My Shoe Size Is What?

There are many changes that take place within our feet as we age.

It isn’t a figment of your imagination that you don’t fit into the same shoe size you once did, or that your feet have taken on a different appearance over time. There are several natural changes in foot structure and function that occur as we age. 

One of the most common (and most frustrating) is a change in foot size. Maybe you have noticed that fewer and fewer of the collection of shoes in your closet are feeling like they did when you first bought them, or maybe you just notice that your feet look different then they did ten years ago. You can thank the gradual loss of elasticity of the tendons and ligaments that provide support to the foot.  As these tissues become looser, you may notice fallen arches or an over all increase in the length of your foot. The average person can expect an increase in by a half a shoe size.

So if you just aren’t fitting into your old ‘go to’ pair of shoes, it might be time to get re-measured for a new pair of kicks.
