Most of us are likely to walk the equivalent of three times around the world in our lifetime. This makes our feet one of the hardest working parts of our bodies. Staff at The Athlete’s Foot appreciate the toll put on your feet and strive to treat them to the comfort and support they deserve. Correct ﬁtting footwear can alleviate pre-existing pain or discomfort and can also prevent problems before they arise.
The highly trained staff at The Athlete’s Foot specialise in ﬁtting shoes for all feet, including those of us who suffer from foot ailments or systematic illnesses such as
diabetes, heart disease or arthritis. Correctly ﬁ tted shoes can help relieve pain, irritation and discomfort.
All Feet Deserve Comfort
A common misconception is that sore feet are normal; they are not. Many common foot problems, such as corns, calluses and bunions, can be caused or exacerbated by poorly ﬁtting footwear. Even lower back pain and headaches can be attributed to your feet. That’s where The Athlete’s Foot “Fit Technicians” come in; we are expertly trained in the art of ﬁ tting shoes. Using the exclusive Fitprint® system we can assess your individual foot type against your footwear requirements and then recommend a range of shoes that will provide you with the comfort and support you need.
Seek Professional Help
If you have foot pain, injury, odour, misshapen toes or often trip and fall, it might be time you visited a specialist. Don’t put up with unnecessary pain, visit The Athlete’s Foot where we can refer you to a Podiatrist or medical specialist in your area.
Various Widths & Sizes
Finding shoes which cater for very narrow or very long feet can be difficult but that is no excuse for poorly fitting shoes. The Athlete’s Foot carries a range of shoes in up to six different widths and a full range of sizes. So no matter what your foot shape, we have a shoe for you.
If you wear orthotics, The Athlete’s Foot have a range of shoes with extra depth to accommodate your needs. Make sure you bring your orthotic with you to get the best fit.
For those with diabetes, bunions or other problems, seams can cause pain and injuries. The Athlete’s Foot carries shoes with seamless uppers to reduce the risk of irritation.
For those who prefer a lightweight shoe, which is often the case as we get older, The Athlete’s Foot has a number of models available from smart casual through to running shoes.
Shoes with velcro closures are easier to get on and off for those with injuries or arthritis and can reduce the pressure laces may put on the top of your feet. The Athlete’s Foot has sports shoes, walking shoes and casual shoes available with velcro closures.
