Prevention of Foot Disease

Shoes with enough space
your toes need some room to move. Also, it is better to try on shoes in the afternoon.

Avoid High-heels
Try to avoid high heel shoes as much as possible and get into comfortable shoes. When wearing high heel shoes, wear ones that are 3cm high or less.

Avoid intense exercises.
Try to increase the intensity gradually over time.

Stretch your feet
If your job requires you to stand for a long time, stretch your feet every hour to relax soles and calf muscles.

Proper Insoles
When jogging or running a marathon, wear insoles that can support your feet and absorb shock. Avoid running on  a hard surface.
