Finding the right fit

Do you struggle to find shoes that fit your feet? Are you still waiting for that Cinderella moment?

Everybody’s feet are different; the right fit for one person can be completely wrong for someone else. When buying shoes, you need the correct footwear for the task and footwear that is correct for your feet.

We all battle to find footwear that both fits and meets our needs. Often the shoe is too narrow and squeezing the foot, or too big and slipping. Incorrect fitting footwear can lead to complications from blisters to impaired balance, or more serious long-term foot conditions like bunions, corns and calluses. These conditions are preventable by finding and wearing shoes that fit correctly.

The Balance Podiatry 2017 Healthy Feet Survey revealed that only 11 per cent of people surveyed had their feet professionally measured in the past 12 months. More than half of respondents said fit and comfort were their key considerations when purchasing footwear. This survey shows that people know the importance of correct fitting footwear and that they need to seek out professional assistance.
