Most people simply choose shoes by searching what they like and then searching for what fits them, and then they look at the price if they can afford them. If they can afford them, they will buy them. But this style of purchasing will not beet you to the best shoes that you needs for your feet to avoid foot odour. old shoes

Here are some of my recommendations:

1. Test them out First
Whenever you buy or purchase a pair of shoes don't forget to test them first by walking around the shop. If your feet are not comfortable with them, especially in the arches of your feet, try to find more until you find a better fit. Try to feel the cushioning of your shoes

2. Finding the Correct Cushioning that you need.
The cushioning aids the impact of the use of your shoes. It is a big help if you are a little overweight or if you have some other foot ailments.

3. Understand Pronation.
Over-pronate means to roll the foot too far to the inside and pushes off the inside edge of the forefoot. To under-pronate means to roll the foot more towards the surface or the little toe.

4. Try to Match the Shape of Your Foot With the Shoes.
Draw or trace your foot in a sheet of paper. This will help you see what shoes will best fit you.

5. Test the firmness of the Shoes.
Try to locate the heel counter. It is the part of the shoe that cups the heel. They need to fit your heel perfectly and should be solid. Over-pronaters and those with low arches need more stable shoes than under-pronaters.

6. Test The Shoe's Flexibility.
Try holding the shoe from the heel and mid foot and twist it. The more the shoe resists, the stiffer it is. This is very important for the under-pronaters (high arches) as they often need more flexibility in their shoes.

7. Match the Shoe to Your Activity.
Choose the shoes that will fit your activity, if you happen to be an athlete, buy a shoe that fits for your athletic activities. Choosing shoes that do not fit your activity can result in feet injuries.

8. Throw Them Out.
Undoubtedly the best tips ever. Change your shoes every 300-500 miles of running or 1,000 miles of walking. Replace your insoles frequently as well, rotate several pairs of shoes and save sport specific shoes strictly for their designated activity.
