How To Look After Your Feet

Experiencing foot problems can have a huge impact on your life as a whole, as you risk losing mobility (and your independence as a result). However, far too few people spend time taking care of their feet, ignoring them until a painful issue begins to arise as a result of the lack of attention. Making such a mistake can have devastating effects, so there’s no time like the present to begin learning more about foot care essentials that you can take on board to maintain ultimate foot health. If you’re interested in finding out more about how you can look after your feet, then read on to uncover some of the best tips and tricks that you can utilise now!

Find The Right Shoes 

First off, finding the right shoes is one of the most important steps that you have to follow if you want to take great care of your feet, as continual use of a poor fitting or low quality pair of shoes can do real damage to your toes, bones and feet as a whole. You must identify the correct size shoe for your unique needs as opting for a size that’s too small will compress your feet, whereas a larger pair will cause pain inside the arch of your foot due to overcompensation as your feet slide around inside. Even if your shoes are the right size, they can still be uncomfortable. Some shoes don’t have enough support, whereas others are too structured and provide barely any room to breathe. High heel shoes can cause long term damage to your feet and legs, whilst flip flops or flimsy sandals can cause flat feet and considerable pain. Finding the right shoes may take some time, but you’ll feel as though you’re walking on air in the most suitable pair.

Never Ignore A Warning Sign 

It’s absolutely vital that you nor your family ever ignore a warning sign when it comes to foot health, as the simplest of symptoms could actually be an indication that far worse is on the way. Whether you’re experiencing a simple bout of pain, notice something odd or just don’t feel right – you must head to your nearest doctor or foot specialist to get your feet looked at before worse symptoms begin to take hold. Thankfully a quick search of ‘podiatrist in my area‘ will provide you with numerous highly recommended locations that you can book into and attend in a timely manner. Never leave your foot problems to fester and worsen, as you do not want to endanger your ability to walk and move around independently over something that could have been avoided. 

Thankfully, learning how to take great care of your feet has never been so simple when you can take some time to make the most of some of the brilliant tips and tricks that have been carefully detailed above. Start off by finding the perfect pair of shoes for your unique needs, and remember to never ignore a warning sign no matter how small it may be.

Club Sock : The Last Sock

IMG_5656

Websitewww.clubsock.co.uk

This months delivery is my very last from Club Sock, as I opted for the three month subscription.

As you have read in the last posts, I have been 50/50 with my subscription socks.

The first were ok, the second were pink and not a colour I would normally wear so I was hoping that they saved the best for last.

I opened the package…

My first thought was these are ok looking, again not a design I would normally select but hey its good to try something different sometimes.

Just like the previous socks, the material is very very good quality. The design is ok, I am sure someone reading this will like it when others won’t so its all down to personal taste.

These also felt nice to wear, very comfy and were a perfect size for me. When wearing these with shoes they felt good, and kept my feet nice and warm.

Overall this idea is a funky one, as more and more items are being packaged as a subscription box clothes, aftershaves etc

I probably won’t continue as the styles are not to my taste, but if you have liked what you have seen why not try Club Sock out?  Just because it wasn’t for me, doesn’t mean its not something for you so check them out.

Club Sock : The First Sock Review

I recently saw on Twitter another Glasgow Blogger reviewing Club Sock, the idea sounded cool so I thought lets give them a try and see what its like. As you may have read I tried Cheese Postie in December so I wanted to try another subscription service.

There were two I had in mind, one was Club Sock and the other was for guys boxers…I selected Club Sock.

If you know subscription services like Netflix etc then this is just the same but with socks. You pay a monthly fee for how ever long you like, and each month premium socks are carefully selected and sent to you via the post.

Club Socks subscription is split in to two :

  • £7.99 a month
  • £23 for a one off pay

I went for a one off payment of £23 for a 3 month subscription, as I thought lets see what style and quality they were offering.

Basically when you subscribe you don’t know what colour, brand or design you get till they arrive, so it’s a fun time when they arrive and you open your package for the first time.

As you can see from the above photo, this is how they arrive via the post. This is good, as there is not a lot of wastage since its just socks.

Now was the reveal of what the socks looked like.

First Impressions :

First impression was “pink

Pink is not normally or really ever a colour I would choose, I am more a Black, or Blue person so this was a little disappointing.

The quality of the socks are really good, and the fit is very nice and comfy but its just the colour for me.

Yes, I did try them on, but due to the colour I wouldn’t wear this one so I am now hoping the next one is a better colour….well one that is more to my taste.

Overall :

Overall the idea is very nice, and the quality of the socks are really good. For me this first one was a little disappointing due to the colour, maybe someone out there doesn’t mind but for me it’s not a colour I would normally wear.

Looking forward to my next one now.
