Nails
Nail trimming – nails should be cut straight across, using only scissors; and the sides should not be cut. If a nail becomes ingrown, it should not be self-treated. The toe should be dressed and immediate treatment sought.
Nail mycosis – treat, do not neglect.

Hygiene
Wash feet at least once a day with warm water and soap.
Dry thoroughly, including between the toes.
In showers/locker rooms, wear personal slip-ons or sandals to isolate your feet from the ground.
Apply foot cream once a day.
Use only personal towels.

Socks
Preferably use socks made of natural fibers (cotton, wool).
Wear clean socks every day.

Shoes
At the recruitment center, try on shoes and make sure they fit you and lace up properly.
Length: there should be a space of 0.5 cm between the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
Width: the shoe should not be too wide not too marrow.
Move your toes about the feel comfortable.
Buy shoes in the afternoon.

Heels
Should be as wide as your heel and no higher than 4 cm.
Don't buy shoes that 'will stretch'. They should fit at the time of purchase.
Air the shoes every day.

Recommendation
Keep in your bag. For 'first aid':
1. Lemicil ointment ( for mycosis)
2. Fenistil gel (for itching)
3. Vita marfen – for any injury.

Choosing Sandals
Buy sandals mad of natural materials (leather, suede, etc.)
Buy sandals to fit your foot, and not ones that your foot has to get used to.
The sandals should fit snugly, so that the foot does not 'swim' in them.
Fasten the sandals firmly (buckle, 'scotch' (Velcro)) and do not leave them loose.
The width of the sandal should be the same as that of the wearer's ankle.
Do not borrow or lend sandals. Each person's foot is different from another.

Choosing suitable shoes
The heel: bears most of a person's weight. Unfortunately, heel height is generally dictated by fashion and not according to the needs of our feet. The ideal heel should have a wide base and not be higher than 4 cm.

Body: should enfold the heel from the sides and the back, and prevent unnecessary movement of the heel within the shoe. Above all, it should stabilize, or help to stabilize the heel as the foot treads on the ground. The softer the shoe, the less support it will provide.

Sole: the underside of the shoe it should be flat, with possible slight upturning in the toe region. Check that it does not 'pull' to the left or right.

Upper part: this should be made of natural material, such as leather.

Lining: as smooth as possible, with no lumps or irregularities.

Fastening: laces, scotch (Velcro), buckle, etc. are recommended, to hold the shoe securely on the foot. Shoes without fasteners must be especially narrow or short, and close fitting.
