As children we did not have the luxury of picking out our footwear, our mothers did this for us. As we grew we decided what shoes we wore and when. Not all women do this well, however. They tend to wear what is fashionable and trendy. In so doing they become inconsiderate to what is best for their feet.
Here are a few tips on how to keep your feet looking good and healthy
Do not wear high heels all day long: if you have decided on the heels, do so smartly, wear your highest where you don’t expect to be on your feet for a long time. A study shows that high heels are the leading cause of ingrown toenails and other toenail disfigurements.
Keep your flip-flops at home: these are not meant for everyday wear at all. In fact, most flip flops (some people call them slippers) are intended for pool or beach wear. If worn all the time they cause cuts and sprained ankles.
Throw out the worn out shoes- if your soles are no more and you can feel the ground under then it is best to ditch those old shoes. Shoes that are worn on a daily basis should be tossed out after six months according to an online source.
Many things cause fungal infections but the best environment for them to breed comfortably is your shoes! Why? Simply because they damp and sweaty. Therefore changing them regularly is mandatory.
Steer away from shoes that have been passed on from one person to another, from mother to sister and then to niece. By the time you get those shoes they have lost shape and will simply not fit properly.
