Shopping for shoes can prove to be a tedious task, because you need to have more than just fashion in mind. There are certain tips and tricks that experts have brought to our knowledge that makes picking the right fit easier than before.
So here are a few tips which everyone should keep in mind when shopping for the right pair of shoes.
First, stand in the shoes. Press gently on the top of the shoe to make sure you have about a half-inch of space between your longest toe and the end of the shoe. This provides enough room for your foot to press forward as you walk. Wiggle your toes to make sure there’s enough room.
Next, walk around in the shoes to determine how they feel. Is there enough room at the balls of the feet? Do the heels fit comfortable, or do they pinch or slip off? Don’t rationalize that the shoes just need to be “broken in.” Find shoes that fit from the start.
When picking shoes, you shouldn’t buy shoes that restrict the foot with the hope that you’ll manage to wear them. This can lead to problems with blood circulation and muscle functions. Moreover, such shoes quickly lose their presentable appearance.
Don’t forget to feel the insides of shoes to see if they have any tags, seams, or other materials that might irritate your foot. Make a conscious effort to make your choices based on comfort and durability rather that fashion trends.
Following a shoe fact, it has been advised by experts that to get the perfect fit, we need to shop for our shoes during the afternoon. It has been proven that our feet naturally expands with use during the day; if you’re buying from an online store like ours, measure your foot and determine the size during that period of the day, in order to find your perfect match.
Finally, you need to remember that over time your feet can become slightly longer and wider, so you should measure them every 2 years. Especially if you prefer buying shoes via the Internet.
