You’ve joined a gym and your exercise program is all planned out. Now you’re ready to hit the treadmill, right? Not if you don’t have the correct athletic shoes, warns the American Podiatric Medical Association. Choosing the proper athletic shoes can go a long way toward preventing many foot-related injuries. Your shoes should fit well and provide you with sufficient protection, and they should be appropirate for your particular activity.

The American Podiatric Medical Association offers these tips to help you select the best athletic shoes for your feet:

  • Don’t rely on your last pair of shoes as a barometer of size. A shoe’s model can change and feet can get larger and wider over time, so measure your feet – or get them measured – when you are in the store.
  • Try on shoes at the end of the day then feet are at their largest due to standing and walking from place to place. Bring the socks that you intend to wear with the shoes to ensure a proper fit.
  • If you have orthotics, bring them with you to ensure a good fit in your shoes.
  • If your orthotics are more than 3 years old, make an appointment for a check-up with your podiatrist. Your orthotics may need to be adjusted to ensure a continually effective fit. Bring your orthotics to all appointments.
  • In the Milwaukee Area, we often reccomend shopping at Stan’s Fit For Your Feet. They have many locations and a good selection of high-quality shoes.
