The shoe is the most important piece of clothing
Walking barefoot on natural ground is healthy. Feet and body are active. However, today's solid "foot-irritation-free" civilisation floors, in combination with unsuitable footwear, are a great strain, with negative effects on the body. Impact and compression stress caused by placing the feet on hard floors is poison to the spine and joints. Complaints arise or are intensified.
Characteristics of shoes such as too hard, too tight, too wide, too long or too high heels lead to additional problems such as tendon shortening, sore feet, blisters, pressure pain, deformation and skin diseases.
Only about 50% of adults have the shoe width "normal", about 45% have "extra width" and about 5% have a narrow foot. However, the width and length of the shoe must fit in order to prevent discomfort as far as possible.
In addition, the natural rolling motion of the foot should be promoted and the foot should be guided safely in the heel. Conclusion: a fit that meets the individual requirements of the wearer must be guaranteed. In many cases, fashionable shoes in particular have enormous weaknesses in this respect.
Depending on the "task" of the shoe, different requirements arise.
