Purchasing Shoes Online

Shopping for shoes online has become increasingly popular despite the inability to try the desired shoes on before purchasing them. For people who prefer this method of buying shoes, it is beneficial that their feet are measured. Determining your correct shoe size can easily be accomplished. This can be done by standing on a piece of paper and tracing the foot. It is important to measure both length and width, and it may be easier to have a family member or friend do this. This is followed by using a conversion chart to find the right size. The height of the arch can be seen when the foot is dipped in water, followed by stepping on a piece of cardboard. A full footprint may indicate low arches. Conversely, if half the footprint is visible, this can be a sign of having high arches. If you would like to learn more about how to measure your foot for the correct shoe size, it is suggested that you confer with a podiatrist who can answer any questions you may have.

Getting the right shoe size is an important part of proper foot health. Seek the assistance of Dr. Joshua David Scoll from Pennsylvania. Our doctor will provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Getting the Right Shoe Size

There are many people who wear shoes that are the incorrect size, negatively affecting their feet and posture. Selecting the right shoes is not a difficult process, so long as you keep several things in mind when it comes to choosing the right pair.

  • When visiting the shoe store, use the tools available to measure your foot.
  • Be sure there is ‘wiggle room’. There should be about an inch between your toes and the tip of your shoes.
  • Do not always assume you are the same size, as manufacturers run differently.
  • Purchase shoes later in the day, as your feet swell as the day progresses.
  • If a shoe is not comfortable, it is not suitable. Most shoes can’t be ‘broken in’, and comfort should be the ultimate goal when it comes to choosing the right pair of shoes

As our feet hold our body weight and keep us moving, it is important to treat them right. Picking the right pair of shoes can provide your feet comfort and mobility without pain.
