Your quest for the perfect gift may take you all over town. It may mean hours on your feet; and, given your shoes aren’t comfortable, you may find it quite difficult to keep that holiday spirit going.
We always say, if the shoe doesn’t fit, don’t buy it. Shoes that don’t fit perfectly may pinch and rub your skin raw or just plain hurt. Some of these discomforts can be remedied with a stretch or a footwear modification. However, in extreme cases, an improperly fitting shoe can cause all sorts of foot problems including bunions, corns, calluses, heel spurs, and even plantar fasciitis. And to make matters worse, when your shoes don’t give you enough support, you may end up feeling tired and achy long before you’ve finished your holiday shopping list.
So, before you decide to shop till you drop, start your holiday shopping with a visit to Foot Solutions for shoes and inserts that will keep you moving no matter what the world throws at you. And, while our staff is making sure everything you choose fits exactly right, don’t forget to check out all the excellent gift possibilities we have in store, including slippers, high performance socks, lotions and our “perfect fit” gift certificates.
