Let’s make a New Year’s resolution together: find a pair of shoes that are foot-friendly and will accommodate a pair of orthotic insoles inside them. Sound good? Depending on what sort of foot and ankle issues you’ve dealt with throughout your life, this might sound easier said than done.

Wearing footwear that fits appropriately is more important than you might think, however. It could mean the difference between a slight strain and a full-blown injury, especially during this winter season. In addition to this, properly fitting shoes can help reduce the likelihood of developing different foot and ankle related issues - like plantar fasciitis, flat feet, bunions, hammertoes, and so on.

We’ve compiled three of the best things to keep in mind when looking for your next pair of shoes that will blow the old pair out of the water (or closet):

  1. Researching shoes before you buy them is a great way to prepare ahead of time, but don’t buy blind!  It’s easy to just click a few times on your browser but waiting all that time for them to be delivered only to find out that they don’t fit your feet will be a huge bummer.
  2. Know what you need! Just as important as researching your ideal shoe before purchasing is knowing exactly what you want and need out of your shoes.
  3. What problems are you faced with when it comes to your feet and ankles? If you have a history of ankle sprains, are the prospective shoes going to be supportive of your ankle stability?

If you keep these three things in mind while looking into your next pair of shoes, you’ll be golden! Don’t hesitate to reach out to Dr. Brad Toll, DPM at Crofton Podiatry at (410) 721-4505 if you have any further questions about finding the right fit. We proudly serve patients in Crofton, Gambrills, Odenton and Bowie MD.
