Men's Shoe Shopping Tips
You should always be able to wiggle your toes inside the shoes (all of the toes.) It should be approximately 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch (1.25 cm to 2 cm) "toe space" (gap/ room between the longest toe and the shoe tip.) Do not accept "toe space" less than 1/4 inches (0,6 cm).
Try new shoes in the evening/ late afternoon. Why? Because your feet swell during the day (yeah, it sounds crazy - but it's true!)
Start trying shoes with your larger foot. Which foot is the larger? The larger foot is usually the opposite from the hand you write with. I.e. for left-handed persons, the right foot will usually be the larger. Too be sure, always try on both shoes if the first one fits well.
Always try to walk with the new shoes on before you decide. Does the heel slip when you walk? If it does, do not buy the shoes - they will cause you pain!
Always try shoes with the same type of socks you intend to use with the shoes. Try winter shoes with thicker winter socks, and summer shoes with thin summer socks.
Never buy "slightly too small" shoes, just to hope they will fit after a "breaking in period". It will not happen!
