  • Proper Stability & Balance

The heels of the footwear should ways have proper support that would offer better stability & balance to you while standing, walking, running, etc., and prevent misbalance or falls during movements. 

  • Breathability & Room

The most important aspect of comfortable footwear always includes having enough space for the feet from the sides, top, and bottom, for comfortability. In fact, it is always suggested to have 1cm room for feet & you should invest in a pair that is slightly longer than the longest toe. 

  • Proper Condition

While a majority of the people tend to buy a new pair of shoes once the older ones have worn out. Yet, one must observe the footwear & replace them once it has been used enough and has lost some of its basic functions. Continuing in worn-out shoes can lead to injuries and impact the legs & joints of the body.
