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

Testimonial

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "There is only one option I know of to stop getting older and I'm not ready for that. But there are options to stop or slow down the aging process and I have a really good one. Dr. Parrish Skrien's chiropractic care is an anti-aging remedy. Since I started going to Dr Skrien, several years ago, I have learned to recognize many health related problems and symptoms can be connected to stress or pressure on the central nervous system which which runs from your brain stem down through your spine and out into every body function or system. A monthly adjustment is part of my regular health care routine and it makes a difference. Thank you Dr. Skrien for your commitment to overall good health."
