What Should I Look for in a Shoe?

What Should I Look for in a Shoe?

Shoes are so important to your foot health and your overall structure and movement! When you are looking for shoes - especially shoes you are going to spend a lot of time in - it is critical you look for these three qualities:

  1. Be sure the shoes bend at the ball of the foot (the area where the toes attach to the foot) and don’t continue into the arch
  2. Be sure the shoes do not have a lot of torque when you twist the front of the shoe and the back of the shoe in the opposite direction
  3. Be sure the shoes have a firm heel counter (the part of the shoe directly behind your heel that cups your heel).

These three qualities combined will give stability to your foot and ankle.
