Advice

Getting your footwear right is key to the good health of your feet. Here are just a few handy tips to help reduce the chance of developing foot problems:

  • Buy footwear in the afternoon as most feet swell later in the day
  • Be sure your selected shoes are comfortable
  • The space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe be between 5 and 10mm (the size of a finger nail)
  • Make sure the width of the widest part of your foot is slightly less than the widest part of the shoe
  • Make sure both shoes are comfortable as sometimes feet can vary in size
  • Your heel should fit snugly into the back of the shoe

A good shoe should have the following characteristics:

  • A reasonably stiff heel counter
  • A fastening system that allows the shoe to fit the foot comfortably such as laces or Velcro
  • A shoe that allows the wearer to toe off i.e. bend at the ball of the foot
  • A shoe that is not able to be easily twisted or wrung
