How many times did I wear and end up with the wrong shoes? One, two, three or more times. Countless. I always end up hurting my feet and warming or cooling them down at the end of the day. When I met my high school friends during our reunion about two years ago, I wore high heeled shoes. I thought we’re just going to dine in a restaurant and have some talks but we ended up strolling at the park. My feet hurt really bad. I promised that day that I will never wear high heeled shoes again in a reunion.
When we went to Bataan last summer, my children and I wore slippers. We took hundreds steps up and reached the top of the shrine with tired and sore feet. We should have worn rubbers shoes instead.
At all times, it is best to wear the proper shoes. They give comfort and keep our feet relaxed. Nurses wear white nursing shoes and that keep them at ease while on the job doing rounds.
At home, when I work out, I learned to wear my work out shoes even when I just jog in place. My toes and sole hurt when I wear slippers. It is not easy running on flip flops.
So why is it important wearing the proper shoes?
The right shoes should be worn at all times because the shoes work not only for the feet but also for the whole body. They give support to help us prevent us from unnecessary accidents. For workers, it is precautionary measure of keeping themselves safe from potential hazards while at work and their shoes play a big role in their safety.
