Why It’s Important to Measure Both Feet

When shopping for footwear, have your feet measured. January 23rd is National Measure Your Feet Day. Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, provides helpful information regarding the importance of measuring your feet when shopping for new shoes. 

Finding proper fitting footwear prevents foot problems and reduces injuries. 

4 Factors in Properly Fitted Footwear

Wearing shoes that fit can help you avoid foot injuries. Here are four factors to consider when shopping for footwear:

  1. Make sure the ball of your foot feels comfortable at the widest part of the shoe.
  2. Be sure the shoes fit correctly right when you put them on.
  3. Walk on a carpeted surface to make sure the shoes are comfortable during regular activities.
  4. Shoes should support the overall structure of your foot. 

Even though shoes may look stylish, those that don’t fit properly can create problems or worsen existing ones. Do yourself and your foot health a favor today by investing in some well-fitted shoes.
