Are You 100% Sure of Your Foot Size? – Let’s Find Out!

Did you know that just because you have worn a certain size for most of your life that doesn’t mean that your foot size has not changed. Did you know that as we age the body’s ligaments and tendons lose their strength and ability to spring back? This means that our arches decrease, which flattens and lengthens the foot and toes. This often results in an increase in shoe size by a half-size or more.

In addition, do you know whether you have narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet? Do you know whether you have a high arch or a high instep? I help women determine their exact foot shape in a different article I wrote called:
