TIP OF THE DAY NO. 32 – BUY SHOES WHICH DON’T HURT

TIP NO. 32 – BUY SHOES WHICH DON’T HURT

When we fall in love with a pair of shoes, and the salesman says, “Sorry, we don’t have them in eight and a half” – we convince ourselves that size 8, which we are trying on, really doesn’t feel so tight, even if our big toe is going to sleep.

Here are a few ideas to help you get the right size:

-Buy your shoes in the afternoon,  or after you have been on your feet for a few hours -in the morning when your feet are rested, they will be half a size smaller than later in the day.

– See if there is an area that is not carpeted in the store – and walk there for a minutes, you will feel the difference – a soft carpet makes every shoe feel so much more comfortable

– and most important – when the salesman says, “Don’t worry they will stretch. DON’T BELIEVE HIM! (Check in your wardrobe how man shoes you have which didn’t stretch!)

– the shoes you buy must feel so comfortable that you would like to walk out of the store with them –

Don’t compromise – you owe it to your feet to give them a comfortable home.

See you tomorrow
