Shoes and Preventing Foot Problems - foot Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, Foot Specialist, Toronto, ON Podiatrist Sheldon Nadal discusses How to Choose Shoes and Preventing Foot Problems http://www.footcare.net Examining old shoes before buying new ones can help you evaluate your wear patterns and buy new shoes with a better fit and style that compensates for the stresses you place on shoes. What are your shoes trying to tell you? Here is a translation of basic wear patterns: • A bulge and wear to the side of the big toe means too-narrow fit or you have a bunion. • Outer sole wear means you turn your foot out. Orthotics may help. • Toe-shaped ridges on the upper means your shoes are too small or you have hammertoes. • Wear on the ball of the foot means your heel tendons may be too tight. • Wear on the inner sole means you pronate or turn your foot inward. Inner liners or orthotics may help. • Wear on the upper, above the toes means the front of your shoe is too low.
