SHOE BREAK-IN PERIOD
Your shoes should become a functioning part of your pedorthic care; following these simple instructions will ensure that they are that.
1 - When you get home with your new shoes, if they are not already in them, place your inserts in the shoes. While wearing socks, put your shoes on and wear them on carpeting for about 30 to 60 minutes.
2 - Remove your socks and shoes and scan your foot for any areas of redness to indicate the shoe may be rubbing your skin.
3 - Once you’ve made sure the shoes aren’t rubbing your skin (by seeing no sign of redness), you can wear them around the house for a day or two, checking for areas of redness each time you take them off.
4 - Once you’ve made sure you’re not having any issues with the shoes, you can wear them outside the house.
5 - Remember, even after this break-in period, you should always check your feet and shoes every day for anything that looks out of the ordinary.
