Your feet are killing you. You’ve been shopping all day and you have sit down on a bench, take your shoes off and rub your feet before you can go on. And…. You had better get those shoes back on in a hurry - before your feet swell up and you can’t get them back on at all.
  • Avoid shoe with pointed toes or high heels. They can lead to such foot problems as ingrown nails, calluses, corns or bunions. High heels force the wearer to lean back to compensate for the forward tilt of the heel, creating spinal problems as well.
  • Select laced shoes. They offer more room and adjustable support.
  • Wear shoe made of soft leather.
  • Shop for shoes in the early afternoon. Feet swell as the day goes on. Shoes bought early in the morning may be too tight and the shoes bought at the end of the day may be too loose.
  • Have your feet measured. Shoe size can change as you age and /or put on weight. Arches tend to relax with age and may require larger, wider shoes.
  • If shoes run anywhere, have them stretched at a cobbler shop.
