When was the last time you measured your feet?
Foot shape and size can change in small but meaningful ways throughout adulthood. Lots of research have been put through in a couple of decades which reveals men’s average shoe size has increased from UK 8 D to UK 9 E where D is the standard width and E being wide width. So if you are buying a pair of shoes online referencing your feet measurement you got decade back, it's time for you to re-measure your feet as the size probably has changed.
Do you know that 60% of the population has Non-Standard feet sizes? In multiple surveys, more than half of the women and one-third of the men agreed on buying shoes online that don't fit them. Also please be aware, your feet measurements vary throughout the day and it is the maximum during the evening, therefore if you have bought the shoes anything but the evening, the shoe probably is a misfit.
These are the following pointers on why feet measurements are important.
Are your shoes hurting and pinching toes or causing calluses?
Do you feel pain in your feet if you wear your shoes for long hours?
Do you have blisters or corns on your feet or recently developed?
Do you suffer from mild or chronic pain in your toe, ankle, or back?
If the answer to any above question is "Yes", maximum chances are you have a "Shoe Size Misfit". One thing you should know if this being the case, "The problem isn't you, it's your SHOES."
Amongst the 50% of the population who measure their feet the first time, a major chunk happens to realize that they have one foot bigger than the other or one foot wider than the other. These feet measurement actually help them diagnose why one particular foot always have more problems. To explain further, Let's assume, your right foot size is UK 8 extra-wide while your left foot size is UK 9 standard and if you happen to buy a UK size 8 standard, then your left foot toe fingers tips will pain because you are wearing a shoe of shorter length and your right foot toe joint will pain because you are wearing too narrow shoes for an extra-wide foot, and if you choose a UK size 9 standard, then your right foot toe bones still will pain as you are wearing a shoe with a lesser width. The persistent wearing of above will exaggerate your concerns by causing acute problems like feet deformities, hammertoes, blisters, corns, and even severe back pain.
