CHOOSING THE RIGHT SHOE FOR YOU

We give honest straightforward advice of what’s best for you.

Your choice of shoe is an extremely important decision, as the right pair will help to protect you from injury or help your recovery from injury, whilst the wrong pair can cause pain and discomfort.

Often, people buy the wrong type of shoe for their foot-type. Many people believe that cushioning is the most important factor when selecting their shoes. But, if you have any biomechanical abnormalities, stability is the most important factor to consider.

Feet come in many shapes and sizes and are all very different. Shoes are also technically very different, some are designed for normal feet, some for flat or pronated feet and some for supinated, highly arched feet; the science is in matching the right shoe to your individual requirements.

At podiatry.ie we understand that wearing the right type of sports shoe will significantly reduce the risk of injury.

Researchers have identified the wrong “type” of sports shoe as being the main contributor to overuse injuries.
