Run With the Right Shoes

Monday, 17 August 2020 00:00

Running is a great exercise for your overall health, but to ensure that you are getting the maximum benefits, make sure that you are wearing the right shoes! Wearing ill-fitting or unsupportive running shoes can increase your risk of injury, so it is important to choose high-quality shoes that fit correctly. Running shoes should be slightly larger in size than your average, everyday footwear. This is because when you run, your feet repeatedly hit the ground and your toes move forward in the shoes. If your toes lack the room to move, you may find yourself with an injury. Your shoe size can change over the course of your lifetime, so it is important to make no assumptions regarding your current running shoe size. Measure your foot or have a proper shoe fitting performed at a shoe store in order to help you find the right size. For more tips on finding the correct running shoes for you, consult with a podiatrist.

Getting the right shoe size is an important part of proper foot health. Seek the assistance of one of our podiatrists from Port Richmond Family Footcare. Our doctors will provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Getting the Right Shoe Size

There are many people who wear shoes that are the incorrect size, negatively affecting their feet and posture. Selecting the right shoes is not a difficult process, so long as you keep several things in mind when it comes to choosing the right pair.

  • When visiting the shoe store, use the tools available to measure your foot.
  • Be sure there is ‘wiggle room’. There should be about an inch between your toes and the tip of your shoes.
  • Do not always assume you are the same size, as manufacturers run differently.
  • Purchase shoes later in the day, as your feet swell as the day progresses.
  • If a shoe is not comfortable, it is not suitable. Most shoes can’t be ‘broken in’, and comfort should be the ultimate goal when it comes to choosing the right pair of shoes

As our feet hold our body weight and keep us moving, it is important to treat them right. Picking the right pair of shoes can provide your feet comfort and mobility without pain.
