Many people have trouble finding shoes wide enough to fit their feet. Stuffing your feet into shoes that are too narrow can cause numerous problems that include bunions, calluses, hammertoe, and crossover toe, when one toe sits on top of another because they are squeezed too tightly inside the shoe. Thankfully, there are a few things that can help people with wider feet. When shopping, ask if wide sizes are available. Wear the type of sock or foot covering you would be using for that particular shoe. Your toes should not feel cramped, and there should be some space between the tip of the shoe and your toes. If one foot is longer than the other, purchase the size to fit the larger foot. If you are experiencing pain in your feet, it is a good idea to see a podiatrist who can help you determine the cause and offer guidance about footwear.
