2. Make Sensible Footwear Choices
A study by The College of Podiatry in 2017, found that over half of all women wear the wrong size shoe. A third of the 2000 women surveyed said that they often wear shoes that don’t fit them correctly.
Wearing ill-fitting shoes can be dangerous as it creates many adverse health risks with your feet, knees, and hips.
Women who wear high heels during their youth and career years might develop bunions. The tight toe-boxes of these shoes force the toes inward, placing pressure on the joint of the big toe that results in the development of a bunion. High heels may also lead to the onset of Morton’s neuroma, a condition where the tissues between the toes thicken, placing pressure on the nerves that results in a feeling of numbness in the toes.
Toss out the heels and get yourself some comfortable shoes with accommodative toe-boxes that allow your toes to spread.
