Enjoy the Tips to help you keep your feet in tip top shape. The “break in your shoes” rule – let it go! You do not have to break in your shoes. Purchasing comfortable shoes right out of the box is the only way to buy shoes. Assuming your shoes have to be broken is not the answer for buying shoes that do. It fit well when you buy them. Poorly fitting shoes can lead to corns, calluses and other
problems.

Happy fit makes for happy feet. Buy shoes that fit and enjoy the lifespan of your favorites with no “ break in” time. InGrown toenails should not be Ignored. Did you know that unless you remove the part of the nail that is growing into the skin, IT WONT GO AWAY. And worse, sometime when you “ do it yourself” you are making matters worse. If you have an ingrown toenail, see your Medical Provider. It is best that you get help from a professional who will advise your and prevent problems.

Toenail Fungus – more common than you Think.

BUT…. Yes! Toenail fungus is one of the most common reasons that people visit a podiatrist. A few things you can do to prevent a fungal infection include:
– clean your feet everyday.
– trim your toe nails straight across
– dry your feet after each shower
– if you notice a nail is getting thick (usually the pinky toe) file it down from the top of the nail.

Say good bye to old shoes… a great excuse to buy new ones!

Knowing when it is time to retire shoes is important to maintaining happy healthy feet.

Shoes don’t last forever. Wearing shoes past their lifespan is not good for your feet.

Check your shoes regularly? Make sure your shoes are giving you the support you need for comfort. And if they appear to cause you pain or not enough support, do not pass go, instead go straight to your favorite shoe haven and buy….happy feet are worth every new pair!
