The World’s Most Comfortable Shoes

Many people stand all day as part of their job duties. This includes nurses, retail clerks, security guards and more. The choice of footwear plays a significant role in the individual's comfort, but it is much more important than this. When the right shoe is selected, back, knee and leg pain tend to decrease, and the risk of blisters is substantially reduced. The same holds true for those individuals who have foot problems. How do people go about finding the right shoe for their needs? What should they be searching for when purchasing new footwear?

Why Do The Feet Get Tired And Ache After Standing All Day?

The wrong shoes, such as those with high heels or tight shoes, lead to foot pain and fatigue, but this is only one of many problems a person may experience. Shoes often lack the cushioning and support a person needs when they are on their feet all day, and the flooring surface being walked on can affect a person's feet. Pronation and arch shape may bring about pain in the feet, knees, back, and ankles. Individuals who are overweight need more stability and cushioning in their shoes, and foot problems, like heel spurs or tendonitis, can bring about fatigue in the feet and instability.

The Right Shoe

Choosing the right shoe is of great importance. Footwear needs to be comfortable and supportive, and individuals should avoid any shoes with high heels or narrow toes. Look for shoes that help to absorb shock and those that distribute weight evenly over the foot. Foot pain and fatigue can often be attributed to shoes that aren't the right size, so make certain the shoes fit correctly. Sizing Many people aren't aware of the steps they need to take to ensure their shoes are the right size. For example, if the shoe fits in length, they may think they are set, yet width is of importance also. Sizes do differ by brand. Thus every pair needs to be tried on initially to determine the appropriate size.

Furthermore, the time of day when the feet are measured is of importance. A person who spends lots of time on their feet needs to have their foot measured at the end of the day after they have been standing for an extended period. This is due to the swelling that occurs when a person is standing all day.

Heel Size

Flat shoes are best, right? Most people assume this is the case, as heels throw off the natural alignment of the body. A small heel is best, as this type of footwear provides the support the arch needs. Shoes with a heel between 1/4" and 2" is best, while shoes with higher heels place additional pressure on the toes and the front portion of the foot. Broad heels offer more weight support, and wedge sandals help to distribute pressure across the foot. When flat shoes are required by an employer, be sure to look for ones with ample support and cushioning.

The Soul Of The Shoe

The soul of the shoe is the sole. People who are on their feet all day need cushioning to ensure their feet don't ache when they finally get to sit down. The sole is of great importance for this reason. Press a finger in the ball portion of the shoe's sole. It should adapt to the foot's contours. If it doesn't, another pair needs to be selected. The front portion of the sole needs to bend also, but the midsole should remain stable at all times.

Breathability

One problem many people who stand on their feet all day encounter is sweaty feet. To avoid this issue, individuals who work in a job that requires a great deal of standing need shoes that are aerated and lightweight. The aeration helps the foot adjust to temperature variations, and this will be of benefit as overheating, fungus issues and excessive sweating become less of a concern. Also, breathable insoles reduce the risk of chafing and blistering.

Rotation Of Shoes

Don't wear the same pair of shoes every day. It's best to rotate different pairs to avoid pain and fatigue. Shoes differ regarding where they hit pressure points and how they support the feet. The various pairs help the individual use different muscle groups and also contributes to providing relief to those areas that are most overused.

Change Shoes Regularly

In addition to changing shoes on a daily basis, if not during the work day, individuals who spend lots of time on their feet need to buy new shoes routinely. All shoes wear out over time. Thus they aren't able to provide the necessary support. People often continue to wear them, however, as they are broken in and comfortable. Doing so could lead to pain and fatigue, though, so it's best to replace the shoes on a routine basis.

Take A Seat

Regardless of which shoes are worn, people need to sit down every so often. Try to take a seat for a few minutes out of every hour to provide some much-needed relief to the feet and legs. If this isn't possible, take a break from standing in one position and walk around for a few minutes. This help to increase the flow of blood to the legs. If this isn't possible either, shift body weight from one leg to another. This allows one leg to get some relief while the other leg is supporting the body.

Comfortable shoes can be both fashionable and functional. There is no longer any need to settle for the plain white shoes nurses used to wear in the past. Anyone can have shoes they love to wear without doing harm to their body and their feet.

Alegria now offers more than 365 pairs of shoes to choose from, so people can have a different pair for every day of the year. Regardless of which styles are selected, these shoes are sure to become favorites in a very short period, as they are fashionable, functional and comfortable. Not many companies can say the same about the footwear they offer.
