Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Measure Your Feet Day.

Measuring our feet as we grow up is commonplace, but once you reach adulthood, you may stop measuring them at all. Your feet may have stopped growing, but later in life, they can widen and flatten, so this day is a reminder that it's worth measuring feet once a year.

If you don’t measure your feet regularly, your shoes may not fit properly. If your shoes are ill-fitting, you could be at risk of a whole host of issues, including:

  • Foot pain and deformities such as hammertoe, corns and calluses.
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Blisters
  • Bruising.

Poorly fitting shoes can also cause you to walk differently, leading to extra pressure on your knees and ankles – this can result in issues with your joints later in life.
