The potential for foot and ankle injuries can be reduced by wearing properly fitting shoes for the natural shape of your feet. Feet should not be forced to conform to the shape of shoes. Ill fitting shoes can contribute to the development of corns, callous, bunions, hammertoes and other crippling foot problems. Shoes that do not fit properly may contribute to pain in your knees, back, ankles or hips.
Tips for buying Footwear
Have both feet measured every time you purchase shoes. Your foot may change shape and size as you get older.
Try on new shoes towards the end of the day, as feet will often swell and become larger after a day of standing or sitting.
Make sure you try on both shoes.
There should be an adult thumb space from the end of your longest toe to the end of the shoe.
