BRANDON, FL, December 12, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Leading Tampa podiatrists, Drs. Brandi Johnson, Mark Leitner and Gloried Ebsworth, work together to provide their patients with exceptional foot and ankle health care. To help improve their patients' foot health, Drs. Johnson, Leitner and Ebsworth are available to provide important health tips. At Advanced Foot & Ankle Specialists, Drs. Johnson, Leitner and Ebsworth work to educate patients about the importance of choosing proper fitting footwear all year long. These podiatrists in Tampa, FL inform their patients that serious foot disorders, and common foot and ankle conditions, can be exacerbated by one, avoidable trigger: the wrong pair of shoes.
Properly fitted shoes pay off in the end for patients' feet - now and in the future. When looking for shoes, the most important quality to look for is durable construction that will protect the feet and keep them comfortable. Shoes that do not fit properly can cause foot pain in Tampa, including bunions, corns, calluses, hammertoes and other disabling foot disorders.
"The first step towards healthy, happy feet is choosing proper footwear. An average day of walking brings a force that is equal to several hundred tons on your feet and is subject to more injury than any other part of your body. This shows just how important the need to protect your feet with proper footwear is," said Dr. Brandi Johnson, Tampa, FL podiatrist.
With a wide array of shoes available, it is important to consider variables such as foot type, durability and fit when making footwear selections. Whether patients are looking for high-mileage training shoes, a comfortable work shoe or a recreational shoe, it is vital to select a shoe that is tailored to a patient's individual needs.
Dr. Johnson, foot doctor in Tampa, advises women to take extra caution with wearing high heels. Women tend to inflict more punishment and pressure on their feet than anyone else. Improper footwear worn by many women can bring about unnecessary foot problems that could have easily been avoided. To relieve the harmful effects of wearing heels, women can limit the time that they wear them, or eliminate them altogether.
The best shoes for men are an oxford style shoe, which are ordinarily associated with wing-tip or cap toe designs. Additionally, slip-ons, dressy loafers and low dress boots are also suitable shoes for men to wear. As you can see, though, the styles that men are capable of wearing are indeed different than those women should be wearing. Both men and women should buy specific shoes for work, leisure, and special activities. The shoes should match the intended activity.
Additionally, patients can receive valuable information on proper footwear, as well as other foot and ankle topic information via the educational library. Patients can access the education library via the practice's homepage. From Tampa diabetes foot care to bunion treatment, patients can visit the patient education library for valuable information on taking proper care of their feet.

Together, they strongly urge their patients to protect their feet by buying properly fitted shoes.
