Choosing the right footwear is not only important to the health of our feet and legs but the overall health of the human body, as any discomfort to the feet will inhibit movement and make standing a chore. Offering protection for the feet from stones, hard surfaces, injury-causing products and even the effect of the weather, women over the generations have had to choose between comfort and fashion, and in most cases, fashion wins. However, many women have learnt that comfort and fashion do not have to be mutually exclusive, especially when one has an active lifestyle or a career that requires a lot of standing and moving about. Many orthopaedic problems like bunions, calluses, spurs and plantar fasciitis are caused by wearing ill-fitting footwear, so it is advisable to ensure that the right fit of the shoe is chosen at every time. People with big feet particularly struggle with getting fanciful designs, as their options might often appear limited to boring products, and some people might be tempted at some point to throw caution to the wind, or find ways to make their favourite pair of shoes last forever. But the consequences of ill-fitting shoes are long-term, so individuals need to know information such as their foot shape and arch, viz-a-viz the lifestyle of the wearer before a shoe is purchased. Whether the feet are low-arched, neutral arched or high-arched will determine the type of insoles or footbed needed for proper cushioning. When choosing a shoe, it is also important to ensure that about half an inch of space exists between your big toe and the shoes. You can also walk around for a bit with the shoes to get a feel of how it feels like. More importantly, though, is the material from which the shoe is made. Shoes made from products that are hard and unbreathable do not only increase the chances of orthopaedic injury but also lead to odours that are offensive and unhealthy. Luckily, companies are designing alternative products that will not only promote the healthy feet of the wearer but will also be healthy for the environment. One such is Butterfly Twist, a company that claims to manufacture its products from materials that are safe and healthy for the environment and the wearer.
