Does choice in footwear really lead to foot pain, deformities and injuries ?
The short answer to this recurring question is absolutely. Let us show you the evidence In a 2018 systematic review which yeilded 1681 citations 18 articles between 50-440 participants resulted the following: 63 and 72% of participants were wearing shoes that did not accommodate either width or length dimensions of their feet.
There was also evidence that incorrect footwear fitting was associated with foot pain and foot disorders such as lesser toe deformity, bunions, corns and calluses This is the same for athletic footwear.
