Why Fit Matters…Get Your Shoes Fitted

Did you know that many adults (and children) are wearing shoes that are not the correct size? For many of us there is a temptation to purchase, keep, and wear shoes that look fashionable, but may not fit properly. Many ladies are especially prone to wearing a shoe because it’s just too fabulous to leave behind in the store, even if we know deep down that it doesn’t fit. Did you know that wearing shoes that don’t fit properly or are the wrong size can put you at risk for a variety of foot health conditions?

We at www.dtfootwear.com has the designer appearance but the therapeutic/orthopedic construction that will only help your feet not hurt them. No, we do not offer high heels ( for Ladies or Men) for reason I don’t think we need to go into detail because common sense will answer any questions on higher heels.

Hammer Toes

A hammertoe is a toe that is contracted at the PIP joint (middle joint in the toe), potentially leading to severe pressure and pain. Ligaments and tendons that have tightened cause the toe’s joints to curl downwards. Hammertoes may occur in any toe except the big toe. There is often discomfort at the top part of the toe due to rubbing against the shoe. Hammertoes are classified based on the mobility of the toe joints. There are two types – flexible and rigid. In a flexible hammertoe, the joint has the ability to move. This type of hammertoe can be straightened manually. A rigid hammer toe does not have that same ability to move. Movement is very limited and can be extremely painful. This sometimes causes foot movement to become restricted leading to extra stress at the ball-of-the-foot, and possibly causing pain and the development of corns and calluses.

Referred to in the medical community as Hallux Valgus, a Bunions re one of the most common forefoot problems. A bunion is a prominent bump on the inside of the foot around the big toe joint. This bump is actually a bone protruding towards the inside of the foot. With the continued movement of the big toe towards the smaller toes, it is common to find the big toe resting under or over the second toe. This causes a common forefoot condition called overlapping toes. Some of the symptoms of bunions include inflammation, swelling, and soreness on the side surface of the big toe. The discomfort commonly causes a patient to walk improperly.

Another type of bunion that some individuals experience is called a Tailor’s Bunion, also known as a Bunionette. This forms on the outside of the foot towards the joint at the little toe. It is a smaller bump that forms due to the little toe moving inwards, towards the big toe.

Corns like calluses develop from an accumulation of dead skin cells on the foot, forming thick, hardened areas. They contain a cone-shaped core with a point that can press on a nerve below, causing pain. Corns are a very common ailment that usually forms on the tops, sides, and tips of the toes. Corns can become inflamed due to constant friction and pressure from footwear. Corns that form between the toes are sometimes referred to as soft corns.

Ingrown Toenail

Known to physicians as onychocryptosis, ingrown toenails are a common, painful condition that occurs when the skin on one or both sides of a nail grows over the edges of the nail, or when the nail itself grows into the skin. This condition is usually very painful and can be associated with infection of the toe. Some ingrown toenails are chronic, with repeated episodes of pain and infection. Irritation, redness, an uncomfortable sensation of warmth, as well as swelling, can result from an ingrown toenail.

Overlapping Toes

Many disorders can affect the joints in the toes, causing pain and preventing the foot from functioning as it should. People of all ages can experience forefoot problems. Overlapping toes can occur in any of the toes and can cause extreme irritation if not corrected.
