Dr. Brant McCartan recently teamed up with Stan’s Fit for Feet and New Balance of Milwaukee in Greenfield, WI for a free foot screen. Dr. McCartan met some wonderful members of the community and enjoyed giving each advice on their foot problems. Here is some helpful advice when shopping for new shoes.
When buying new shoes, always try both shoes on and take a stroll around the store.
Wear your shoes around the house for a few days to ensure they are comfortable; once you wear shoes outdoors, they are often non-returnable.
Get your feet measured every few years. Your shoe size can change.
Make sure you are buying the right width of shoe. Wider and narrower sizes are often available especially in athletic shoes.
