SHOE SHOPPING TIPS by Mike Djordjevich


How often have you bought a pair of shoes, only to find out later that they don’t fit as well as you thought they did when trying them on in the store? If your answer is at least once, then you are not alone. So, to help stop such a scenario from happening again, remember the following tips the next time you go shoe shopping. With any luck, these tips will help you find better-fitting shoes.

  1. Don’t make shoe shopping your first task of the day.

Feet naturally expand as you walk around during the day, so going shoe shopping too early can give you a misleading fit when you’re trying on shoes. Shoes that felt like a perfect fit in the morning can feel overly tight once the evening arrives.

  1. Always try on shoes while wearing a suitable pair of socks.

Shoe shopping in the wrong pair of socks can cause you to misjudge the size of the shoes. To ensure your shoes fit as expected, always try on shoes while wearing similar socks to the socks you will be wearing with the shoes. If you plan to wear the shoes without socks, then factor this into your decision as well.

  1. Do up any laces, straps, or other fasteners.

If a shoe feels good on your foot while undone, don’t assume it will still feel good after doing up the laces, straps, or other fasteners. To help ensure a proper fit, make sure you’re trying on shoes in the same done-up state that you’ll be wearing them in.

  1. Take the shoes for a walk before making your final decision.

It isn’t easy to test out a pair of shoes while sitting down. To ensure a specific pair of shoes properly fits your feet, stand up in the shoes and walk around the store for a bit. While you’re standing, wiggle your toes to ensure there’s enough room for comfortable movement.

Properly fitting shoes are essential for keeping your feet happy and healthy. After all, wearing ill-fitting shoes can lead to foot pain and instability while walking. So, to ensure you always leave the store with a properly fitting pair of shoes, keep the preceding four tips in mind whenever you are out shoe shopping.
