Some serious foot disorders, and even more common conditions, can be linked to one avoidable thing: inappropriate, poor quality or ill-fitting shoes. Here are some general tips:
- Any podiatrist will tell you that a good quality, properly fitting shoe pays big dividends for your feet down the road.
- When shopping for shoes, always make sure to not force your feet in order to conform to the shape of a pair of shoes.
- The most important quality to look for in shoes is durable construction that will protect your feet and keep them comfortable.
- Shoes that do not fit properly can cause bunions, corns, calluses, hammertoes and other disabling foot disorders.
