Shoe Buying Guide

Are you a confirmed shoe addict or do you wear them because the alternative is too cold and uncomfortable to contemplate? †

To be quite frank, here in the UK we all need to wear shoes and most of us, if we are honest, like to buy shoes too. Whether it is high heels or safety boots you need to be sure that your shoes fit.†† So here at Wynsors we would like to bring you the mildly definitive guide to buying shoes, we would hope from us but these rules apply anywhere.†

So here goesÖ.

Buy Shoes That Fit

It may sound silly but buy shoes that fit. And the best way to do that before you go and get a new pair of party shoes or the latest cool trainers is to get your feet measured. You could use one of the many online guides to measuring feet to get an accurate idea of what size you are.† There is a separate section that goes in to a bit more detail on this later.†

Find The Correct Size

There are a few things to consider over and above measuring and what time of day it is, some of which are specific to certain kinds of footwear.† For instance when you buy walking boots consider you will be wearing two pairs of socks so buy at least a size bigger than you need to accommodate.† Some people do the same with football boots. Itís obvious that if you wear two pairs of socks with a certain type of footwear you need to consider this when you are buying a new pair.† See the difference a pair of hiking boot socks make when you measure your foot, for example. And ladies when you buy calf length boots or long leg ones your calf size will also need to be considered and if they are larger then choose a wide fitting ladies boot just as stylish but will be a much more comfortable proposition and will elongate and flatter your leg line.†
