Preventing Foot-Care Problems

To protect feet, observe the following:
  • Wear leisure shoes when walking on rough grounds to lessen the chance of corns and calluses.
  • Wear flexible-soled shoes with wide, rounded toes and low heels when walking long distances. It is said that the heel of a shoe should not be more than two inches high because higher heels tend to jam the toes to the front of the shoe.
  • Wear socks with tennis shoes to absorb perspiration and protect feet from blistering caused by irregularities in the shoe's lining.
  • Wear elastic stockings and elevate the feet each day for about an hour, if your feet tend to swell.
