3 Easy Steps to Great Fitting Shoes


  • Time your visit.
    • The best time to measure your feet is at the end of the day. Your feet swell as the day progresses.


  • Target your purchase.
    • Select Shoes which have a shape similar to your foot.
    • Uppers should be made of a soft, flexible material to match the shape of your foot.
    • Soles should not be slippery. They need to provide solid footing.
    • Low heeled shoes provide greater comfort, more safety and do less damage to your feet.
  • Achieve the best fit.
    • Always, have your foot measured before buying shoes. Don’t rely on the size you have “always” been. As you age, your shoe size will change.
    • Select shoes based on best fit, not the size marked on the inside of the shoe.
    • Most people have one foot larger than the other. Fit your shoes to your larger foot.
    • Ensure the ball of your foot fits comfortably in the widest part of the shoe.
    • Ensure there is 3/8″ to 1/2″ of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe.
    • Your heel should fit comfortably in the shoe with a minimum amount of slipping – the shoes should not ride up and down on your heel when you walk.
    • Do not expect shoes to stretch. If they are tight, find a pair which fits properly.
