Buying new shoes is not a trivial matter and certainly not a matter to be taken lightly or carried out under pressure of time or constraint. Proper, high quality shoes have great significance for the health of the foot, lower extremities, pelvis, and especially the cervical spine, as well as meaning for the right comfort and stability with which each and every one of us can go through the daily life without feeling pain and suffering. So, how to choose the right shoes that suit us or our children? Here are some essential tips from orthopedic specialists Weinberg, tips to follow, literally.
First, it is advisable to purchase shoes in the afternoon or evening, when the foot has reached its peak size and climax due to walking, marching and heat created from being enclosed in a stocking and shoe. In the morning buying situation, the buyer can be surprised when the comfortable and working shoe becomes stressful and painful after a few hours. It is also important to measure the shoe with the type of sock with which the buyer will move most of the time, with the emphasis on the thickest stocking expected for Hegreb. The shoes should also be comfortable in a thick sock with the aim of walking around with them in the winter, in the cold, or on surfaces that require ski socks, military socks or thick winter socks.
It is important not to be lazy, although most of us do, and measure the matching shoes to both feet. Although it is clear to us that our bodies are symmetrical and our limbs are equal and identical, there may be minor differences in length or width of the feet so that sometimes the feeling of locking the left shoe, for example, can be different from the feeling caused by locking the right shoe and vice versa. It is important to feel the feeling on both legs and not be embarrassed to walk a few minutes back and forth in the store or around it, with the consent of the sellers in the store of course, to feel the movement of the feet inside the shoes and what they convey to you – moving and comfortable or painful and pressing.
As is customary in the army, “if there is doubt – there is no doubt.” Once you feel a kind of pressure or discomfort during walking, ask for half a size or larger measure, preferably bigger than too small or even, accurate.
An essential professional detail that can assist you in choosing a high quality shoe is the flexibility and rigidity of the various shoe parts. While the back of the shoe, which is supposed to accommodate the heel, ankle and back tendons, should be rigid and stable, the front of the shoe should flex and fold according to the movements of the foot. In order to test the stability of the shoe, simply place it on a hard surface, turn it on its side and allow it to return to its vertical position independently. If she returns without rocking back and forth, it is a stable, high quality shoe. The elasticity of the shoe is checked without the papers, the newspapers and the cardboard boxes crammed into new shoes and also without insoles. A shoe that folds to the end, ie, its front touching the heel area, is a shoe suitable for running needs or for certain sporting needs, which have special and special emphasis on them. For everyday needs, walking and walking, the shoes should be flexible but not completely free.
If you are walking around with orthopedic insoles, it is important to check the feeling with them. Therefore, you should remove the inner pads and insert in the pedals even during the examination and before the purchase. So the feeling is the most real and the test is most believed.
