Healthy Happy Feet

Most of us spend a lot of time to feel good and look good, but most of the time we forgot about our feet. This article will help you to know how to take care your feet just know the basics.

The important of arch
The curved area on the inside of each foot between the ball and the heel is most solely responsible for supporting your body weight-and then some. Arches range from pancake flat to sky-high. Wearing the wrong shoes for yours can be a big reason why certain pairs feel like a dream and others a nightmare.

If your arch is high...
you have rigid and inflexible feet. When you walk, you're likely to land on the outsides of your feet without rolling inward. If you pick up a wrong shoes it may lead to plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, and knee problems.
Shoe rules:
You need neutral-cushioned shoes. Look for curved C-shaped soles and squeeze the heel areas-your ideal shoes should feel stiff not mushy like the back of a ballet shoe. Avoid very flat shoes, and look for cushioning under the balls of the feet and a small heel lift.

If your arch is normal...
your feet will feel comfy with shoes that provide some arch support.
Shoe rules: Look for semi-curved soles, and stick with the types of shoes that have been comfortable for you in the past. Avoid extremes: Skip superhigh heels, ballet-style flats, and any shoes you can either roll up in a ball or not bend at all.

If your arch is low...
you have very flexible feet that are likely to roll inward, or overpronate, when you walk. You probably wear out your shoes on the area closest to the insides of your feet.
Shoe rules: You need shoes that offer good arch support to prevent any rolling; steer clear of pairs that are superflexible.
