Since many shoes are designed to fit a certain type of foot, know what type of arch you have before you go shoe shopping. You should get your feet wet and then step on some white paper. The wet parts will illustrate your arch type. If you have a flat arch, then the majority of your foot print is going to be visible. If you have a high arch, you won't be able to see the middle. This information will help you find a shoe that is the right fit for your foot.

Do not try and convince yourself that you can break in uncomfortable shoes. Shoes should feel comfortable right away. There's a very good chance the shoe won't respond to stretching the way you anticipate it will. All they may do is hurt your feet until you give up on wearing them.

When you shop for kids' shoes, make sure there is room for additional growth. When measuring from the tip of the biggest toe, allow a thumb width more room to the shoe's end. This allows a shoe to fit and continue to fit for a while. A salesman can help, too.

Do not buy shoes that hurt and expect them to start feeling better later. You will sadly and painfully learn that shoes that cause pain are no bargain at any price. The exception is if you want to get them professionally stretched to fit over bunions or corns.

The more shoes you own, the easier it is to find a pair to suit your look of the day. Many people notice the type of shoes you are wearing. So you should always have a pair of basic dress shoes that can be used for almost any occasion.
