Footwear review

A footwear review is a podiatry based assessment of an individual's footwear.

What is a footwear review?

A footwear review is an assessment of the suitability of a patient's footwear by a podiatrist. During a footwear review the podiatrist will look at a number of different factors such as the material the shoe is made out of and what fastenings if any the shoe has.

What is the purpose of a footwear review?

A footwear review is carried out on the majority of patients to determine whether the type of shoes they are wearing are a contributing factor to their problem or condition. Inappropriate and poorly fitting footwear can lead to a number of problems or can make the symptoms of condition worse. Following an assessment a podiatrist will be able to recommend the best type of footwear for each patient.

What podiatry related can a footwear review help with?

Footwear which fits properly can help to prevent or treat the following podiatry related conditions;

  • Callus build up
  • Painful corns
  • Blisters
  • Morton's neuroma
  • Knee pain
  • Shin splints
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Ankle sprain
Footwear can also be used to accommodate foot deformities and are a particularly useful tool for patients suffering from disorders such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
