Investing in the right shoes is also investing in one’s own foot health. To find shoes that are the right size, be sure have both of the feet measured when shopping, wear the same socks you intend to wear with the shoes, and spend time walking around in the shoes to determine how they feel on your feet. Examine the inside of the shoes and the soles. Trust in your own sense of comfort and not in a shoe’s size or description, as sizes differ between manufacturers and brands.  

Getting the right shoe size is important for overall foot health. If you have any concerns about shoe size, please contact Dr. Greg Khaimov, DPM of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC. Dr. Khaimov 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.

Todd Miller, together with his business partner Gary Pitman, has achieved the American Dream by creating a shoe company from scratch. The company, Anthony Alan Footwear, has successfully been selling minimalist shoes online. Miller has a background in science and education, and after receiving his master’s degree, he studied biomechanics. His background in biomechanics allowed him to work for footwear companies such as Avia Group International and Adidas. Before creating Anthony Alan Footwear, Miller consulted with shoe companies transitioning from traditional methods to a more technological model.

The biomechanics are the moving parts that manage the movement of your feet. If you would like more information, see Dr. Greg Khaimov, DPM of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC. Dr. Khaimov 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.
