Are you sitting at the office? How about in the locker room before the game?

Go ahead. Wiggle your toes and answer the questions below. At Clark Podiatry Center, we want to keep you walking — with support and comfort. When footwear no longer meets those requirements, you are at risk for corns, calluses, bunions, and blisters. If you can no longer wiggle your toes in your shoes, it’s time for a trip to the podiatrist and to the shoe store.

Are your toes rubbing against your shoes or socks?

Friction is not your friend when it comes to your shoes. With each step that you take, increased friction and pressure on your feet and toes can only lead to pain and discomfort. Some of the results include corns, calluses, bunions, or blisters. If you have diabetes and a condition known as neuropathy, this is even more dangerous and can further irritate cuts and bruises. Neuropathy is nerve damage; many times patients don’t feel that their shoes are too tight or that corns or wounds are becoming irritated.

Are you relieved to free your feet from your shoes?

Whether it’s for a specific event, or for your 9-to-5 commitments, you shouldn’t be counting down the hours until you can remove your shoes. Your feet should not hurt. If you’re in pain, it’s time to visit a podiatrist. You may need to rethink your footwear or there may be other conditions that are causing discomfort.
 

Do your shoes leave marks on your socks or skin?

Seeing is believing for this question. If you have marks on your skin, stop wearing those shoes immediately.

Are you concerned about leaving enough wiggle room in your shoes? Make an appointment with Clark Podiatry Center by calling 732-382-3470. Our board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Brandon A. Macy, can provide guidance on next steps to help you walk without pain and discomfort. Don’t forget that New Jersey’s Children’s Foot Health Institute is a part of the Clark Podiatry Center. Visit us at our Clark, New Jersey office.
