If you have ever purchased sneakers from a nearby store, only to discover they didn't fit, then you know how annoying it can be. This situation can be confusing, especially if you are sure they are your perfect size.
Most people visit the shoe store and go with any footwear that sizes them. However, the fitting of shoes goes beyond getting your perfect size; you must also be comfortable in them. Let's look at a few things you need to pay attention to when picking out your footwear.
Aside from putting the shoes on to ascertain the size, you also have to walk in the store. Most shoes will perfectly fit completely standing in them, only to reveal some issues after you have taken a few steps. Your potential shoes must fit without slipping off.
2. Ensure there is enough space around your legs
After a few walks, wiggle your toes to see if they move. If they don't, it means there is no space for your legs to breathe. That can lead to smelly shoes as sweat builds up over time.
3. The shape of the shoes
Ensure the shape of the shoes aligns with your legs. For instance, if you have wider feet, you should avoid any pointed footwear to prevent your small toe from slipping out.
4. The feel of the shoes
Well-cushioned shoes provide enough support for your legs as you walk through different terrains. If you feel the tension as each of your legs land on surfaces, choose another footwear.
Finally, you should consider how long the shoes will last. Your shoes should at least last a year before changing.
