One of the key things that the Hotter Team are extremely passionate about is well-fitting shoes; we just can’t stress enough how important it is to wear the right shoes for your feet. Not only does wearing poorly fitting, uncomfortable shoes make your feet feel tired and achy in the short-term, continually wearing ill-fitting shoes over an extended period of time can lead to painful, sometimes irreversible foot complaints.
This week is National Shoe Fitting Week, so there’s never been a better time to take a good look at your footwear and see if it really is right for you. In a survey we commissioned last year, over 70% of women admitted to suffering discomfort due to poorly-fitting shoes. And, when asked when they last had their feet professionally measured, the universal answer from adults over 50 years’ old was ‘when I was a child’.
Last year, we trained hundreds of staff within our stores and our call centre to become Fit Ambassadors – experts in correctly measuring feet and able to knowledgeably offer advice and guidance on choosing the right shoes. You can confidently walk into any of our stores and ask for a free consultation and professional measuring service at any time, and our Fit Ambassadors will be happy to offer you advice on different styles to suit the size and shape of your feet.
If you’re not able to visit a store – no problem! Our online fitting guide is designed to help you accurately measure your feet from the comfort of your home, helping you to work out the length and width of your feet and enabling you to find your correct size.
