(HealthDay News) — Wearing shoes that don’t fit can contribute to a long list of foot problems.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests how to choose the right footwear and keep your feet happy:

  • Always measure both feet each time you go shoe shopping.
  • Try on shoes late in the day, when the feet tend to be a bit larger.
  • Women should opt for heels that are no higher than 2 1/4 inches.
  • Make sure the shoes fit properly in the heels and the toes, with 1/2 inch of space between the shoe and your longest toe.
  • Try on both shoes to be sure that they fit comfortably on both feet. Opt for the size that is most comfortable on your largest foot.
  • Walk around the store with both shoes on to make sure the fit is comfortable. Don’t count on “breaking them in.”
