A customer shops for athletic shoes at a Nike store.Selecting the right pair of shoes to work out in is important in order to maintain your foot health and maximize your results. According to research, poorly sized footwear can lead to adverse conditions. “Symptoms include pain along the inner border of the shin bone of aches and stiffness” said Hilda Scott of ITech Post, “In severe cases, muscle tightness, swelling, redness and lumps may occur in the area of pain”. When shopping for the right exercise shoes in the future, select shoes with the ample wiggle room, arch support and shock absorption. Shoes should have approximately 3/8 to 1/2 inch of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe.

Wearing properly fitted exercise shoes can serve to prevent injuries and adverse conditions to your legs and feet. Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay can help size your feet and provide recommendations on the best exercise footwear for your feet so they remain healthy and can provide care should you develop any foot problems.

Getting the Right Shoe Size: How to Keep Your Feet Happy

Are your shoes the right size? Many people are walking around with ill-fitting shoes. Picking the right shoe size is not rocket science, but there are a few things to remember when selecting your next pair.

· Make sure your toes are not cramped
· Be able to wiggle your toes
· There should be one inch between your toes and the shoe’s tip

Most shoe stores and department stores have rulers for measuring your feet, and these can give you an exact size. Be sure to measure with your shoe on. Measuring your foot will give you a different size than your shoe. If you do measure your foot size, you will need to add 1-2 inches to get the proper sizing.

If your shoes are not properly sized, you can experience:

· foot pain
· knee pain
· blisters
· swelling

Don’t assume that you will always wear the same size in a shoe. Often manufacturers size shoes differently. The size you wear with one company may not be the same as the size you wear with another.

The biggest concern in buying shoes is comfort. If a shoe does not fit in the store, it will not fit at home either. Comfort should be the ultimate goal when purchasing a pair of shoes.
