Size does matter…

Posted on Jan 29, 2018

   Size does matter…

especially when you are talking shoes.  Many of the conditions we treat are caused or aggravated by improperly sized shoe gear.  Bunions, neuromas, capsulitis, hammertoes, tailor’s bunions, plantar fasciitis, etc. can all be aggravated by improperly size shoes. The most important measurement is from the heel to ball of the foot.  Growing up, my mom always felt the end of the shoe to see where my toe fit.  The reality is we all have different lengths of toes just like fingers.  Where the toe sits is actually a small part of measuring for a proper shoe.  If you get the chance, stop by Professional Footwear/Fitted Foot in Columbus or Seymour and let our professionals size you appropriately before buying that next pair of shoes.
