Today, many have begun to actively take care of themselves and switched to a healthy lifestyle: they try to follow the regime, eat right, play sports. We would like to touch on the topic of the comfort and health of your feet. On the Internet, you can come across some statements about shoes that are not true. Unconditional belief in these judgments can lead to a number of problems, ranging from ordinary discomfort to health problems.
In this article, we decided to dispel some myths and save you from mistakes.
one. Children’s shoes are better to buy a size larger
This myth is known to every parent, and, unfortunately, some are still guided by it. It appeared back in the days of the USSR, when, due to the desire for longer use and economy, they bought shoes “for growth”. It is not convenient for children: it is more difficult to walk in it, scuffs and calluses appear, and sometimes the feet begin to deform. From an aesthetic point of view, dangling boots look messy.
Thanks to a large number of comments and articles by orthopedic doctors, this myth began to dispel. Increasingly, parents are realizing the importance of the proper development of the child’s musculoskeletal system and are buying shoes of the right size, not trying to save on the health of their children.
2. Heels are harmful to health
This statement requires clarification, since it cannot be called completely erroneous. According to experts, heels can only be harmful to health if their height is from 8 cm. Wearing high-heeled shoes every day can lead to protruding bones and joint disease. Shoes with a small heel of 2-5 cm can be worn daily without fear for your health. Models with a heel from 6 cm are best worn only for especially important events.
3. Choose tight-fitting shoes
Most often, women who want to hide the fullness of their legs believe in this. Alas, while wearing such shoes you will become uncomfortable. In addition to simple discomfort, you have every chance of rubbing corns, deforming your fingers, or even getting varicose veins in your legs. During the day, the foot increases slightly. If in the morning your shoes are tight on the leg, then by the evening they will become already cramped. Find the best option for you. New shoes should not be tight or dangling on the feet.
4. It is necessary to wear only orthopedic shoes
Real orthopedic shoes are made to order, where all the features of the human foot are taken into account. It is prescribed by orthopedists in cases of diseases and injuries of the legs. If you bought orthopedic shoes yourself, you can lose the flexibility of the foot by depriving it of training. As a preventive measure, it is recommended to use shoes with an anatomical insole. In our stores you can get acquainted with the Scholl brand, all shoes of which are designed taking into account the anatomical features of the foot.
5. Do not wear shoes made of artificial materials
We are sure that many people have heard about this judgment. Often, buyers refuse a pair they like just because it is not made of leather. We live in a time of high technology, and there are many artificial materials that are not inferior to natural ones. They can be wear-resistant, give the feet the opportunity to breathe, tolerate high or low temperatures well.
Only trusted brands are represented in SOHO and Clarks stores, for the quality of materials of which you definitely don’t have to worry, and our experienced consultants will help you choose the right shoes.
