How In The World Do I Choose The Right Shoes

Aug 17, 2007
In the world we live in today we are overwhelmed by choices. If we go to a drive through hamburger place we have about 20 choices to make and that's just for the sandwich! Then you have to decide on fries or onion rings, what kind of drink, and do you want to biggie size or super size that? With the way our society has become accustomed to having so many choices in everything it is no surprise that shoes are the same way.

For those of you who believe shoes are shoes, I am sorry to tell you, you are mistaken. The comfort and support that the shoe offers is of vital importance to the health of your feet now and in the future. As a matter of fact, wearing improper shoes can cause way more problems then just sore toes. Wearing a shoe that does not support or that is the wrong size can cause back pain and even spinal injury. How is that for a wake up call? The discomfort that you suffer in your foot due to improperly fitting shoes is minimal compared to the serious back pain it can lead to.

Having a shoe that fits properly doesn't mean that you have to go with a shoe that is ugly. As I was indicating earlier here are many choices for you in department stores, malls, shoe shops, and online where you have access to thousands of shoes right from your own home. If you are buying online, be sure that they have a liberal return policy because trying on the shoe is important. Making sure the toes are not too tight but that the back fits properly are important parts. Is there support for the arch? If you need to use the shoe for specific reasons, you will need a specific shoe. For example, well made, sturdy hiking boots are necessary when hiking. Their high tops will help to support your ankles on difficult ground as well as protect against brush and thorns. If you work on your feet in a restaurant, you may want to choose a shoe that is comfortable and slip resistant.

Take the time to find the right shoe so that not only will your feet be more comfortable, but it will keep you safe and secure. You can look stylish and be safe at the same time since shoes come in such a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes. Most shoe manufacturers make shoes that are designed to keep people safe while providing for comfort and style as well. Just be sure to take your time though, don't be cajoled into buying shoes that just don't fit right. Remember that an improperly fitted shoe can cause you pain and injury in your entire body. As long as you take that into consideration, you will be able to find many choices in shoes, especially online!
