Have you ever bought a pair of really beautiful shoes and then months later, wondered what you ever saw in them? Shoe buying is often impulse buying. We fall in love with the sexy peep toe, or the softness of the leather, or maybe even the color of the shoe. The love affair we have with our shoes begins with so much promise but, if we let our hearts be guided by style alone, the shoes ultimately find a permanent home in the back of our closets. Want to love your shoes and save money too? Try following these tips:
1. Buy shoes that really fit you
Have you been in this situation? You love the shoes but the store only has it in a half size smaller than your feet. Rather than look for other shoes, you tell the clerk you'll take them because you can stretch them and make them fit. Or perhaps, the store has the shoes in a size larger than your feet. You purchase them anyway, thinking you can stuff the toes with paper to make them fit. Whatever the scenario, there is nothing worse than wearing shoes that hurt your feet or are awkward to wear. While style is important, comfort is the golden rule when it comes to purchasing shoes.
2. Avoid buying expensive trendy shoes
Remember jellies, marshmallows, or maybe grannie boots? These were all great trends in shoes. But,how many of these styles are you wearing now? While styles come back, they rarely come back in the same form. So, rather than invest a lot of money in trendy shoes, look for shoes that fit and flatter your feet.
3. Buy shoes that match your lifestyle
Are you someone that spends a lot of time engaging in outdoor sports? Do you rarely wear a dress? Or maybe you are recently returning to the corporate world after being a stay at home mom for a few years. Whatever your lifestyle, your shoes should be functional. If they don't , they will seldom be worn and end up a waste of money.
4. Keep your shoes polished
Scuffed or dull leather shoes look old and tacky, and generally take away from an otherwise beautiful outfit.. Polishing your shoes make them and you look good.
5. Repair heels and soles.
If you walk a lot or drive a car day after day, the soles and heels of your shoes can get worn down. Rather than discard shoes with slightly worn heels and soles, extend their life by taking them to a shoe repair store. Shoe repair shops can be found on the internet or in your local Yellow Pages.
6. Utilize Shoe Trees
Shoes can sometimes lose their shape due to wear and tear. Maintain your shoes form by using shoe trees. Shoe trees are usually cedar or plastic devices you place in your shoes to keep them from losing their shape. While most repair stores just sell them for men, women's shoe trees can be found on the internet.
7. If Your Shoes Are Beyond Repair.
