Why Do You Need to Re-measure Your Feet?

Why Do You Need to Re-measure Your Feet?

In the world of ill-fitting shoes, there are two hemispheres, too small and too big. As we all know, if you wear a shoe that is too tight, it will hurt your feet and lead to foot ailments, such as blisters, bunions, and calluses. But wearing a shoe that is too big will cause you to walk in an unnatural and dysfunctional way, even allowing your feet to slip and slide while you walk. These can lead to serious foot problems. 

Finding footwear that fits comfortably is essential. 

When seeking guidance online, most sites were likely to tell you to wear one size up, so those shoes allow extra room for your feet. However, this isn't necessarily an example to follow. Footwear that fits you will provide an optimal platform for your feet. Remember, in body balance, your feet support the weight of your body as you walk and stand. 

It's always been a good idea to re-measure your feet before buying shoes online or offline. 

There are two main reasons why you should do a re-measurement:

  1. First, Do not rely on your last foot measurement. Ligaments, the tissue that attaches bone to bone, tend to relax and stretch as you grow older. This causes your feet to change shape and size over time.
  2. Do not assume that a size in one brand is equivalent to the same size in another. Sizes vary greatly between manufacturers, so be sure you do a complete measurement as suggested by your favorite footwear brand.

FUT does not provide shoe size charts as other brands do. We offer another experience in measuring your feet through site Find Your Size. Not only do length and width that needed to be measured, but FUT also recommends you measure 5 key points which are :

  1. Width
  2. Length
  3. Ball Girth
  4. Width Thickness
  5. Instep Thickness.

FUT FACT: Do you know what best time to measure your feet? Yes, it's in the evening. Your feet tend to expand throughout the day and swell in hot weather.
