Healthy Big Feet

Big feet and small feet need a lot of care. When our feet are in poor health, they can cause a lot of misery. Those of us who are not physically limited spend about 75% of our day on our feet. Even when we have a sit down job their are tasks which require us to stand on our feet. A uncomfortable feet can be pure torture, especially a big feet because lots of times a person with a big feet is likely to be wearing shoes that does not fit well.                                                                                                                                                                                                    As I stressed in earlier posts, it is important to buy shoes that fit well, whether you work in an office on a padded floor, in an establishment with cement floors or in a field, standing on dirt, it is equally important that we wear a well fitting shoe.


We have delicate nerve endings in our feet which can affect how our legs, thighs, hip, back, neck and entire body feel. If your feet are uncomfortable you are not going to stand correct and this will eventually have an effect on our entire body. Feet care is just as important as eyecare. It affects our balance and coordination and believe me it affects your disposition because if your feet hurt, you are not a happy camper.

As I stated before, first find a good fit for your feet, care for your feet by keeping them clean. If you suffer from a foot disease such as athletic feet, sweaty feet or fungus between your toes, find or have your Dr. recommend a good foot powder or spray, this will bring great relief. If you suffer from an abnormality such as odd shaped feet, spurs or even missing toes, you must see a foot Doctor and follow his recommendations.

Remember if you have trouble balancing,your coordination is off, you find yourself standing in an awkward position or suffer discomfort while standing or walking, check your feet. There are many products that may help, as mentioned before, foot powder or spray, shoe inserts, paddings or special made shoes.

Do not walk through life with hurting feet, it shows Take care of your feet just as you do the rest of your body. A healthy feet is a happy feet.  If you have questions or suggests on ways to healthier feet hit me up @

More Great Tips For The Big Men In Your Life

When my husband and I attended a funeral yesterday, I realized he was wearing a pair of dress shoes I purchased for him about three years ago, I had made a comment a few days earlier about his shoes looking bad because they were turning over at the heels, what surprised me most was that he listened to  me.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                In  order to enjoy your favorite shoes longer, buy two pair at the same time, alternate wearing them, double the life of both pairs. This helps to retain that new fresh look. It also gives the shoes plenty of time to breath.

If you have sweaty feet, sprinkle a little foot powder inside your shoe before putting them away, the powder will freshen them and soak up any moisture left in them. You can easily wipe the powder out when you are ready to wear them again.

  Always wear clean socks, this also helps to keep shoes nice and fresh. It helps to keep your feet healthy also.  Check your feet often, if every pair of shoes you try gives you a problem, it may not be the shoe, it may be your feet. A lot of men (and women) don’t give their feet as much attention as they should. A healthy foot is a happy foot.

Make certain that shoe fit. If it doesn’t fit it is going to cause you pain. When you try that shoe on, walk around in them for a while, do some bending and flexing. How do your calves, hips and back feel?   A good fitting shoe helps to prevent corns, bunions, fungus and many other things that can cause your shoes to feel uncomfortable, so keep those feet healthy.

Find a brand that feels great on you. There’s comfortable shoes for you.  Hoping to help you.


Big Men And Their Footwear

2015_05_Life-of-Pix-free-stock-photos-city-man-shoes-legs-leeroySome people have a natural curiosity about what other people wear. watch people when an especially large person, man or women enters a room, they are going to look from head to toe.                                                                                                                                                                      I have a tendency to look at shoes, my husband is a big man so I look at Big Men Shoes. A big man can have ten pairs of shoes in his closet and only wear that one pair that they have broken in and feel comfortable on their feet.  Often times they are worn down at the heels, scared and often times busted on the side or at the toe or heel.                                                                                                                                                           This is one of the things that lead me into this business venture. I want to make it easy for men to find comfortable clothes and shoes.  Most clothing stores have the Big and Tall men section, most will measure your feet. When trying on your shoe, think about where you will be wearing these shoes, what will you be doing, sitting or walking? Of course if you are going to be doing manual labor, after choosing a pair of shoes make sure you have plenty of foot breathing room, consider what kind of socks you will wear with this pair of shoes, probably thick socks. Be very aware of why you’re buying this particular pair of shoes and how long in the course of a day, you will be wearing them.                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Most men are busy outside of the home and don’t have time to sit and look through catalogs or pay that much attention to advertising. Some have trouble with simple terms such as, regular, wide, xwide, deep arch and so forth. I plan to make this easy by narrowing down what to look for and where to look it. Happy shopping everyone.                                                                                                                 

Easter Fashion Parade for the Big, Small an Petite.

easter-268490_640                                        This pass Easter was the first in a long time that i missed our celebration at my church. I started thinking how my Mom would have reacted to me missing service, Easter was a big thing in our house. This was the time we all had something new to wear, most times we only got one new outfit a year and believe me, we appreciated our outfits.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Almost everyone in our community walked to church, so on Easter Sunday, around 9am, if you was in my part of town, you would have seen a true Easter Fashion Parade. We all thought we looked so good. There was no teasing about who was fat, skinny, greasy or grimy, we all thought each other looked good.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 In my part of the world, the weather was pretty mild in all seasons, so Easter usually was pretty warm so we did not have to wear jackets, which would have taken away from our parade from our homes to the church. I remember stopping ever so often to dust off my new patient leather shoes. My Daddy, who was a big man, led the Parade, in his not so new suit, he lead proudly, with his seven children walking behind him, knowing his children following him looked all fresh and pretty because he had been able to purchase new clothes for them.                                                                                                                                          I like to reflect back on my growing up days because it makes me appreciate so many of the things I have now. Growing up, I could not imagine having a closet full of beautiful clothes at my disposal or many of the other things I now have. Easter was a big time for us, I suppose because of where we lived, a farming community, people had very strong spiritual beliefs.                                                                                                                                                                                                       Easter was a time for renewal                                                                         A time for preparing and clearing new fields for planting crops and    gardening. A time for clearing out closets, spring cleaning and clearing your mind of pass failures and planning for a better season. Seems as if Easter gave you a new start,                                                                                                                                                                                           The Easter Fashion Parade seemed to kick it off. I love seeing the children all dressed up and filled with pride, I know they take it for granted because most have always had plenty but looking good, feeling good, and having a high self esteem in todays world is one of the keys to success. Don’t put a lot into whether you’re a big, small, short person, just try to improve yourself daily and Parade on.
