If you wonder why your feet are pain full or hurt we have real answers.


1.   There are several inherited or genic factors that cannot be changed; however create a good environment (  if you have someone to guide you into the correct footwear and support ) that is critical. Almost everyone that has problems and there are about 23 different problems “all would be better if we wore correctly fitting supportive shoes”. Trying to explain all the different issues is impossible, size is only a small part of why it is so complicated. A while back I had a client that purchased 3 different shoes all of them fit great, but the sizes were 10.5, 12 and a 13. I will admit that it is rare to have that much difference in size, of course they can also require different widths as well. Actual differences in shoes include Style, Shape “meaning last”, Depth, Sole, Upper, Width, Structure and Support.


2.   The second factor that is very important to how your feet feel is what your activities do, including workplace (how much of your work day do you stand or walk) athletic activities (walking running competitive sports including professional). Many problems can be created from inadequate footwear.  Here is a short list of the most popular: Plantar Fasciitis, Turf Toe, Pronation (Flat Feet), Supination, Spurs, Morton Syndrome and Metatarsal Pain (the ball of your feet hurting).


3.   Solutions are quite simple.  The open-minded person can understand the complexity of the problem and dedicated to making the right choices. If you are a woman that fashion is important, please understand when possible wear basic supportive footwear to protect your fashion future. I have an 85% 15% rule. Wear good fitting functional footwear 85% the look shoes 15%. Over the years most shoes are promoted by price and style, that is what I believe leads to disaster for feet today. The most important factor is fit and comfort, remember your feet! You only get 1 pair.

Feet and Footwear how they Affect Life Print E-mail
All feet are different, even your left and right are always different. The reasons are many. I will cover the most common ones. Many of the reasons are from genetics, which include prenatal positioning, flexibility, basic shape, arch height and many other factors to complicated to mention; however, the shoes that they grow up in and wear during their life span will be the most determining factor, along with the correct support that will determine the positive or negative factors in ambulation.

For growing children, I have found that if the feet are fit correctly (meaning shape is correct and controlled in the heel and waist of the foot) they will have the best opportunity to develop correctly. Some children’s feet are so flexible that support will be needed to control them so their foot development will have possibility for improvement. In some cases of extreme flexibility, continued soft, but controlling support will give them the best chance for improvement. It is imperative that the support will control both the medial and lateral movement of the feet. The feet respond to shoes and correct environment very similar to personal development of correct environment in education as well as family life. Bottom line…children need to wear correctly shaped shoes, along with support, properly fit and laced shoes for 90% of the time. In the past twenty or so years I have seen parents letting young children and teenagers wear lace-up and athletic footwear never correctly tying the shoes. This habit is contributing to underdevelopment of their feet, just like slip-on footwear. Keep in mind that children’s feet are always growing, so it doesn’t matter how a slip-on pair fits, it won’t support or fit correctly for any long period of time. During a child’s first years (1 till 5) most will need to be fitted with approx 3 pairs of new shoes annually. It is imperative to find a store with knowledge and adequate footwear to give them the best chance to eliminate early problems.

How shoes are designed, fitted and supported affect performance in athletics. Please keep in mind our feet and ability to achieve almost any athletic activity will be determined with speed, change of direction, ability to jump and affect the stress on joints and muscles. Jensen Shoes is currently serving many athletes, including: professional, college, high school, grade school athletes and of course adults, with Custom Molded Orthotics. The most common problems for active adults including Athletes are Pronation both mild and severe, Plantar Fasciitis, Metarsalgia, Heel spurs, Bunions and Hammer toes. We have been able to improve most of these conditions through the application of proper Orthotics and adequate footwear, provided compliance is followed.
