From Boots To Sandals: Shop Seasonal Shoes
Attention, shoe lovers. Have you had a look at the shoe cabinet recently? Any new pairs needing to be rocked, or do you need a re-up? Put your best foot forward, and step into any season in style with Hyde Park Corner and these stores and recommendations based on your taste and preferences.
First, Get Up and Go To A Physical Store
Buying shoes, or any item online, has its perks and downfalls. But nothing beats going to an actual store to try them on and get a feel for what you are about to invest. Because they are indeed that, an investment.
While one of the main reasons for shopping for shoes at an actual store is that you will try them on, trying them on is not just so you can see how they look. Here are some of the things to look out for when shoe shopping:
- The right fit: Our feet naturally swell as we walk throughout the day, and the afternoon is typically when they are the most swollen. To guarantee that you have the greatest fit, try to buy shoes around this time. By doing this, you may ensure that the shoes you purchase will fit your feet when they are at their largest, avoiding future discomfort and tightness.
- Consider socks: If you are buying sneakers, boots, or shoes that will require socks, go to the store with a pair to try the shoes on.
- Get measured if possible: Ask the salesperson to measure you if you are unsure of how the shoes will fit based on its cut and design. This way, you’ll know if you need to go a size up (such as when buying pointing shoes that offer little room for toes) or a size down for shoes you know will stretch.
- Walk a bit: Of course, you will need to test drive your potential pairs of shoes, so take it up.
