Footwear should be tried on in the afternoon as your feet swell during the day.
Try on the footwear with your normal socks (e.g. compression stockings). If you use insoles, also try the footwear on with them.
Shoes should be approx. 1 cm longer than your foot. Feet get longer as you walk.
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.
There must be plenty of room above the toes so that the footwear does not press on the toes.
The heel cap must fit snugly around the heel and it must be stable.
The footwear must have an effective closing system that firmly holds your foot when you walk.
Soft insole with maximum shock absorption.
Low heal - it makes walking easier and less pressure on the forefoot.
There must be no annoying seams inside the footwear. Feel carefully with your fingers.
Try the footwear on both feet - there can be a difference in your feet. Walk around the shop.
Be sure to check your footwear at regular intervals. Check if it still fits your feet as your feet change over time.
