If the Shoe Fits

Diversity Woman—December 10, 2017

In a Diversity Woman article, HSS sports performance specialist Tiffany Chag, MS, RD, CSCS offered advice for purchasing new walking and hiking shoes.

Chag recommended going to a reputable store where staff members know about foot mechanics and will measure and assess your foot and gait.

For hiking shoes, Chag advised having extra room at the toe of the boot. "As you descend a trail, your foot slides forward in the shoe, and if your toes are constantly bumping up against the front of the shoe, you can kiss your toenails good-bye."

To prevent this issue, she suggested testing the shoes by walking up and down a ramp.
