Did you know that Measure Your Feet Day was celebrated on Monday, January 23, 2017?
Don’t worry—even if you missed it, it’s never too late to have your feet professionally measured.
Experts report that 88% of women and 80% of men in the U.S. wear shoes that are too small. This can lead to pain, bunions, ingrown toenails, hammer toe, plantar fasciitis, biomechanical imbalances and an increased risk of falling.
The size of our feet can change for many reasons, including:
- Weight loss or gain
- Varied medical conditions including congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, cellulitis, scleroderma and lymphedema among others
The average person walks about 10,000 steps a day—and none of those steps should cause pain! Your two feet contain 25% of your body’s total skeletal bones. So they need and deserve the very best support possible—in the correct size.
At Foot Solutions, we honor Measure Your Feet Day all year long! And the size of your shoes is just one factor that we consider in helping to relieve pain, improve comfort, balance, performance and body alignment to help you look and feel your very best.
Our trained professional experts will properly measure your feet to determine your current shoe size—along with a holistic analysis of your stance, gait, lifestyle and foot-related issues. We measure your feet for the proper length and width, and assess the height of your arch. This enables us to provide a customized solution that is best for you.
