December is the best month of the year to wear nice shoes. However, sometimes our feet end up hurt, and for this reason, we share with you some simple tricks to enjoy your holidays!
It's a tradition to meet with family and friends, but the excitement makes us forget that our feet have to feel good in new shoes to avoid further problems.
Prevention is key
- Paying attention to shoes instead of our feet can bring consequences to our health. For example, if you choose a shoe with a not suitable last to your foot, like with a narrow tip for a little wide foot, the friction will not be painful at the moment, but I can assure you that it will hurt you later. Also, if you have an ingrown toenail or any other injury at your foot, it will be receiving additional pressure.
- “If 39 size is too tight for you, then buy 40, and that's it!", could be a huge mistake. It's not only an issue of size but the shape of your foot and the footwear you choose. It’s a good idea to buy shoes at the end of the day because that way you can verify how your foot will feel in it when it's tired.
- Another practical advice is to be careful when buying very cheap shoes because as much as we like them, sometimes they produce dermatitis in the feet. Why? The colorants they put on them are not the best quality, and they can get in contact with our skin. Have you heard this before? We just heard it from a podiatrist! So it's best to check it out in more detail or look for another purchase option.
