A Well Known Fact: There is no better feeling than when you are wearing a comfortable shoe. Comfortable shoes allow us to enjoy the dayís activities pain-free. Wearing shoes that fit properly can also prevent potential health problems from occurring.

When To Buy: Most shoes can last an average of three to twelve months. As you begin to wear out a shoe, you begin to notice a difference in comfort. Worn out shoes can cause back pain, sore knee joints, or aching feet. The time to replace your shoes is when the cushion has broken down or the motion control has been lost.


Which Shoes To Buy? Everyone's foot is different. The best shoe for you is the one that gives you the proper fit, support, cushioning, and flexibility. Choose a well-cushioned stability shoe that compensates for any irregularities in your foot or your stride.


Some Helpful Shoe Buying Tips

  • Shop late in the day. Feet tend to swell as the day goes on. Shoes purchased in the morning will feel tight during by afternoon.
  • Shop for shoes with your health and comfort in mind. Your foot size changes every year. Always measure your foot first. This should give you a general range when considering different styles of shoes. Choose shoes that are shaped like your foot.
  • Check to see how the sole feels on the bottom of your foot. It should have a soft and supportive cushion. People with high arches generally need more support.
  • Stand up and take a quick walk to get a feel for the shoe. Your feet shouldn't slide around inside and there should be a little bit of room beyond the largest toe. But no more than 1/2 inch.


Remember: You should never have to "break-in" a tight shoe.
