Properly-fitting athletic shoes not only help with enhancing performance but can help prevent injuries as well. When choosing athletic shoes, opt for buying them toward the end of the day, as your feet swell during the day. Wear the respective socks you would use when using your athletic shoes, make sure there is toe room to wiggle and that the shoes are comfortable. Test the shoes by running in them to ensure that they are comfortable, and ensure that there is a firm grip of the shoe to your heels.

Finding a properly-fitting shoe is important in reducing injuries and preventing foot problems. For more information about treatment contact Dr. Mayer Salama, DPM of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will do everything possible to treat your condition.

Proper Shoe Fitting

A common concern when it comes to foot health, having properly fitted shoes can help prevent injuries to the foot. Out feet affect our posture and gait, which in turn affects the biomechanics and overall bodily structure. With 33 joints, 26 bones, and over 100 ligaments, the potential for serious injury is much greater than one realizes. Although the feet cease growth in adulthood, they still change shape as they mature. Here are some factors to consider when it comes to investing in proper fitting shoes:

  • Be sure the shoes fit correctly right away
  • Ensure the ball of your foot fits comfortably in the widest portion of the shoes
  • Even though they may look fashionable, improper fitting shoes can either create adverse conditions or exacerbate existing ones you may already have
  • Walk along a carpeted surface to ensure the shoes comfortably fit during normal activity

Keeping in mind how shoes fit the biomechanics of your body, properly-fitting shoes is vitally important. Fortunately, it is not difficult to acquire footwear that fits correctly. Be sure to wear shoes that support the overall structure of your body. Do your feet a favor and invest in several pairs of well-fitted shoes today.

Leading comfort footwear brand ABEAO biomechanical footwear has recently launched a new shearling collection of footwear. The new line features the support of built-in orthotics to fit a certain foot type, ultra-lightweight designs, and advanced biomechanical technology. ABEO footwear president Lee Cox shared, “With the growing popularity of the ABEO brand and the significant benefits of improved biomechanics through advanced footwear designs, we are excited to offer a new collection that will meet consumers specific needs for comfort and style through the winter season.”  

The biomechanics are the moving parts that manage the movement of your feet. If you would like more information, see Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can assess and provide in-depth information as well as measure your personal foot biomechanics.  

A History of Biomechanics

- Biomechanics dates back to the BC era in Egypt where evidence of professional foot care has been recorded.
- In 1974 biomechanics gained a higher profile from the studies of Merton Root, who claimed that by changing or controlling the forces between the ankle and the foot, corrections or conditions could be implemented to gain strength and coordination to the area.

Modern technology improvements are based on past theories and therapeutic processes providing a better understanding of podiatry concepts for biomechanics. Computers provide accurate determinations about the forces, moments and patterns of the foot and lower legs with the most important information captured.

Advances in materials and more awareness of biomechanics have developed enhanced corrective methods, offering further options for foot-related injuries. Understanding foot biomechanics can help improve and eliminate pain, stopping further stress to the foot.
