Tips for fitting Shoes

Picking the right footwear for your activities is crucial to your performance and well-being. The right shoe will give you the support and protection you need to excel while preventing stress and injury. Proper fit is imperative.

Checklist for trying on shoes:

  • Don’t go just by the size that you think you are, measure your feet. A number of factors can change your size over the years. (This is especially important if you are fitting a youth for shoes.)
  • Choose the size that matches your larger foot. Yes. We all have one foot slightly larger than the other.
  • Try on shoes towards the end of the day, or after a work out. This is when your feet will be at their largest and you’ll get a better sense of how they’ll feel while your active.
  • Wear the same type of socks you’ll be wearing. Sock weight and style can tremendously affect the feel of your shoes.
  • Adjust the lacing to fit your feet. Simply re-tying the top eyelet will not give you the accurate feel for your foot.
  • They should be comfortable right from the start. There is no breaking in period. If it’s tight now, it’ll be uncomfortable later.
  • Make sure there is a firm fit on the heel. Try walking around, or sprint down the aisle to check for slippage.
  • Leave about half an inch space towards the front of the shoe. Wiggle those toes! Happy toes, make for a happy athlete.
