10 Footwear Fitting Tips

By: National Shoe Retailers Association, Prescription Footwear Association & American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society Public Information Office

1. Sizes very among shoe brands and styles. Don't select shoes by the size marked inside the shoe. Judge the shoe by how it fits your foot.
2. Select a shoe that conforms as nearly as possible to the shape of your foot.
3. Have your feet measured regularly. The size of your feet changes as you grow older.
4. Have BOTH feet measured. Most people have one foot larger than the other. Fit to the largest foot.
5. Fit at the end of the day when your feet are largest.
6. Stand during the fitting process and check that there is adequate space (3/8 inch to 1/2 inch) for your longest toe at the end of each shoe.
7. Make sure the ball of your foot fits snugly into the widest part of the shoe.
8. Don't purchase shoes that feel too tight, expecting them to "stretch" to fit.
9. Your heel should fit comfortably in the shoe with a minimum amount of slippage.
10. Walk in the shoe to make sure it fits and feels right. (When trying on safety shoes, Vanderloop Shoes suggests moving in positions that you normally would be in during work (ex. kneeling). Make sure that your toes are not rubbing against the safety toe.
