Proper Fitting Shoes
Selecting a shoe that fits properly is critical. Over 80% percent of consumers don't wear shoes that fit correctly. Shoes that don't fit properly can cause a variety of problems ranging from blisters, corns and calluses, to foot, leg and back pain.

• Sizes may vary among shoe brands and styles. Don't select shoes by the size, judge the shoe by how it fits on your foot.
• Select a shoe that mimic’s the shape of your foot.
• Have your feet measured regularly. The size of your feet may change as you grow older.
• Have both feet measured. Most people have one foot larger than the other. Fit to the largest foot.
• Fit at the end of the day when your feet are the largest.
• Stand during the fitting process and check that there is adequate space (3/8 to 1/2 inch) for your longest toe at the end of each shoe.
• Make sure the ball area of your foot fits into the widest part of the shoe.
• Do not purchase shoes that feel too tight, and expect them to stretch to fit correctly.
• Your heel should fit comfortable in the shoe with a minimum amount of slippage.
• Walk in the shoe to make sure the shoe fits and feels right. Fashionable shoes can be comfortable

At Diabetic and Comfort Shoes each shoe is carefully reviewed and selected by our trained medical staff to provide the best quality and selection.
