Foot pain is the worst. While there’s a multitude of things that can cause it, some simple troubleshooting could help you heal and avoid it altogether. It’s probably not surprising that footwear plays a big part in injury prevention and overall comfort, but what should you be looking for when it comes to keeping your feet feeling good?
Measure Your Feet At The End Of The Day
Measuring your feet will give you pretty specific dimensions when it comes to the right size for you, but you might not know that measuring at the end of the day can also help you get the perfect fit. Why? Throughout the day your feet swell and change size. Knowing your size when your feet are at their max means you're less likely to feel squished in your shoes.
Check Your Space At The End Of Your Toes
This might bring you back to your childhood, and your mom checking every new pair of shoes you wanted. Well, it still works, and giving the end of your shoes a push at the toes is still a great way to ensure you have (literal) wiggle room. Ideally, you’ll have space that’s about the width of your thumb between the end of your shoes and your toes.
Take ‘Em For A Test Drive
You can get a pretty good feel for the comfort of your shoes by doing a quick walk in them indoors. If you feel any sort of rubbing or discomfort, those are pretty good signs that you’ve grabbed the wrong size.
