Feet Get Larger with Age

One thing that doesn’t shrink with age is your feet. As you age, the tendons and ligaments attached to your bones lose elasticity, causing your feet to become wider and longer. It’s important to know that as your feet change, your shoe size will change too. Wearing ill-fitting shoes is more than just uncomfortable, it can also lead to bunions and blisters.*

Make an effort to measure your feet the next time you go shoe shopping. Your feet grow larger with age, so if you care for an elderly person, make sure their shoes fit comfortably.
