Some Of The Features That You Need To Look For In A Good Fitting Sandal

Aug 18, 2007
Sandals have been around for a long time and are probably one of the oldest types of footwear in existence. Sandals do not apply to a particular class of people; in ancient times slaves as well as kings wore them equally. The sandal is still a popular choice in the footwear industry but a lot of people do not have the knowledge needed to choose sandals that fit properly. It is easy to tell if regular shoes fir properly because they are enclosed and you can feel how far you toe is from the end of the shoe. The proper fit of a pair of sandals can be a little harder to determine.

Sandals come a great variety of styles and looks just like other types of footwear some are best for the beach and some may even be made specifically for a certain sport such as hiking or even beach volleyball. It is essential that you take the time to make sure that the sandals you choose fit well so that you will be comfortable and not harm your feet.

As with other footwear you should first look for support in sandals. The arch of your foot is very important and needs to be protected when wearing sandals just as when you are wearing regular closed shoes. Find a shoe that will support the arch properly because this is what helps you walk in the most efficient manner possible and maintain your posture.

With sandals the sole should be a little larger than the actual size of your foot so that your toes or heel do not hang over the sides. Many sandals will have a form fitting sole and in order for this to occur as it should you will want to be sure that there is enough room for this process to occur.

You should also choose a think sole for a pair sandals since that is the only thing that is coming between you and the pounding pavement. You look for this in other shoes and sandals are no different. It is the sole of the shoe that absorbs the energy from the pounding of your feet on the ground.

So let's wrap it up. Always be concerned with making sure you have the right arch support so that your feet will be as healthy as possible and not tire easily. Be sure that the sole is oversized a bit so that your feet have room to mold them and be sure that the sole is thick to absorb the shock of repeated footstrikes.
