In this episode we are taking on a fun discussion about how to go about picking the right shoes for your active lifestyle.
If anything, we love shoes! And selecting the right one for your feet can sometimes be overlooked. Everyone has different levels of activity whether it be running, jogging, walking, bicycling, or just moving around the house, we all have different needs and when it comes to our feet we need to pay special attention, especially when there are so many options these days!
Our feet get used everyday and take a lot of punishment to move us around, especially if we are exercising regularly. To make light of the best ways to select great shoes Meredith gives us some very useful tips in this informative episode.
In This Episode You Will Learn:
1). Why it’s so important to know that good foot ware is not only about comfort but also about safety.
2). How we can easily be recommended the incorrect shoe and why it’s up to you to determine what is right for you.
3). Why it’s important to make sure your shoes have enough width to fit you foot when you move because your foot will flatten and having enough space for it to spread out is so important.
4). Meredith’s advice on when it is a good time to decide to replace your old shoes.
5). Making sure to choose the right option when it comes to securing the shoe and the differences between laces, velcro straps or other means.
