British shoe sellers will study anatomy

The English Society of Shoe Fitters on 1 on March 2012 launches an updated training course on Foot Anatomy and Shoe Design. The five-month course includes all topics related to footwear materials, foot types, fit features and customer service, and is intended for both manufacturers and sellers. The cost of the course is 550 pounds.

“Now hairdressers, specialists in tattoo parlors and manicure rooms, massage therapists are required to know the human anatomy and physiology, the shoe industry, unlike them, has never received sufficient legislative support,” says Laura West, Secretary of the Society of Shoe Fitters, “Of course, it’s impossible to oblige stores to carry responsibility for the problems with the feet of their customers, because there are many shops, but it is clear that sellers can give advice on the proper selection and prevention of diseases. They only need to be taught this. ”

“We have several multi-brand retailers that are fantastically responsible, but even they lack practical knowledge about what shoes fit,” Laura continues, “shoes are often sold on a self-service basis in supermarkets and online stores, which makes it easy not only to choose, but and the appearance of problems. Children wear shoes that are not suitable for age or size, they (and their parents, too) sometimes simply do not suspect what harmful health consequences this choice will turn out in the future. ”

To prevent the consequences of the wrong choice of shoes, Society of Shoe Fitters has been conducting Back To School special studies in stores for several years in a row in August-September, collecting statistics on the number of children who have any problems with their legs. Any store can join the study, for this it is enough to download the form posted on the company's website.

A non-profit organization created in 1959 in order to train shoe industry specialists, as well as inform buyers about all issues related to shoe fit, purchase and foot care. The organization brings together manufacturers of pads, podiatrists, podologists, shoe technologists and sales representatives. This writes the site analpa.ru.
