How Do I Find the Right Size Shoe?

Monday, 09 November 2020 00:00

When you shop for new shoes, it can be difficult to find the right size. Manufacturers often don’t follow a standard sizing system for their shoes, so your shoe size might differ between brands or even between different styles of shoes within the same brand! To find the right shoe, use the size as a guideline rather than a strict rule. What you might really want to pay attention to are the width of the shoe, the materials that the shoes are made of, how you are planning to use the shoes, and any foot health issues that you may have. Shopping for shoes in person may be more effective than shopping online, as a salesperson will be able to assist you when you are in the store. For more information about how to find the right shoes for you, it is recommended that you consult with a podiatrist. 

Getting the right shoe size is an important part of proper foot health. Seek the assistance of Frank Henry, DPM from Victoria and Marble Falls, TX. 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.
