Choosing the right
comfortable pair of shoes is very important if you spend much
time on your feet. Whether you’re standing, walking or running,
all of your weight falls directly onto the bottom of your feet.
That’s why the shoes you wear are critical to the long term
comfort and health of your feet and ankles.
Whether you’re wearing sandals, boots or running shoes it’s crucial that
your feet are supported and comfortable. Shoes with support and
shock absorption will help reduce pounding on the rest of your
body as you walk or run.
In prehistoric times skins or hides were probably tied around the foot for
protection and warmth. The sandal, probably the earliest form of
shoe, was worn in Egypt, Greece, and Rome; an early form of the
boot was also known in Greece and Rome. The characteristic shoe
of the Middle Ages was the soft, clinging moccasin, which
extended to the ankle. It was highly decorated and was of
velvet, cloth of gold, and, increasingly, of leather. Today the
choices of shoes are great…wonderful styles and comfort.
