Proper Shoe Size

by Berkeley Wellness  

Make sure your shoes are big enough. About one out of four adults wears the wrong-size shoes.

Feet grow longer and wider with every passing decade, especially if you gain weight, so your shoe size at age 60 will almost certainly be larger than it was at 40.

With age, your feet lose padding, flatten and are more susceptible to problems that can be worsened by too-tight shoes.
