What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

To get the right fit: * Try on shoes in the afternoon or evening. Feet swell throughout the day and can be half to a full size larger in the evening than in the morning. * If your feet are different sizes, buy to fit the larger one. * Have at least 5/8\ between your longest toe and the shoe. * Test walk shoes on hard surfaces rather than padded floors. * Don't be tied to a particular size. Shoe sizes vary by brand and feet continue to grow as we age - as much as half a shoe size a decade past our 40s. (* Main points derived from an article published by the Arthri- tis Foundation.)
