Fit your shoes correctly

April 25, 2011

Your feet are what keep you upright and what help you walk in comfort, so make sure you look after them. This means having shoes that actually fit you correctly. Men’s trainers tend to come in a range of sizes from six to thirteen, and all men will know what size they roughly are. But is this the correct size and should they look for different sizes in different styles?

Firstly you need to look for signs that suggest your shoes do not fit correctly. If your toes are scrunched up and you can feel the end of your shoe, then you are wearing a shoe that is too small. You should have an easy gap between your foot and the end of your shoe, and be able to fully straighten all five toes.

Next see if your shoes gapes at the side or if your foot easily slips in and out of the trainer, boot or shoe. This is a sure sign that the footwear is slightly too large. This can be redeemed if it is the case of half a size or so, by putting in an extra sole inside your shoe. This will raise your foot slightly resulting in filling the shoe more.

The final big warning of a shoe not fitting properly is blisters, irritated bunions and friction marks on your feet. This can be when they are too small and when they are too big. At this point evaluate your shoes and consider being measured professionally.

All shoe shops will measure your feet for free and tell you your size and width, more often than not one foot will be larger than the other, but always go with the larger of the two sizes. Having your feet measured as an adult is just as important as having them done whilst you are growing up.

Have a browse through men’s shoes at and you will find a wonderful range of shoes in all sizes to suit the needs of your feet at the present time. Your feet’s health is essential, so give them the TLC they deserve.
