While most men are happy with just four pairs of shoes, women need a full dozen to even begin to imagine their wardrobe as complete. Of course, women’s shoes also have a lot of variety and diverse looks so it makes it easier to shop for shoes that are fashionable and chic.
The biggest problem when buying women’s shoes is the quality of the shoe. Due to the numerous fashionable designs, it is very easy to get fooled into buying a shoe that either comes apart after a few wears, or loses its shape quickly. Furthermore, the most important element when buying a good shoe is comfort.
Start by doing your research when buying a shoe. Fashions change every six months, so be sure that you are buying a shoe that is either currently in fashion, or is a wardrobe staple that will always be chic, like a black pump.
When you go into the stores, knowing the current trends will make it easier to go through all the variety and choose the best shoe. It is always a safe bet to buy high heels in colours such as black, silver or brown. You should also always have at least one pair of good quality boots in your closet, as well as a pair of flat sandals.
There will be hundreds of shoes that match your requirement, with the only difference being brand names and prices, so you need to really educate yourself on what it available so you can make the best decision for your outfit or closet.
Look at multiple stores, and go online since you can look at an even larger variety this way. Once you know your price range and style you want, you are one step closer to the final decision. While many people prefer to buy many shoes at cheaper prices, it is actually advisable that you buy fewer shoes from well known stores since the shoe will be a wardrobe staple you can use for a few years before it needs to be replaced.
Always buy shoes to fulfil a need. It is possible to buy a pair of shoes every time you go into a shoe store, however, this way you will end up with dozens of pairs that you never wear. Always buys shoes when you need them so that you end up using them and making the most of the money you spent. If you need to buy shoes for work, get leather shoes and similarly if you are athletic then buy sneakers. Buying a shoe that you need ensures that you end up wearing it.
Look at the quality of materials used. Handmade shoes are usually expensive, but great quality and very durable. Leather is another durable material but there are some alternatives to leather shoes available as well. The shoe should feel very sturdy and not end up breaking after one wear.
Finally, make sure you buy a shoe that is comfortable to wear and walk in. Put both shoes on and walk around the store a couple of times. The shoe you end up buying needs to feel snug, but not too tight, and be comfortable to walk and stand in.
