If you have ever dealt with foot problems, such as recurring heel pain, arch pain, or pain in the ball of your foot, you know the difficulty of finding comfortable footwear. Corns, Calluses, Bunions, Heel Spurs, Plantar Fasciitis and other foot problems can result in you having one foot that is slightly wider or longer than the other. Do you go up a size, buy a wider size or think about getting inserts, insoles or orthotics to correct these issues?
According to a study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research1, between 63 and 72 percent of people are wearing the wrong size shoe. Either the length of the shoe is too short, or the width is too narrow to comfortably accommodate your actual foot size. Are you one of the unlucky ones wearing ill-fitting and uncomfortable shoes?
With so many shoe options to choose from, it’s hard to decide what is the best choice for you and your feet. Many retail shoe stores, like COBBLER"S RACK offer a variety of fitting services and take the time to find the best shoes for your unique feet. One of these specialty-fit services is Aetrex‘s Albert 3D foot scan.
Aetrex’s Albert technology provides a complete 3D scan of your feet that lets you dial in the fit and comfort of your shoes. Family Footwear Center’s highly trained sales associate will perform the scan, providing you with a comprehensive foot analysis that includes recommendations for Aetrex Inserts and orthotics.
