Top Ten Foot Care Tips Over 10 Days. Day 6

6. Wear Well-Fitting Shoes

Whether you are on your feet most of the time or sit at a desk at work, you should always wear comfortable and well-fitting shoes. They will help you to work without discomfort and will not restrict the movement of your feet in any way.

Poorly fitting shoes, including shoes that are too small, can cause a pain while walking and even lead to blisters and corns. Shoes that are too big increase your risk of falling.

To choose the right pair of shoes:

When buying a new pair of shoes, try on both shoes and walk a few steps to see whether they are comfortable.

Choose materials that allow your feet to breathe and mold well to the shape of your foot.

When shopping for a new pair of shoes, go in the late afternoon or evening. After a long day, feet tend to swell a little and your shoes need to accommodate this natural occurrence.

Wear different types of shoes for different purposes, such as running shoes for a morning walk, high heels for parties and flats for daytime use.

If you are prone to sweaty feet, look for shoes made of mesh fabrics for maximum breathability.

Avoid shoes that can make your feet hot in the summer to prevent foot odor or a fungal infection.

While trying on shoes, always wear socks or hosiery of the same thickness that you will be wearing with the shoes when you get them home.

Wear high heels and pointed shoes for special occasions only, and avoid wearing them for long durations.

Resist wearing flip-flops all the time, as they don’t provide support for your feet and can cause arch and heel pain.
