Why You Should Measure Your Feet
Picture the scenario: you normally wear a size 5 shoe but decided to purchase a pretty pair of shoes in the lower size because it was the last pair available. At first, you may notice a slight discomfort. Yet over time, you experience more prominent aches, pains and conditions that could have otherwise been avoided if it weren’t for the wrong size shoe. This problem is more common than you think – except instead of shoe length, it is attributed to shoe width.
Measuring the width of your feet is often overlooked, and yet is essential to help prevent potentially painful foot conditions from developing. Knowing the exact dimensions of your feet will help to mitigate wearing the wrong size shoes. However with fast fashion available 24/7, it’s all too easy to impulse purchase cheap, non-supportive shoes that cause health problems over longer periods of time and lack the adequate support for your feet.
Uufey shoes are equipped with all the necessary tools to make your feet feel as comfortable as possible. This includes arch support, removable insoles, orthotic footbeds and wide fit sizing. Wide fit sizing is especially important to allow the feet to breathe with an ergonomic shoe shape for full freedom of movement.
An amalgamation of both style and comfort, Uufey shoes are great for anyone suffering from plantar fasciitis, sensitive feet and flat feet. These benefits allow for someone to lead a more proactive and comfortable lifestyle.
How Do I Measure My Foot Width?
If you are suffering from foot problems we always advise that you seek professional shoe fitting and advice to ensure correct fitting footwear. However we appreciate that this is not always possible so here is a way to measure your feet at home to help you get the right size.
We use the ‘DB Shoe’ measurement system to help us gauge the correct size and width for you. Click here to view the guide.
Note: If you have narrow feet, we would always advise downsizing when purchasing a pair of Uufey Shoes. This is due to arch pain being more common in those with narrow feet, and wearing a wider fit may only serve to cause more discomfort.
