What to Look For In Ideal Shoes

Our feet bear the extraordinary burden of our day-to-day living. They support up to 3-4 times the weight of our body and allow us to be mobile. It is important our feet are well supported and protected, so shoes play a vital role in this. Points to consider when buying shoes:

  • Have at least 2cm gap between our longest toe to the end of the shoes in adult and about 1-1.5cm gap for children
  • No pinching on the sides of the shoes. You must be able to wiggle your toes with the shoes on
  • Good midfoot support – Avoid shoes that twist easily from side to side
  • Firm heel counter with padded collar to protect and support to your heel and Achilles tendon. A well-padded collar helps to avoid irritation where the material meets your ankle
  • Choose natural upper material such as leather or natural fibres. This allows your foot to breathe and prevent tinea and blister
  • Protective toe box
  • Padded tongue to reduce foot slippage and ensure proper fit.
  • Soft lining – look for minimal number of seams to avoid irritation
