      Secrets of picking a comfortable shoe

      All of us have had bad experiences with footwear at least once in lifetime. Either the shoe would fit too loose or too tight or pinch at some place. Here are some tips from the experts to help you choose the best kind of shoes.

      Shop during closing time

      Your feet swell towards the close of the day, and therefore your feet are at their biggest at this time. This will help you get shoes that fit you comfortably at all times.

      Don’t just go by sizes

      The size on the box may not necessarily be what you need for a great fit. Stand up and request the width and length of your feet being measured in that position. Your feet will be flat and spread out and this helps.

      Choose low-heeled shoes

      You have always heard about the perils of wearing high heels. When you wear them, the pressure in the front of the foot increases drastically and body weight is distributed unevenly. This can result in painful bunions and hammertoe. Choose shoes with a heel height of 1 inch (2.4 cm) or less and your feet will thank you.  

      Flip-flops and flats can backfire

      Flip-flops and flats may look like the most comfortable footwear on earth but the fact is that they have very little cushioning or support for the heels or arches. This can change the way you walk and make your leg pain. 

      Go for a soft sole

      A soft sole is kinder to your feet. It also tends to absorb shocks better and feel more comfortable. Unlike stiffer shoes, this will not rub your blisters.

      Skip shoes that don’t fit

      Sometimes, one is tempted by designs or prices to buy ill-fitting footwear. You may try to convince yourself that the shoes will be okay, but ill-fitting footwear will never work. Don’t try this.

      Dump strappy shoes and wedges

      Straps and wrapped material of strappy or wrap-around sandals have the capacity to irritate spaces between your toes besides rubbing calluses and blisters on the back of your heels. When it comes to wedges, they can be unstable and result in ankle twists and sprains.
