    "Context: Wearing inappropriate shoes can cause biomechanical imbalance, foot problems, and pain and induce falls.

    Objective: To verify the prevalence of wearing incorrectly sized shoes and the relationship between incorrectly sized shoes and foot dimensions, pain, and diabetes among older adults"

    ....and we need a study to tell us this, how much do these guys get paid to do this?

    Here is a guy for their next study group, some bright spark from an Athletic store fitted this diabetic 3 sizes to small.....
    l forgot to mention, this photo was taken whilst the client was seated, standing that toe goes even further forward

    Studies like this remind me of a feature in Mens Health magazine which never fails to raise a smile from me. It is called 'Ministry of the Bleeding Obvious' (thinking about it I may start a thread on them actually) and it summarises the months 'least suprising research'. Here's 2 from the May edition:

    The hardest part was convincing him there was a problem "The other store had that fancy coloured thing in the store to check your feet"

    So, to push the issue, it was part of a wager, he didnt think he needed a size 13, "The last bloke fitted me with a size 10"

    l explained that it was most likely the cause of the ulcer at the end of his big toe and the ulcer between his1st and 2nd, "Double or nothing for a new pair of shoes if l am wrong" a moment silence and he agreed, l didnt charge him double but he did buy two pair of shoes
