Dropped by Dr.Kong at the 3rd Level of Robinson's Galleria the other day and realized that at age 31,I still don't know so much about choosing what the best shoes for my foot type.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? Because wrong foot soles could mean foot pains and especially for kids,random selection of shoes could easily affect children's normal foot development.I do experience foot pain during long travels and choosing the right fit could ease the possibility of foot pain.
Girls and ladies can't be left behind.
Of course they also have shoes for adults.I wish they make some as fashionable as that of kids.hehe
And they are fashionable too!
I have always thought I am flat footed.I recall being clumsy when I was young.I always slip when walking so my friends and family always tease me as flat footed.Time to find out the truth......
2.High Arch Foot
It doesn't end with the computerized feet assessment.Once done,they will take your footprint and have it marked on a large sheet where the Footcare Assistant mark the foot/leg problem (if any),the definition and effect as well as the suggested product for you.And they do suggest a stretching exercise you can do too at any rate your feet feels pain after a long day of being on the road for example.
>>Normal Foor type
The Footcare Assistant suggested:
- Mild Arch Support
- Hard Heel Counter
- Soft Padded Sole---for shock absorption and to reduce plantar pressure.
I was relieved to know that I have normal foot.I always thought I am flat-footed.But since I always travel.I get to strain my feet a lot.They recommended that I get 'semi-rigid' foot sole so as to lessen the tension during long walks.
I was also told that I should avoid cross-leg sitting and X-prone lying.Cycling on the other hand is a good exercise for me.
Walking around DR.KONG Robinsons Galleria with the Pro-Healthy Comfort Insole in my shoes really spells a big difference.Now I am ready for my Southeast Asia Backpacking trip comes May 2013!yey!
