During the crazy shopping days of the holiday season, the long amounts of time spent walking and waiting on lines can take a toll on the feet.
Dr. Steve Rosenberg, CEO/President of Foot Products Enterprises Inc., has provided the Huffington Post with a few pointers to think about while caring for your feet when shopping.
Dr. Rosenberg says that it’s imperative to wear shoes that match the kind of arches you have to minimize possible pain. He suggests insoles as an addition if your feet are still hurting. Finally, Dr. Rosenberg advises that when shoppers return home for the day they change into comfortable footwear or soak their feet.

Every Day Foot Care
Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. After all, without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks. It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before, for example.
For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops.
Also, wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat. Also make sure that the socks fit properly and are not uncomfortably tight.
