It’s important to know about the many benefits of a well-fitting shoe as well. Such benefits may include:

Cushions the Foot

The midsole of the shoe is the key component that gives cushioning. Shoes do not reduce the force that goes through the body. But they increase the time needed to exert the force, so the body has time to adjust.

Supports the Foot

Wearing the right shoe can help your foot balance as it hits the ground.


The right shoe provides you with immediate comfort from the first time you try it on.

Fits Well

Ensure that you have at least 1 - 1.5cm at the end of the foot. It should be wide and long enough to fit properly. It should feel snug but not tight.
