Wondering if a pair of shoes are too tight? Try the “toe test”? Wiggle your toes when they’re in your shoes. If you can’t freely wiggle them, your shoes are too tight around the toes. This may cut off your circulation in your toes, and by the end of the day (or night) your feet may go numb. What’s more tight shoes can lead to not only bunions but ingrown toenails, which means not-so-pretty feet!
And even if the Christian Louboutin you love so much have gone on sale, and the only size left is 1/2 smaller than your shoe size, DON"T do it! The strain on your back as well as your feet will thank you for it in the morning!
