Lifestyle plays an important role in choosing the right footwear that suits you, depending on if you are very active or working in an office will determine what you wear on your feet and what shoe is right for you. There are now many choices of footwear to choose from but how can you know which is right for you?
Maintaining foot comfort should be the top priority when choosing shoes, especially if the shoes are going to be worn majority of the day and be worn for exercise or other related activities. Shoes that fit your feet properly are essential, to avoid injuries such as heel blisters, or spraining an ankle.
Furthermore, it is important to consider different footwear for different activates such as hiking or running. This is important as different types of shoes give different types of support and are made for that specific activity, this will ensure optimal performance and minimal injury.
Once the sole is worn out the shoe may feel uncomfortable and less supportive. It might also look like you’ve had them for a while so that’s how you know its time throw them out.
A good pair of shoes, depending on how much exercise you do can last up to 6-12 months. If the shoes have not been worn as much or there hasn’t been a lot of exercise or activity done in them they should last up to at least a year.
