There are many ways to define your foot type. Here at Anya’s Reviews we use Shape (shown above), Width, and Volume to determine what to look for in a shoe. You can find a guide to understanding your foot type and the brands most likely to work for them here.

  1. Hi Anya,
    Delighted to see some clear thinking about our sole means of support. (sorry!)

    Having spent many years of frustration with the irrationality of the dysfunctional retail shoe industry simply trying to find size 13s, (especially on sale) to be told, “We only get a few and they sell out right away”…”So why don’t you order more?)…”Gee, I don’t know”, I gave up and have just worn open toe sandals year round for a decade.
    I noted however, your mentioning the importance of sole flexibility and the arch deterioration, and as I was just researching care of my varicose veins, ran across this lecture by a Stanford surgeon explaining the issues. https://youtu.be/nr8gnuffOjw
    At mins 3 and 54 he refers to the importance of the arch area and dynamics in leg circulation which seems to relate to your own. I have not yet explored all your pages, so please excuse if you have already noted it.
    Congratulations once again from Vancouver.

    1. Hi Wayne, Sorry to hear you’ve had troubles finding shoes that fit well! I have not dug deep into varicose veins, but I can see how a lot of strength and flexibility in the feet and legs could help keep blood from pooling. Best of luck as you navigate this new world!

Hi. I'm Anya.

I first discovered barefoot shoes after a long history of foot issues. By changing my footwear and strengthening my body I was able to completely transform my life. Anya’s Reviews is my way of sharing with the world that healthy feet are happy feet!
