 Tips:

  • Measure your feet for shoes in the late afternoon or evening; since that's when your feet are the biggest (they swell during the day).
  • Simply wet your foot and place it on a brown sheet, or any flat surface which allows you to see your foot print, now compare the impression you leave with the three figures which are mentioned as Normal, Flat & High-arched foot.
