Safe & Happy Feet

Tina Aldatz, certified pedorthist and creator of Foot Petals (, has some great tips and tricks for women as we say goodbye to our flip flops and flats and get ready for fall boots and heels!

Tina suggests that you always keep in mind the following:

Proper fit is key
~ Shoes should not gap around the top edges
Try adding Foot Petals Killer Kushionz to help keep the foot in place and absorb shock

~ Heels should fit snugly and not slip or slide freely inside the shoe
Foot Petals Haute Heelz and Heavenly Heelz will keep feet fitting properly in shoes (great for platforms) and also help prevent blisters

~ The ball of the foot should fit into the widest part of the shoe
Foot Petals Tip Toes will cushion the ball of foot and stop feet from sliding forward

~ It is better to go up a size and add cushioning than to squeeze your foot into a too small shoe

~ Doubling up on Foot Petals products help to fill the gaps and offer exceptional comfort

Dangers of improper fit
~ Tight fit around toes
Can lead to calluses, corns and eventually bunions

~ Loose fitting heels
Can lead to blisters on skin
Can cause instability when walking and cause ankle injury (especially in platforms and high heeled boots – just ask our intern!)
