Shows an x-rayed foot in a circular inset. Stresses the importance of getting your feet measured for arch length, width, and overall length; seeing that the arch of the shoe fits the arch of the foot; seeing that there is plenty of length to allow the toes to move; and seeing that the shoe is not too wide or too narrow. This prevents hammer toes, bunions, corns and ingrowing toenails.
