We’ve all done this – walking past a shop, our eyes spot a beautiful pair of shoes that we absolutely must have, and we go in and buy this glamorous pair of shoes. The problem is, though, that after several days of wearing them, we have blisters and our feet hurt back to front.
In this article we are going to look at how to distinguish comfortable shoes, so we don’t have those issues in the future.
- When you consider purchasing pump shoes with high heels, always make sure that the heel is directly in the center of your heel. In case it is at the back or too far forward, you will have difficulties balancing.
- A wedge shoe helps distributing your weight more evenly, thus supporting the foot all the way. Keep in mind, however that less sole flexibility of a wedge can have you rolling your ankle over the side.
- Upon choosing a shoe, always try to avoid synthetics. If you buy shoes with leather, suede or fabric uppers, it is a lot better, because these materials breathe, which lowers the chance of getting blisters.
- Pressing the ball area with a finger is how you test a shoe’s cushioning. When you do that, it should give a little or have a slightly padded feel.
- When buying flat shoes, try and twist them. If they bend too much, this means that it would not support your weight.
- If you are someone with a high arch, buy flats with a small heel, because they provide relief from foot pain.
- Always aim to buy shoes with leather or rubber soles, because they help with shock absorption the best.
- Another thing to keep in mind is that the back of the shoe shoed fit perfectly and hold your foot securely.
- Round-toe flats follow the shape of the foot, which helps with the movement of the toes, avoiding sore feet.
- Wobbly sandals usually mean that they will not support your feet well enough when you purchase them. Put the shoe on a table and if it’s balanced and stable when standing on it’s own, then go for it.
- Sandals with heels should have a broad base, that will help with balance and allow for better shock absorption.
- In order to prevent chafing, make sure you choose sandals, that have a suede or leather-lined straps.
- The broadest part of your foot should fit perfectly in the toe-box area of the sandal.
- When buying sandals with straps, look at the insides of those straps, to see if there are going to be details that can hurt your feet.
Having comfortable shoes is an absolute must in today’s busy environment. No one wants to sit in the subway or walk around all day in the office with a pain in your feet. Hopefully, this article will help you make the right choices when it comes to buying shoes.
