 The feet are in a pretty tough situation during the whole period of pregnancy, as they have to handle at least twice the regular weight of your body, because of the newly formed baby in your womb. Due to that, the body tends to supply additional fluids and blood to the feet to keep them in optimal condition, and because of that, the feet grow in size.

  This may seem a little surprising and unbelievable, but there is evidence to prove that. According to a study conducted by the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeries (ACFAS), the feet may grow to an extra half of the full size permanently, so obviously, old shoes won’t fit. However, if you are reading this article to get some directions and tips for getting new ones, then you’ve come to the right place! Below are some tips that are recommended by worldwide famous doctors and podiatrists as for finding the right shoes, so that your pregnancy period will pass with a breeze!

Tip #1: Say no to heels!

  There’s also an exclamation mark in the end, so you can say that this is important. Heels exert additional force on your feet because they lift your body from the ground, so feel a little pity for your feet and get shoes without heels, they will be extremely grateful to you for that. And now you must be wondering what I should get, which brings us to our next tip.

Tip #2: Get some airy shoes

  Everyone and everything needs space to breathe, and that applies to your feet as well. Sweat due to tight and closed shoes can result in various infections, which is not good for your feet, especially during pregnancy. Get some shoes that are comfortable and spacious, like Sandals.

Tip #3: Try finding shoes with rubber soles

  This may sound a little stupid, but shoes with rubber soles are a great ally in your everyday journeys during pregnancy. Why? Because rubber soles are great shock absorbers, and considering the weight gain, they can be very helpful while walking on hard surfaces where you can easily generate friction.

Tip #4: Buy shoes at least 2 times larger than your current size

  The tip title says it all, but I’ll explain a little bit with the logic. As stated above, your feet grow to an extra half of the current size of your feet. This will save frequent trips to the shopping mall as your feet will continue to grow until the end of the pregnancy period.
That is all! If you expected more, then I’m afraid to say there isn’t. However, these tips are more than enough to get the shoes you want for the time of your life, so if you found these tips helpful, be sure to share this article with other pregnant friends and family members so that they can follow them as well! Hope you enjoyed reading it!
