What Every Shopper Needs to Know about Shoes

This is a collaborative post.

Having the right pair is everything. It brings a certain level of ease and comfort you’re your life that no one seems to notice. Imagine wearing a pair of shoes that make your feet hurt and have you counting the minutes until you can take them off; it can be a horrible experience.

Our shoes do more than cover our feet and they are more than decorative items on our shelves. That’s why investing in a good pair of shoes with the right quality and perfect for the occasion is important to feet health.

Here’s how you can decide if a pair of shoes is the best option for you.

Aim for Protection and Support
Shoes are meant to protect and support your feet throughout the day. To do that, they are made with different materials and technology. Before you invest in a pair, check the materials used to make the shoe. They should be durable, breathable, and support your leg to prevent ankle strain or pain. The soles should be thick enough to absorb shock, especially when doing rigorous activities. It should also protect your feet from cuts and the penetration of sharp objects like nails. Having enough wiggle room for your feet is another factor to consider when buying shoes.

What purpose do the shoes serve?
When making a shoe, the producer usually has a purpose in mind for which it is intended. They could be for dancing, walking and casually running errands, walking, hiking, working in a danger-prone environment, and more. So, if you buy a pair of shoes and use it for reasons other than what it was intended for, you wouldn’t get much use out of it. Those shoes will be more prone to wear and tear and can cause you a level of discomfort. If you find yourself in pain whenever you take off your shoes or find that you still get injured, it might be because you got the wrong pair.

Functionality before Beauty
The first trick to investing in the right pair is to stick with the purpose for which it was made. If you go to a Nike store in Australia for example, buy a set of walking shoes and go running with it or hiking, it would reduce your enjoyment of the product. Once you have gotten shoes that fit your needs, the next is to ensure that it is a perfect fit. The best way to get the right fit is to shop at the end of the day when your feet are slightly swollen as it helps you pick the ones with the greatest level of comfort. You can then consider the beauty of the shoes and what resonates with your sense of style.

Closing notes
Where there is an opportunity to try on the shoes before purchasing, don’t miss out on it. We are all victims of impulsive buying but that should not always be the case. Walk in the shoes for a bit and get an overall feel of it. Do your research by checking reviews on shoes you like and if you are confused, ask a consultant attending to you in the AU Nike stores for help.
