Cor­rect fit­ting means feet have warm win­ter

Matamata Chronicle - - Winter Warmth -

With win­ter just around the cor­ner, it’s im­por­tant to make sure your feet are warm and cosy – but why is it so vi­tal to have cor­rect shaped and fit­ted shoes?

Ev­ery­body’s feet are unique and have dif­fer­ent needs for dif­fer­ent shaped feet.

In­cor­rect fit­ting shoes can lead to prob­lems later in life.

Why is it im­por­tant to fit the foot to the shoe and not the shoe to the foot?

You need the right width, depth and length in ev­ery shoe.

Why is it im­por­tant to keep your feet warm in win­ter?

Lin­ings in the win­ter favourite – a pair of boots – are de­signed for warmth.

At Strider you don’t need to com­pro­mise fash­ion or style for com­fort and they stock sizes 36-43 (Euro­pean).

Why leather shoes over syn­thetic shoes?

Leather breathes, soft­ens and moulds to your foot. A leather shoe is durable and will out­last a syn­thetic shoe.

All Strider staff are ex­pe­ri­enced shoe fit­ters, Patsy has been work­ing with shoes for 40 years, Dawn for more than 20 years, Robin for 16 years and Sanne is in train­ing.

So call in and see the friendly staff at Strider to­day.
