Before I started embarking in my journey about my feet issue, I didn't really realised that I have been buying shoes for all the wrong reasons.
The wrong reasons:
- It's trendy and currently fashionable. Everyone is wearing them..so must I.
- It's on sale and cheap.
- It looked sexy and good when I wear them.
- It matched the colour of my outfit.
- Buying an ill appropriate size because it is REALLY nice and it is the last one left.
I guess may of us have fallen into the usual habit, without considering the fitting or comfort of the shoe. I know I have even bought some shoes and left them untouched for more than a year, all because it was on sale. It is the biggest culprit among the other wrong reasons, where we may have bought something which we didn't really need in the first place. Style is often the key to consideration, but it cannot be the only factor.
Coupled with the wrong reasons, I didn't have much idea or knowledge on choosing the fight fit in the right way. I am only armed with the basic since adolescent, which is ensuring that there are at least 1/2 inch space at the toe space and that it is not tight when worn. Little that I realised, I am doing more damage than good to my feet in the long run.
