Executive Director Paul Lazovick of the El Paso Downtown Development Association said. “This is the biggest blow to businesses here since 1982 ” when the peso was first devalued Hector Mendoza y Camano the Mexican consul general in San An

FIT TOUR STRIDE
Shoe fitting is an art rather than a science It is based on the shoe seller s highly trained sense of ” feel” In fitting shoes a measuring device such as the Brannock metal fitting tray should be used A person should ask to be fitted rather than simply asking for his size The salesperson should measure the foot while the customer is standing Because the left foot is usually the larger of the two feet both feet should be measured, lf there is a considerable difference in size between the feet, a person should choose the larger size and use an inner sole for the smaller foot. By allowing for enough toe room a person can eliminate the source of many foot aches
A shoe should be fitted to match the characteristics of the foot lf not measured properly, the foot may strike the ground in an abnormal position, causing injury Taking good care of your feet also includes periodic visits to a podiatrist Contact my office located at 1280 E.
