Questions and Answers

Q: Is there any "quick check" you can do in the store to make sure new athletic shoes fit correctly?

When buying sport or athletic shoes, try the "pinch test". If you can pinch some of the shoe's top material, from the area between the laces and the side, there's probably enough space between your foot and the side of the shoe. You're wise to be careful when investing in pricey athletic shoes. Poorly fitting shoes are a major source of foot problems.
