The true purpose behind buying shoes has always remained the same: provision of protection and comfort.

Saying this, in the US for instance, 82% of the population buys products with the same retailer due to brand loyalty.

This brand loyalty develops due to multiple reasons, and, in many cases, even diminishes comfort.

In fact, a large proportion of customers buy products solely based on looks or even just the brand.

However, to take better care of your health, there are multiple things to check than just brand and image, including:

1. Appropriate Sizing

Most people do fine with the length of their shoes, as you can easily measure it in the stores. However, sizes must also include the appropriate width for your feet.

Therefore, always check the size guide carefully.

This part is tricky because each brand size differs, and there are even differences from one country to another.

2. Style

Once you are clear about the size of your feet, the next challenge is to pick the right style for yourself.

Generally, size and style go hand in hand. For instance, do not choose a shoe purely because the design looks pretty.

Similarly, don’t just pick a shoe because it fits your foot. In the long term, you would want shoes that fit well with your clothing and the occasions that you are buying for.

3. Research and Trial

In this day and age, it is quite easy to predict the credibility of a store or a brand.

Simply, check the reviews on that shoe, or at least the store, to see if you others are satisfied.

Also, start with a single pair, making sure that you are happy with the size, quality, and the level of comfort.
