A Definitive Guide to Finding the Perfect Sneakers For Your Feet

Posted on February 23 2016

A sneaker is just a sneaker, right?

Here at SRI shoes, we know the exact opposite to be true. When creating their sneakers, brands take all types of feet into consideration. Rather than creating a generic shoe for all that doesn’t work for any, these companies design sneakers to work with each foot type.

Pardon us for the clichè, but one size does not fit all. In order to have comfort and, most importantly, protect your feet during day-to-day activities, it is vital that you find some sneakers that fit your feet.

Find the Best Sneaker For Your Foot

Flat Feet

Those with flat feet may have found their hips hurting. This is because the arch of the foot helps a person’s posture and evenly distributes weight to the balls of their feet. Without the help of an arch, the hips take on most of the weight and tire easily.

To fix this, we recommend that those with low arches purchase a shoe with outstanding arch support. Skechers are known for their great arch support, and would be the perfect pick for someone with flat feet. 

Wide Feet

Nothing is more uncomfortable than shoving your foot into a shoe that is too small. This becomes extra problematic if your day’s tasks require you to be on your feet for the majority of the day.

If you have a foot that’s a little on the wider side, you’re most likely familiar with this problem all too well. New Balance has a great selection of sneakers that are made for people with wider feet in mind.

High Arches

Just as those with low arches need superb arch support, those with higher than average arches need that outstanding support as well. People who have high arches need proper footwear to aid the feet in redistributing weight properly. Those with high arches may want to consider Dr. Scholls sneakers when they’re looking for their perfect shoe.

Plantar Fasciitis

Do you experience heel pain in the first few steps you take after being sedentary for a little while? You may have Plantar Fasciitis. Well-made sneakers are crucial for people who suffer from Plantar Fasciitis. Cheap sneakers don’t provide the needed support and can make the problem even worse.

Instead, look at sneakers made by Asics. They make some of the best shoes, period, providing superior cushion, arch support, and toe room for aching feet.
