Wearing in your shoes in three simple steps!

1: Socks are especially important in new shoes to avoid blisters. Socks provide an important interface between the foot and the shoe. Remember, sock thickness can vary significantly so always fit new shoe using the socks you plan to use.

2:
Wear new shoes around the house for 2-3 hours on the first occasion, then increase the wear times as comfort allows.

3:
Build up your activity/sporting durations gradually with practice situations. For example, use a new running shoe for a few short walks, then a short run every second time out, for the first few weeks.

Clinics In Association with Waikato Podiatry

Visit us in the city on a Saturday

Professional Advice + Weekend Convenience = Happy Feet

Smiths Sports Shoes and Waikato Podiatry have worked together a lot in the past and it makes sense for us to now join forces to offer you a complete podiatric and fitting service under one roof.
We recognise that not all our clients can take time out during the week for appointments or to shop for professionally fitted footwear. So with your convenience in mind, we now hold a complimentary podiatry clinic on the second Saturday of each month between 10am - 2pm, in the heart of the city at Smiths Sports Shoes, 298 Barton Street Hamilton, so that you can reap the benefits of a full podiatric assessment and unbiased advice on the best fit for your feet. Smiths Sports Shoes stock a wide range of sports footwear and are ready to assist with expert knowledge of the whole range of stock.
