British shoe sellers will study anatomy

The English Society of Shoe Fitters is launching an updated training course "Foot Anatomy and Shoe Design" on March 1, 2012. The five-month course covers all topics related to shoe materials, foot types, fit and customer service, and is intended for both manufacturers and retailers. The cost of the course is £ 550.

“Now hairdressers, specialists in tattoo parlors and manicure parlors, massage therapists must know the anatomy and physiology of a person, the shoe industry, unlike them, has never received sufficient legislative support,” says Laura West, secretary of the Society of Shoe Fitters. responsibility for foot problems with their customers, because there are many stores, but it is clear that sellers can give advice on the correct choice and prevention of diseases. You just need to teach them this. "

“We have several multi-brand retailers that are fantastically responsible, but even they lack the practical knowledge of what a shoe fit is,” continues Laura. “Shoes are often sold self-service in supermarkets and online stores, which makes it easier not only to choose, but and the appearance of problems. Children wear shoes that are not the right size or age, and sometimes they (and their parents too) simply don’t know what harmful health consequences such a choice will have 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.

The organization brings together manufacturers of pads, podiatrists, podologists, shoe technologists and sales representatives. This writes the site analpa.ru.
