The best way to prevent overhanging toes in open-toe shoes is to buy the right shoe size. Thirty years ago, the average shoe size for women was 7.5, but it has since increased to 8.5.
Many women who have given birth will often discover that their feet no longer fit into their old summer sandals. Not only do feet get bigger during pregnancy, but many women also experience their feet getting bigger later in life.
You’re also more likely to experience toe overhang when wearing high heeled sandals as they are more likely to cause slippage.
There are, luckily, many ways to keep heels from slipping. Some women swear to halter pads (shoe inserts that fit under the ball of the foot) and arch support that helps keep the foot back and adds support.
