Footwear Series: What Makes A Good Shoe?

Join us on our footwear series as we teach you how to choose what shoes are right for you!

This video focuses on the features that make up a GOOD shoe! By using three simple tests, you can walk into any shoe store and determine if the shoe might be supportive for you.

The features of a good shoe include things like:

  • Enough depth and ‘wiggle room’ in the toe box
  • Flexion of the shoe where your toes naturally flex
  • Support through the mid-foot and heel counter
  • Arch support, or a removable inner-sole
  • Good fixation (laces, velcro, etc)

In this series, we will also show you a video of features to ‘avoid’ when looking for good footwear, whether its for work or for recreation- so keep your eye out for that one!
