Shoes

Slide2 l.jpg

Most footwear on the market today is neither comfortable nor good for the feet. The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) recently reported that 50 percent of Americans, aged 18-60, suffer from some kind of foot ailment, and that many of these are related to wearing incorrect shoes.

You don't have to suffer pain for fashion. Comfortable shoes manufacturers are now hiring stylists and keeping pace with fashion trends while still offering the features that make a shoe comfortable.

Try these tips for picking comfortable shoes, pumps, flats, and sandals.

  • 1. When selecting a Career or Dress shoe, look for:

  • A low (2 inch or less), broad based heel - the higher the heel, the greater the pressure on the front of the foot. Comfortable shoes typically have lower heels.

  • A good, firm heel counter (this helps lock the foot into the shoe and anchors it to the mid-sole, giving extra support);

  • Sole and heel materials that provide cushioning and shock absorption.

  • A broader and deeper toe shape - In the most comfortable shoes the toe box will allow a lot of room, preventing pinching or constriction of the toes.

    2. Test a shoe for cushioning by pressing a finger into the ball area. It should have a little give or a slightly padded feel. Comfortable shoes typically have a cushioned footbed that supports the natural shape of the feet.

3. Avoid synthetics: Wear only shoes that have natural leather or suede insoles because it is breathable and pliable, it will prevent chafing and blistering while molding to the feet.

4. Avoid slippage and cuts: On your heel by finding a shoe with a back that fits snugly and holds your foot securely.

5. Visit a store that knows and cares about fitting-and has a wide selection of comfortable shoe brands for you to choose from.
