Now that we’ve written many times `use more than one pair for work’, it’s time to make it more transparent. One pair or more to wear at work interchangeably?

Your body will heal back

-If you use over one pair.

Let me explain that- human feet are not designed to be supported by the same platform all the time! Your feet need variations. If you always wear the same pair of shoes, your feet will miss the natural difficulties.

Both should be of good quality

Perfect work boot or shoe is a must.

Footwear influences everything

What you wear and how you walk influences your ENTIRE body and fitness. It affects legs, knees, back, lower back, ligaments, all the lower bones, joints, and muscles.

Didn’t you notice that our steps and impacts on the ground significantly influence the backbone?

The human body’s not simple and ‘butterfly effects’ are more real in our bodies than the entire world you know! From backbone to toe tip, your shoes and boots affect every lower-middle part of your body. These should not always face a uniform wear and step pattern every single day.

Even shoes need to heal

The boots will heal back if they could have one or two days off every once in a while. This will increase the lifetime from 150%-300%. Ever noticed that leather has a strong tendency of getting back to the original form? The more time it gets to sit back idly, the better sturdiness you get.

Clean, healthy shoes

The interior would be more odor free, there will be fewer germs.

Care materials work efficiently on your boots

Moreover, leather softeners work like a charm if they are applied during the break days.

You can track deformities down

If you wear one pair, chances are you would not notice footwear deformities and this point, my friend, is enormous. Sometimes, we can’t feel that the shoes are enough worn out or some parts of the boots are already risky and gone or the shoes support your anatomy no more.

Your feet or toes can develop deformities without letting you notice. That’s because it happens gradually and you do not notice. I’ve seen a friend’s toes. He was a part-time bartender while studying. How can his toes and nails get deformed without his, well, `aware permission’? That’s because he was not like aware of the ongoing process.

Social impacts

Wearing over one pair to work gives you a psychological and sociological boost. You don’t want to look the same every other day.

Give your feet and footwear a break, and this will benefit you in the long run.

Same shoes or different ones?

You can even use the same brand, series, and model for two pairs. If so, wear one pair for a month and then if satisfied, purchase the second one. Having at least one different series is vital for variations.

Give your body and attire a break, it will benefit you in many ways.

Let me know your thoughts.

  1. I thought it was really interesting that feet need variations and aren’t designed to be supported by one platform. To me, this makes sense, because we’re always going over different terrain and surfaces. I’ll have to look into different casual shoes I can buy to change up what my foot is on.
