Favor Natural Movement

Once again, we’re not talking about a flat, minimalist approach. However, the feet should still be able to move naturally with the support given by a proper shoe.

If a shoe is too tight and restrictive, the foot may not move as it should and stress can build up in areas where it shouldn’t. This can very well cause or aggravate instances of heel pain.

Always take a few moments to walk around in any shoes you are thinking of buying to make sure the feel comfortable and natural to move in. Your toes should always have wiggle room and the heel should not slide around too much in the back.

An ideal time to shop for shoes is later in the afternoon, when feet are typically swollen a bit due to gravity. If they fit well then, odds are they will fit well anytime.
