Check how to choose shoes so as not to suffer.

How to choose shoes for adults?

Contrary to appearances, choosing the right model of shoes, even for an adult, is not so easy. You probably have suffered more than once from poorly chosen shoes, corns, abrasions, pain in the feet, calves or spine. Fortunately, this can be remedied. When choosing footwear, it is worth paying attention to the following guidelines:

  • Size

A well-chosen size is extremely important. Footwear should not be too large or too small. If it is too large, the foot will move and the shoe may chafe it. In addition, wearing such shoes causes unpleasant pain in the feet and calves. Shoes that are too small may lead to deformation of the foot. A person who wears these shoes places their foot on the outer edge or on the heel, which can cause pain and even cause flat feet. In well-fitting shoes, the gap between the toe and the toes should be about 5 mm.

  • The right shape

When choosing shoes, it is best that the toecap of the shoe fits the shape of your foot. It should not constrict or distort it. This can lead to degenerative changes in joints and fingers and to halluxes.

  • Appropriate height

Women's legs in high heels look beautiful. However, if you sometimes want to give your legs a rest, but to look just as stylish, you can choose comfortable pumps, e.g. model Seastar brown pumps with flat heels or e.g. black melissa open wedges S22.

  • Good sole

The sole is also important in the footwear, thanks to which your feet can rest and do not hurt while walking. The sole should be profiled to provide adequate support for the foot. It is the most important in sports shoes, because its task is to absorb shocks. An example of such shoes are, for example, running shoes Nike Viale M AA2181-003 or running shoes Asics Gel-FujiTrabuco 7 M G-TX M 1011A209-600. Their properly profiled soles provide comfort and stability while walking and at the same time protect the feet against injuries.

  • High quality

Also remember to choose good quality shoes. Shoes made of the cheapest materials will not allow enough air to pass through, which will prevent your feet from breathing and sweat excessively. We recommend e.g. brown pumps wedge Edeo 2354made with the greatest care of natural leather.

  • The lightness of the footwear

When buying shoes, also pay attention to their weight. Ideally, they should be as light as possible. It will undoubtedly affect the degree of tiredness of your feet after a whole day of walking. Heavy footwear makes the legs more tired and can swell or ache at the end of the day. We recommend e.g. running shoes Asics Gel-Venture 7 Gs Jr 1014A072-020  with a light and airy upper.

How to choose comfortable shoes for a child?

When choosing footwear for a child, you need to be especially careful. Our kids' delicate feet are just developing, which is why they are extremely vulnerable to distortions and various types of abrasions. Remember that the condition of your child's foot has a significant impact on his entire motor system. What to consider when choosing shoes for the little ones? Above all:

  • Size

Baby shoes must not be too big or too small. Too big ones will not provide support for your feet, and too small ones will cause leg and knee pain, abrasions, foot deformities, flat feet. The distance between the toes and the toe of the shoe should be 5 to 6 mm, and the toe cap must not restrict the movement of the toes. The shoes should be stable, but at the same time they should not pinch or block the foot.

  • Shape

Children's shoes should have round toes to allow the toes freedom of movement. For example, shoes will be a good choice American Club brown Winter boots boots bootees American 1904.

  • Material

The sole, its profile and material are also important. Ideally, all shoes should be made of good quality, soft materials, natural leather or cotton, such as Bartek navy blue Casual boys shoes 55599 navy blue made of natural leather, which allows for a perfect fit to the foot without the risk of abrasions.

  • Lacing and upper

Children's shoes can be laced or Velcro fasteners which are easier to put on and take off. For young children who have recently learned to walk, shoes must have a high upper to provide adequate ankle support, e.g. boys' shoes Ren But 1423 gray if Velcro shoes Bartek 11703 for girls.

All in all, choosing a well-fitting shoe is not an easy task and you should consider a number of factors. When choosing the right footwear, it is worth paying attention to the right size, material from which they are made, the sole or the shape. Remember that well-chosen footwear is extremely important not only for the well-being of your feet, but also for your spine. Therefore, treat the purchase of shoes not only as a pleasure, but also as an investment in health. Check the shoe models available on KeeShoes and choose the variant that suits you.
