Don’t be a fashion victim, learn how your shoes affect your health today.

When it comes to buying new shoes, many of us prioritize how they look over how they feel. Oftentimes, we tend to disregard it if the shoes feel a little too tight here or are a little too high there as long as they make us look good.

However, research has shown that our choice of daily footwear can have a significant impact on our health. In fact, 90% of foot deformities in women alone can be attributed to poorly-designed or ill-fitting shoes.

Our feet are the foundation of the body; therefore, it follows that any problems affecting them will also impact your overall health. Bad shoes have been tied to a range of health issues including back problems, impaired balance and joint pain.
