Padders

Fit of Padders footwear

When you walk, your feet lengthen so it is important that there is a gap of around ½ inch (approximately the thickness of a finger tip) between the end of the shoe and the end of your longest toe when you are standing up.

You should have enough room and depth in the front of the shoes so that you can move your toes easily without rubbing them on the upper. The most comfortable shoes are foot-shaped; shoes that are pointed can squeeze and squash toes. The footwear needs to be wide enough to accommodate your feet so that your joints and toes do not hang over the sides of the shoe or sandal.


Desirable features

Adjustable fastenings help keep you comfortable by preventing your feet slipping around in footwear. Friction from slipping can make your feet sore and hot and may cause calluses. Touch & Close fastenings are easy to adjust during the day if your feet swell especially in warm weather. Extension straps are very useful to give extra comfort. Feet sometimes get stiff due to injury or arthritis. This makes it difficult for them to bend when putting on footwear. Choosing shoes with a low, deep opening allows easy access for stiff feet and a generous number of eyelets found on this type of shoe allows you to personalise your fit using the lacing options for extra comfort.

If your toes aren't perfectly straight or have thickened joints, choose footwear without seams over the prominent areas. The unique qualities of the soft leather, such as that used by Padders for their footwear, means the uppers will mould to the shape of your feet, unfortunately stitching and seams wont.

Cushioned soles and broad heels will help you walk comfortably all day. This is especially important when we reach mature years as our feet may show signs of the energetic life we've led. Wear and tear on the joints may cause arthritis and the muscles can loose elasticity so wearing shoes with cushioned soles and support in the arches help keep your feet comfortable, especially when walking on uneven or hard surfaces.
