New Feet's Shoe Guide

When?


Footwear should be tried on in the afternoon as your feet swell during the day.

 

Remember socks


Try on the footwear with your normal socks (e.g. compression stockings). If you use insoles, also try the footwear on with them.

The length of the shoe


Shoes should be approx. 1 cm longer than your foot. Feet get longer as you walk.

Shape


If the insole can be taken out, you can check that the length fits. The shape must fit your foot, and it must not be too narrow.

Room above the toes


There must be plenty of room above the toes so that the footwear does not press on the toes.

Stable heel cap


The heel cap must fit snugly around the heel and it must be stable.

Closure system


The footwear must have an effective closing system that firmly holds your foot when you walk.

Shock absorption


Soft insole with maximum shock absorption.

Low heal


Low heal - it makes walking easier and less pressure on the forefoot.

Seams


There must be no annoying seams inside the footwear. Feel carefully with your fingers.

Both feet


Try the footwear on both feet - there can be a difference in your feet. Walk around the shop.

Regular checks


Be sure to check your footwear at regular intervals. Check if it still fits your feet as your feet change over time.
