Technology developed by Swedish firm Volumental can now reportedly scan the feet and recognize what size shoe would best fit the feet. Using 3D cameras such as Microsoft’s Kinect or Intel’s RealSense, the technology would map a person’s foot in seconds. The cameras would be connected to a computer and rotate around the foot to create a 3D image that depicts a specific shape and size. If successful, Volumental would be eliminating the need for customers to try on multiple sizes of shoes before finding their best fit; the technology would determine it for them.

Getting the right shoe size is important for overall foot health. If you have any concerns about shoe size, please contact Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will answer any of your foot and ankle questions.

Getting the right shoe size

Sometimes it may be difficult finding the right shoe size because shoe sizes tend to vary depending on the brand and company you are considering. A size 6 for one brand may be a size 7 in another. Although many people know their exact shoe size, shoe size can vary within two sizes depending on where they shop.

When shoe shopping, it is best to try on the shoe and walk around for a bit to see how it fits and how it feels. Comfort is essential and the shoe must fit well, as ill-fitting shoes can lead to blisters, bruises at the back of the ankle and can also hurt the toes if the shoe is too tight.

Shopping online for shoes can be very tricky and time consuming, especially since you cannot try on the shoe or see how it fits or how it feels.

Proper Shoe SizeCarol Cornachini, who owns Branhaven’s Plaza Shoetique, worked with a group of women from BHcare, an organization that aids people who are struggling with domestic abuse, mental illness and substance abuse. Cornachini, along with other workers, helped to provide shoe-fitting and footwear for the group. “We serve our customers the old fashioned way,” Cornachini says, “we take care of them. We want them to feel taken care of. We want them to walk out of here happy customers and come back happy customers.”

The mother of two descends from an extensive family line of shopkeepers and works as a school-nurse during the off-summer seasons. The group of women exchanged hugs and smiles with the staff, stating they had never ‘felt so special’ or having worn a nicer pair of shoes. Cornachini has partaken in these acts of kindness for years, adding a loving touch to her business ethics.

Wearing properly fitted exercise shoes can serve to prevent injuries and adverse conditions to your legs and feet. Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care can help size your feet and provide recommendations on the best exercise footwear for your feet so they remain healthy and can provide care should you develop any foot problems.

Getting the Right Shoe Size

There are many people that wear shoes that are ill-fitting, which affects their feet and posture. Selecting the right shoes is not a difficult process so long as you keep several things in mind when it comes to selecting the right pair.

· When visiting the shoe store, use the tools available to measure your foot
· When measuring your foot with your shoe on, add 1-2 inches to the size
· Be sure there is ‘wiggle room’. There should be about an inch between your toes and the tip of your shoes
· Do not always assume you are the same size, as manufacturers run differently
· Purchase shoes later in the day as your feet swell as the day progresses
· If a shoe is not comfortable, it is not suitable. Most shoes can’t be ‘broken in’, and comfort should be the ultimate goal when it comes to choosing the right pair of shoes

As our feet hold our body weight and keep us moving, it is important to treat your feet right by choosing the right pair of shoes that can provide them comfort and mobility with minimal pain.
