Quick tips to remember when shoe shopping

  • Make sure you can wiggle your toes a little inside your shoes
  • Try on both shoes and walk a few steps to see if they pinch or rub
  • Choose leather uppers or materials that allow your feet to breathe and mould well to the shape of your foot
  • Feet tend to swell a little during the day, so buy shoes in the afternoon when your feet are at their largest
  • Visit a member of the Society of Shoe Fitters for a professional fitting service
  • Buy the right shoe for the purpose – high heels are not for walking distances
  • Buying shoes in a “sale” may save money, but could cost your feet dearly. Ensure they fit correctly
