Shoes don’t hurt your feet. 4 points to pay attention to when shopping

On December 10, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of industry and Commerce announced the results of sampling inspection on the quality of footwear goods, including 19 kinds of goods from huite Footwear Co., Ltd. and Guangzhou Xinda Footwear Co., Ltd., which were found to have unqualified wear resistance, bending rigidity and hardness of hook core. These problems have great potential health and safety risks, and are also most easily ignored by consumers. Therefore, people should carefully check the following four points when shopping.

if the heart is soft, it is easy to sprain a steel hook core is installed between the outsole and midsole at the foot center of leather shoes (except flat shoes and wedge heels). It is the backbone connecting the heel and forefoot, supporting and maintaining the overall shape of the shoe and stabilizing the heel. Unqualified hook center will cause the overall deformation of the leather shoes, and the heel will tilt around, resulting in unstable walking, and even sprain and fall in serious cases. Li Zirong, chief orthopedic expert of China Japan Friendship Hospital, told the life times that high-quality shoes can give better support to the arch of the foot without damaging the physiological function of the arch. However, if the wearer does not have sufficient support at the hook Center for a long time, the heel is too high or the front foot is too tight, the arch of the foot may collapse, causing pain when walking, cocooning, and even hallux valgus. Generally speaking, the toughness of the middle part of the shoe is moderate and it is not easy to sprain. When selecting shoes, you can press the inner part of the foot hard with your hands, which is not soft or deformed. You can also twist the shoes with your hands, but it can’t be twisted or it can be twisted into a “fried dough twist”. When trying on, you can turn your feet to the left and right to test the stability of the shoes. If your feet are easy to turn over, it is easy to sprain. It is recommended not to buy them.

the heel seam is the most abrasive Qi Xiaoyan, a researcher from China leather and footwear research institute, told the reporter that the parts where the feet are worn are mainly at the heel seams and toe caps. New shoes are too small or the leather is too hard, which is easy to grind the feet. Long term wearing can easily lead to diseases such as corns, paronychia, hallux valgus, etc. Therefore, we should try to buy soft leather shoes such as sheepskin; If there is a seam at the heel of the shoe, carefully check whether the thread head and the leather protrude; Try it on for at least ten minutes, walk back and forth, and then make a decision. If you accidentally buy shoes that grind your feet, you can dry a wet paper towel, soak it in Baijiu, and fix it at the place where you grind your feet for one night; If the edge of the shoe is worn, cover it with a wet towel for a few minutes to make it moist and soft, and then take a glass bottle and other cylindrical objects to roll and press them for several times; If the new shoes pinch your feet because they are too small, you may as well cover them with a wet towel, and then stretch them with a shoe wedge to make them comfortable to wear.

artificial leather shoes cover up beriberi artificial leather shoes not only have poor air permeability and skid resistance, but also are easy to harden at low temperature, resulting in problems such as sweat, smelly feet and unfitness. Experts suggest that you should not buy shoes made of artificial leather, nylon, plastic and other materials as far as possible. They have poor permeability and are easy to infect your feet with bacteria and fungi, causing beriberi. It is better to buy real leather shoes and cloth shoes. So, how to distinguish real leather from artificial leather? First of all, check whether there is upper material marked on the shoebox. According to national regulations, the upper material (what kind of natural leather, two-layer leather, synthetic leather, artificial leather, etc.) should be marked on the shoebox in a prominent position; Second, carefully observe the leather surface, which has clear pores and patterns; Third, cover the leather with your hand for a while, and the leather will feel plump and smooth. Artificial leather and synthetic leather will feel wet and sticky if you cover them with your hand for a little longer; Fourth, when you touch the suture with your hand, the dermal suture is bulging out, while the leather suture is concave. In addition, at the leather joint, the dermal suture is relatively dense (5-6 stitches per centimeter), while the artificial leather suture is easy to be broken if it is too dense, so it is generally sparse; Finally, you can use your fingers to push from the inner side of the leather to the outer side. The leather with delicate and bright grain is genuine leather, and the synthetic leather with no change or gray grain is synthetic leather.

it’s easy to wrestle if the sole pattern is shallow there are many kinds of sole materials. Among them, rubber soles are soft, elastic, non slip and shock-absorbing, but slightly heavy; Plastic bottom is wear-resistant, but not slip resistant and poor cold resistance; Foam bottom has good elasticity and is more suitable for the shape of feet, but it is slippery and easy to wrestle. It is best not to wear it for the elderly and pregnant women. When shopping, pay attention to check whether the sole is flat and whether the pattern is clear. If the pattern is shallow or the sole material is not wear-resistant, it is easy to slip after wearing for a long time; Gently press the sole with nails, which should be elastic, not too soft or too hard, otherwise it is easy to damage the foot.
