How to buy the perfect shoes

Shoe shopping is many a fashionista’s kryptonite. After all, one of the most popular Carrie Bradshaw quotes is “I have this little substance abuse problem… expensive footwear”. Buying shoes may appear as easy as finding a pretty pair, paying for it and taking it home. But there are other things you should keep in mind if you’re looking for those perfect shoes:

Don’t give up. It may seem like all the beautiful shoes are uncomfortable and all the comfortable ones look like granny’s, but there’s still hope! As long as you keep searching, you’re bound to find the perfect fit.

Know your size, get your size. Shoe size may change with time, depending on such factors as your age, weight fluctuation and industry standards. Get your feet measured by a specialist to know your real size, and never buy shoes that are too tight or too loose. Chances are, if the fit is not perfect when they’re new, it never will be.

Just high enough. High heeled stilettos are clearly the sexiest, most beautiful shoes out there. But don’t go too high with your heels if you can’t handle them! Nothing is graceful about barely being able to walk in your own shoes. Choose a platform or chunky shoe for more stability, or go for medium heels instead.

Go for the classics. Classics are often synonymous with “classy”. Fashion trends come and go, but a round toe ballet flat, a nude peep toe or a black pump will never go out of style. If you want to make an investment, make sure it lasts for a very long time.

Go crazy. Yes, we realize this is the complete opposite of the tip above. However, having one pair of crazy-cool shoes will save you from lots of annoying wardrobe situations! A classic little black dress looks fantastic with a pair of neon pumps, animal print peep toes or anything eye-catching, really.
