The holidays are here and it’s time to pick out gifts! If anyone you’re buying gifts for needs some new shoes or has existing foot conditions to care for, consider purchasing foot health related items for them! Our Bethesda foot clinic gives some advice on gifting shoes and shoe accessories for your friends and family.
Shoes are the perfect holiday gift. No matter who you’re looking to buy shoes for, you can always consider their main activities. If someone you know is a runner or is into sports, they’ll always need a new pair of athletic shoes! Make the investment in a high-quality pair of athletic shoes for your loved one and ensure that they take good care of their foot health.
Sometimes people find that they have a specific foot type, like flat-footed or high-instep, but don’t purchase the special shoes for their foot type since they may be costly. However, it’s very important to wear the proper footwear for your type. When shopping for your loved ones, consider any foot issues they have and pick top-end shoes for their foot type. Another great option is to purchase shoe inserts, they may be a great gift for someone who already has a favorite pair of shoes but uses orthotics!
Pampering yourself is always great during the holidays. Consider buying gift certificates for foot massages, podiatrist visits, or shoe stores (if you’re not sure their size or foot type!) It’s important that everyone takes care of their foot health and this is the season to take care of your loved ones as well.
