Shoe Size Buying Tips

If you're buying shoes for your child, take into account that footwear for children usually lasts for about four to five months. Therefore, create a household budget that includes enough funds to pay for several pairs of shoes. If you're buying shoes for a first time walker, then be sure to purchase a pair with extremely flexible soles and a small amount of extra growing space. When shoes are too big, blisters are likely to form while a tight fitting shoe will chafe your little one's feet and cause redness. Measure your child's feet in the evening hours because feet expand throughout the day.

To find the most comfortable footwear for you, consider buying shoes for the width and length of your feet. Most people need to purchase shoes that are narrow or wide. You may even need to buy shoes that are especially slim or extra wide.

When buying footwear online, take into consideration the type of activities you'll be performing in the shoes. Hiking shoes should be durable and waterproof. They should also cover your ankles to provide protection from snake and bug bites as well as rocks and plants. If you are buying regular workout shoes, then make sure that they come with a cushioning insert to protect your feet and legs from the activity. Dress shoes should feature a thick sole and quality construction.
