Tips for Buying Shoes
- RULE #1, buy a shoe that fits!!!!! Shoes do not have to cost hundreds of dollars in order to be comfortable they simply have to fit.
- Every manufacturer sizes their shoes differently, so do not buy shoes solely based upon the number imprinted in the shoe.
- Buy your shoes at the end of the day after your feet have had a chance to swell a bit. Wear or bring with you the sock you will be wearing in that shoe. If you are wearing a dress sock or panty hose and try on an athletic shoe when you would normally be wearing a thick athletic sock, you may not get a good feel for the fit of the shoe.
- If your feet have a tendency to swell, your best bet is a lace-up or Velcro shoe. Slip-on shoes will not accommodate swelling.
