Andrew Lock Shoes: What Are They?
According to Wikipedia, the shoe industry is worth $25 billion dollars annually. There are around 500 million pairs of shoes produced every year worldwide. The average person wears about 3 pairs of shoes per day! That means there are 300 million pairs of shoes worn daily in the world!
Shoes are a multi-billion dollar industry.
What do you think accounts for this great demand? Why are shoes so popular?
If you said “fashion” you’d be right. But there’s another factor: people wear shoes because their feet get tender without them. In fact, the very word “shoe” is a linguistic contraction of “something used for soothing.”
Shoes cushion, protect, and enhance your experience of the world… unless they don’t! Some shoes are better than others.
After all, you wouldn’t want to wear a high-heeled pump while hiking a mountain trail!
What Makes a Good Shoe?
When it comes to buying a shoe there is one overriding quality you should prioritize above all else: comfort. We tend to blame our feet for any discomfort we experience while wearing shoes but the reality is that improperly fitted shoes are the primary culprit!
When you shop for a shoe you should always try to find the one that fits best. A shoe that is too small will cause pain, blisters, and swelling. A shoe that is too big can lead to excessive foot movement within the shoe, which can also cause problems.
When trying on shoes look for one that feels snug (but not tight!) around your foot and toes but doesn’t squeeze your feet or cause any pain.
