Whether you are new to Black Friday shopping or you are a seasoned pro we have some tips to help you stay safe and keep your feet protected too!
1. Wear comfortable shoes: It might be tempting to throw on your favorite heels or ballet flats, but think about comfort over style for this shopping trip. You are going to be walking fast and all over the place. You don’t want your shoes to slow you down or cause injuries such as blisters, and sprained ankles. If you are looking for some stylish and supportive shoe options check out our Pinterest board dedicated to shoes.
2. Wear your custom orthotics: If you have orthotics made specifically for you, wear them! They will give your feet the support they need and will help your feet last longer as you walk from store to store.
3. Stay hydrated: Make sure to bring water along on this shopping trip. Shopping can be exhausting and you don’t want to lose steam while you are finding the perfect deals. Also, pack some healthy snacks (granola bars, apples, baby carrots etc…) as well so you can eat while you shop.
4. Shop online: Instead of spending the whole day running around wearing out your feet, opt for some online shopping as well. There are plenty of great deals online where your can put your feet up for some rest.
