www.sofootankle.com I talk a lot about shoes with my patients. Being a runner myself, I try different shoes, and I try to educate my patients more on what proper shoes they should be wearing. A lot of times, there can be certain foot problems a person can have by wearing too tight of shoes, like a bunion or the hammer toe that can be rubbed from a tight shoe. Sometimes an ingrown toenail can happened due to a tight shoe. There are various things that can happen because of ill-fitting shoes. What I talk to patients about is the proper shoes to wear. I also have a recommended shoe list that I give to people so they can go to the store with a reference to look at so they can pick the right kind of shoes for their problem.
