Measure your Feet for Correct Shoe Size.

You can’t remember the last time you got your feet measured. Feet change over time, with age, some ligaments and tendons become a little bit looser, and gravity and body weight reshape the feet so they can become wider and stretch out. Significant weight fluctuations, like gaining weight during pregnancy, can change your shoe size, too. So can having bunions or hammertoes, or having a condition like rheumatoid arthritis that can cause joints to swell. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes may also lead to changes in foot size or shape due to nerve damage, which can result in other symptoms like tingling, pain, and numbness, too.

You’ll probably notice if your trusty 8.5 no longer fits anymore, but even if you’re just feeling some discomfort lately, it’s worth getting your feet measured in-person at a shoe store when you can, or try to do it yourself online.
