Try on the left and right shoes and walk around in them for a while. You might only notice discomfort in a shoe after your purchase if you do not walk in it before buying it. You should actually try on different sizes so you know what fits best.
Flip-flops are not smart footwear in all situations. These shoes offer very little support and will not protect you from injuries such as stubbed toes or sprained ankles. So keep flip-flops for limited, recreational use.
Avoid shoes that aren’t comfortable. Sales people will lead you to believe that painful shoes will be comfortable after a breaking-in period. This is not always how things happen. On the contrary, good shoes will feel comfortable when you put them for the first time. If they are not a perfect fit, find another pair.

Now, as you enter the shoe store, start putting each of these tips to use. You will be able to relax now that you’re more aware of your choices. You’ll be able to get a pair of shoes that you really need in a fast manner so you can get on with your life.
