Shopping for athletic shoes? The American Podiatric Medical Association recommends you:
_ Stand when having your feet measured.
_ Try on both shoes and walk or jog around the store.
_ Avoid shoes that are not comfortable.
_ Go shopping later in the day because feet tend to swell during the day.
_ Be sure that the widest part of your foot corresponds to the widest part of your shoe.
_ Try on shoes while you're wearing the same kind of socks you expect to wear with the shoes.
_ If you wear prescription orthotics you should take them along to shoe fittings.
