Proper shoe fit is difficult today due to a lack of shoe sizes and widths. In fact, a 1978 study by the American Podiatric Medical Association showed that 60% of consumers had trouble finding shoe that fit. In many cases, Pedorthists recommend P.W. Minor shoes because of the large selection of the foot shapes, sizes and widths they offer in all of their product lines.Women's shoes are available in sizes 3 to 13, and men's shoe sizes range from 4 to 15. Widths range from 2A to 5E.
In sum, P.W. Minor shoes are regularly prescribed by doctors and recommended by pedorthists because they are highly adaptable and offer the features that are crucial to proper shoe fit, including the largest selection of sizes and widths in a variet of foot shapes.
Perfect shoe fit is impossible, according to Dennis Janisse, C.Ped., President of the Pedorthic Footware assocation, Director of Pedorthic Education for P.W. Minor, and internationally renowned pedorthist. Nevertheless, there are certain principles of shoe fitting that pedorthists follow to insure a fit that is as close to perfection as possible. In many cases, properly-fitting shoes mean the difference between someone being able to walk or not walk at all.
To determine proper shoe fit, pedorthists discuss with the patient whether the shoe will be worn during particular activities, such as exercise or work. They also ask whether the patient is active, sedentary, or stands in one position for a long period of time. Nursing-home patients, for example, have different footware needs than factory-line workers.
