We need to ensure that every day spent on our workplace can be a productive and safe one.

We need to consider the importance of how our footwear fits us, since they are one of the most crucial (if not the most) of our everyday wear, the key of having of good posture, and, therefore, not having any pain in our feet, toes, knees, and/or our back.
The Human Foot Structure
Did you know the human foot contains one-quarter of the bones found in our body? And that’s not it, it also contains about 33 joints, 19 muscles, 10 tendons and 107 ligaments. The foot provides several different functions, making it extremely important that it is properly supported.
By having the proper amount of space around the toes, ensuring that the heel is secure and stable, and providing proper support to the arch of the foot, you can minimize any pain or fatigue, as well as improving your posture and minimizing low back pain.
Side Effects from Improper Fit
Improper shoe fit can lead to serious side effects such as stress fractures, fatigue, tingling, back pain, numbness and many more, causing not only the structure of the foot to be compromised but also the health of our whole body.
When the foot is not properly supported, it can increase the risk of slipping, tripping or falling. It can also lead to additional foot pain, inflammation and misalignment of the bones in the feet, and even serious injuries if safety shoes are not adequately fitted.
What’s the best way of fighting this?
Are you looking for your next pair of Proxon Safety Shoes? We recommend you to be on the lookout for these next, really important points. Be sure to wear the type of socks you would typically wear on the job since they can directly impact on the fitting process:
1. Measure both feet to see if there are any variances in foot structure and length. By establishing the variances in your foot size, you can really know which size is better to both of your feet, ensuring a better comfort overall.
2. High, low, or no arch? Arch structure varies from person to person, making the support requirements to vary all the time. Proper support reduces foot pain and increases comfort as it allows for pressure to be properly distributed.
3. Consider all your daily activities at work. Not only your job role is important, but the physical activities you engage in while being on the job, such as standing for long periods, lifting or walking. This will help determine the type of support and cushioning you need.
4. How much does your feet swell throughout the day? Feet usually swell between morning and afternoon, so by ensuring you have the right amount of room to accommodate this change, you’ll be able to achieve comfort throughout the day.
