How to find great fitting shoes or boots-from Naturalizer!

Our feet endure continuous neglect - with average person walking between 8,000 and 10,000 steps. With 7,000 nerve endings in your feet, this pressure directly affects the rest of your body. Naturalizer understands the important of comfort and fit and has the following tips to share when shoe/boot shopping:

1.              15 minutes of…comfort: When selecting a pair of shoes, you should be able to walk for at least 15 minutes without discomfort or pressure to any part of the feet. Even if you live in heels, you should be able to feel balanced and stable enough so that you are not carrying all of your body weight on the balls of your feet. Balance ensures that your core is stable and energy circulation can flow easily.  Stability promotes stress relief and improved posture.
2.              Breathe easy: Every woman knows how annoying sweaty, sliding feet can be… and when your feet can’t breathe, your energy can’t flow. Find shoes with a breathable lining. By keeping your feet cool, and comfortable, you can relieve and prevent energy blockages in the feet.

3.              Lighten up and embrace the softer side: Hard, clunky shoes are more than just ugly; they can affect your circulation. The lighter the weight and the softer the cushioning, the less pressure on your feet which means better circulation.

4.              The 2010 shoe mantra – NO BREAKING IN: Flexibility means no “breaking-in” period. Supportive, lightweight shoes lessen the impact of gravity, which can wreak havoc on your feet and your entire body. Buy shoes that feel good straight out of the box. 

Check out the wide shaft boot offerings at Naturalizer – seeing that no one likes to spend time squeezing their jeans in their boots or the hassle of getting them altered.
