“The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.” Leonardo da Vinci
Footwear covers a large section of the retail and fashion industry and our feet have the task of being put in (at times) some interesting designs. Many feet can withstand a variety of shoes styles over time but it is when pain or discomfort occurs we often forget the importance the role a good shoe can have on our foot function and comfort. Our feet are an amazing design that naturally withstanding multiple forces every step of our lives. The variety of surfaces we walk, run and play on impacts the forces generated through our bodies. In podiatry we not only look at the footwear that is specific to the activity but also the individual wearing it. As podiatrists we take into account more than just your foot shape or foot position!
Finding the correct pair of shoes for you will better protect you from injury, maximise your performance and ensure life long foot health.
We can assist you with getting the shoe for your needs as well as providing advice on the type of material, shape and support for your chosen activity. Therefore it is best to see a podiatrist if you are unsure.
