A Guide to Shopping for Shoes Online

In October I bought a pair of shoes from Zara that I returned because they were too small. Then about a month ago I bought another pair of shoes from Zara that I had to return because they were too big. As explained in previous articles, shoe shopping online can be difficult. So, today I’m going to give you some tips on how to shop for shoes online.

Read Size Charts

The first thing you need to do when shopping for shoes online is read the size charts. Size charts let you know how long a shoe is in inches or centimeters and they let you know what size a shoe is in other countries. You should read size charts because a size 6 at one store may be a size 8 at another.

Measure Your Foot

Measuring your foot is another important thing you need to do before shopping online. If you know how many inches or centimeters long your foot is, you will be able to use size charts to see what size you actually need to order. A size 6 in men’s are about 8 – 8 1/2 inches long but some can be up to 10 inches.


Buy Two Pairs of Shoes

Buy two pairs of shoes when shopping online. Get the pair you think will fit and get a pair bigger or smaller depending on how big the shoe is. Most brands have free return shipping or you can return items in store. So, if you can afford it, get two pairs.

Get to Know a Brand

Getting to know a brand will help you know what size to get. Buy from the same brand and you will know what’s size to order, how big their sizes usually are, how their sizes fit, and the quality of their items. This works with pretty much all brands and all items. For example, since I’ve purchased shoes from Zara and have been to their store and tried on a couple of pairs, I know their shoes are usually big. I also always get my jeans from American Eagle or Aeropostale. I get size 28 jeans from American Eagle but I get size 27 from Aeropostale.

Those are my tips for shopping for shoes online. Follow these tips and you will know how shoes will fit and how they will look before you buy them.
