Choosing the right shoes for different occasions, from so many designs and collections can be hard work. There are quite a number of options to choose from, it can get a little confusing. We all have different tastes in shoes, different needs and different walking styles, but the fact remains, we all wear shoes. This funny infographic from Fabi Shoes shows that what we drink, may represent what shoes we wear.
Do you agree?
Here are 3 basic tips you should have in mind when selecting your next pair of shoes:
Quality over Quantity
Attention to detail, finest quality materials and beautiful designs are what I look out for when buying shoes. I love Italian shoes, they are unique, elegant and trendy. I rather have an expensive Barracuda pair of shoes that stands out from the rest, to wear for years, than 5 cheap pairs from a high street store that will fall apart in weeks. I will pick quality over quantity any day. I am not saying high street is not quality, some are and some aren’t.

I always walk around for some minutes before buying new shoes. It saves me making a trip back to the store to return an uncomfortable shoe. I always check to make sure a new shoe fits in properly, and it is not painful or uncomfortable to walk in. I go shoe shopping in the afternoon or at the end of the day when I have done some walking around. That way, my feet will be slightly swollen from all the walking, and I get the right size of shoes.
Also, I wear the new shoes indoors for a while until I am 100% satisfied with the fit. Just incase I need to return it, I won’t have a damaged or dirty sole.
I find Kurt Geiger shoes very stylish and comfortable. Tried a couple of them now and I am impressed.
Go For Platform Shoes/Wedges If You Struggle to Walk In Heels
My final tip is for those who struggle to walk in heels. Go for platform shoes and wedges instead. They provide the necessary height as well as comfort. They may look very high, but they are definitely more comfortable than regular heels. In fact, wedges look like heels, but feel like flats, and this Sandalo Donna Cipro Nero sandals is a perfect example.
