Resolution #1: If the shoe doesn’t fit, don’t wear it!

It’s so tempting for women to buy shoes that don’t necessarily fit - especially if they are on sale or perfectly match an outfit. Do your feet a favor and resolve to only buy shoes that do not pinch, squeeze or slip when you try them on. And don’t just try on a potential new pair of shoes; get off the carpeted area of the shoe store and really walk around in them to determine if they are a good fit.

Other shoe shopping tips to remember:

-shop for shoes at the end of the day so that any naturally occurring swelling has already occurred

-wear the appropriate hosiery for the shoes you are buying

-know your foot type before shopping for athletic shoes - a podiatrist can help you determine your foot type

-know your heel height limit, some women can wear 4" heels, but others may have to settle for 3"
