Lockdown Feet 👣
Have you suddenly noticed that new shoes might not be fitting? You seem to be a size larger?
Not to worry - we are mostly all the same. It is that time of year again when we put our flip flops back in the wardrobe and the covered toe shoes come out. Maybe you are going back to the office and have to wear shoes again!
At the end of summer our feet are on average half a size larger. The same as our rings feeling tighter in the heat and at the end of the day from finger swelling, the same is true for our feet. It is however very noticeable at the end of the summer. Suddenly getting your feet into new shoes can feel rather like getting toothpaste back into the tube.
Don't worry though as by mid September they are usually back to their normal size. However with the added bonus of lockdown, you probably haven't been wearing heels, hey, you probably haven't worn anything other than flip flops or trainers - it might take a bit longer. Just make sure you don't leave it too long or you may suffer from foot spread and that would mean buying all new shoes!
