How To Buy Boots Can Help You Improve Your Health



What fashion magazines consider "right" shoes can be completely wrong for our feet. Ankles and toes suffer from soaring heels, pointy toes, and support-less sandals. The wear and tear on our feet can cause permanent damage if we wear them all day long. It makes us less mobile and less likely to exercise if our feet hurt.


It's the same difference between walking barefoot or in shoes whether you walk on shifty sand or hard cement. This evidence suggests that your ideal footwear is the one you were born with-or at least a minimal shoe. Traditional shoes can also be good for your feet.


A person's age, health status, walking and running habits, and other factors must be considered when choosing the "healthiest" shoe. Running in traditional shoes but quickly switching to minimal footwear, as well as walking slammed down, may put some people at risk for injury.

Time spent barefoot or wearing minimal shoes may strengthen your feet and protect you from injury and pain. In addition, wearing properly fitted footwear, ideally with a thin, flexible sole and a low heel, can help keep your feet and body healthy.


Taking a look at some types of boots for men, let's take a look at:

  1. Chelsea boots

  2. Work boots and engineer boots

  3. Chukka boots or desert boots

  4. Hiking boots

  5. Dress boots

  6. Ankle boots and Jodhpur boots

There is always something more accomplished by boots than by shoes. The best boots in the garage are working hard while shoes are busy arguing semantics in a boardroom.

There is no doubt that footwear shanks golf balls on the weekend; however, boots travel over, around, and through every surface of the earth on a daily basis. There has always been an association between boots and movers and shakers throughout history, and damned if they don't apply to everyone as well.

You can walk around the corner for a cup of coffee or walk into the woods to do some "real" work, regardless of whether you are going into the woods for "real" work or simply for a walk.
