My mother in law often warns me to NEVER share shoes with other people. It’s hard to listen to sometimes, as I like shopping at trendy consignment shops and sometimes I find a cute pair of shoes. Why does she discourage me from wearing other people’s shoes?

Besides the obvious bacterial and germ factors coming from the sweat of other people’s feet and into their shoes, there’s another factor which you may never have thought of. It’s the fact that people “wear out” their shoes differently.

What? “I’ve never heard of that,” you might say. Hold on for a moment, hear me out. We all “wear out” our shoes differently. For instance, my husband ALWAYS wears out his heels quickly and his shoes always need to be tapped if he wants to wear them for more than 2 months. Why is that? Apparently he walks funny- no, seriously, the way that he walks puts more pressure on his heels for some reason and as a result, he wears his shoes down considerable in the heels.

Other people wear down their shoes in other areas. If you’re not sure how or where on the shoe you wear it down most, look at your older shoes. Where are they consistently “worn down”? It will become pretty obvious to you after a while and you’ll notice a pattern. Does the toe area of your shoes practically have a mold of your toes in them? Are your shoes loose on the sides of the shoe?

Learning how you step will really help you understand more about yourself, especially if you tend to have nagging pain in your body that you can’t seem to solve. Think of sciatica pain or plantar fasciitis or numbness in your feet or legs. All of those mysterious symptoms sometimes come from walking incorrectly or putting too much weight on one part of your feet and not the rest.

Have you figured out why you shouldn’t wear other people’s shoes? One answer is that because everyone walks differently and “wears out” their shoes variably, if you step into other people’s shoes that have been “molded” to that person’s feet because of their unique stride, you’re at risk of tumbling or an overall discomfort from needing to go against the way the shoe has already been molded. Who needs anymore discomfort when it comes to shoes, anyway?
