Good Shoes for Bad Feet

Finding the right shoe to alleviate foot pain can both prevent and treat foot problems such as bunions and calluses. Here is a list of things to remember when shopping for shoes to relieve pressure from the aggravated area of either joint problems or a deformity.

Try on shoes at the end of the day when feet are largest due to swelling

Bring shoe inserts with you to try on with shoes. We really like foot petals!

Shoe size, particularly width can change with age so get feet measured while standing and go with the largest size foot to determine shoe size


Avoid high heels and pointy toe shoes. If you must wear them, a safe rule of thumb is no higher than 2 inches

There should be 1/2  inch between your longest toe and the end of the shoe
