What You Need To Know When Shopping For Shoes

Apr 04, 11 What You Need To Know When Shopping For Shoes

Shoes, glorious shoes. What is it about them that drives us chicas crazy with desire and indifference towards price tags and potential discomfort? Such is their allure that we are willing to suffer through excruciating pain just to be able to rock a pair of fabulous heels. However, there are more things to take into account when shopping for a new pair of tacones than how fierce they look, so here’s a list of pointers for you to keep in mind:

  • Your feet actually swell up a little by the end of the day, so it’s better to try on new shoes at this time in order to get a more accurate size. Not that it matters if they have your size or not in those amazing knee-high boots. So help you God, you’re buying them anyway.
  • Look for shoes with some sort of grip, such as rubber on the soles. Obviously a smooth (and potentially dangerous) sole is no deterrent once you’ve zeroed in on a pair of shoes you love, so add some instant traction with a pad like Grippy Steps to avoid an embarrassing situation.
  • Material is important. Leather is the most popular and durable one, but there are also vegan alternatives (such as Natalie Portman’s or Stella McCartney’s footwear lines) if you object to the slaughter of innocent cows for the sake of fashion. Just steer clear of synthetic fibers, which are uncomfortable and flimsy.
  • There’s no need to spend a ton of money on uber-trendy, ultimo grito de la moda shoes since they will be joining Uggs in the Out of Style list before you know it. Also, cheap espadrilles are just as good as expensive ones so save your money and invest in a pair of high quality shoes you can wear with anything, such as black peep-toe heels.
  • Beauty is no longer pain, amigas. At least not pain in your feet, thanks to Dr. Scholl’s. Their Ball of Foot Cushions and Rub Relief Strips allow you to wear your most towering heels without having your mobility incapacitated for the night.

Now you know, so a comprar!
