A well-fitted shoe can be your best friend.
Wearing comfortable well-fitting shoes can make walking enjoyable and prevent falls. Ill-fitting shoes can increase discomfort from bunions, corns, calluses, hammertoes and other foot problems thus limiting activity. In addition pain can cause you to alter the pattern of your gait and this can affect your balance. All of these factors put you at greater risk of falling.
So how do you choose your new “best friend”?
Before you buy new shoes – take a look at your old shoes:
Take care of your feet and they will take care of you; an old adage but ever so true.
Enjoy your new best friend!
