If the Shoe Doesn’t Fit…

Posted on: November 12, 2009

Have you ever been in the mood to shop, but don’t want to take your 5 winter layers off just to try on something?  I have the perfect solution!  Shoes…shoes…shoes!  There are multiple reasons shoes rock my socks off…literally.

My first reason is that you can eat whatever you want at the food court, and they still fit!  That’s right, bring on the Chinese food!  The second is that you need them for every occasion including sports.  I don’t know about you, but for me that’s a good enough reason to buy any day. Third, it’s one fashion item that can actually drag your guy to the mall, so take full advantage of this situation ladies!  Lastly, there are entire stores solely (get it?) dedicated to the shoe. I know it’s a lame joke; however, it’s true. 

Unless you’re Carrie Bradshaw (for those men out there, this is no relation to Terry Bradshaw) looking for Manolo Blahnik’s you might be wondering how to find shoes on a budget? Simple.  Always go to the clearance rack first! It’s often that we head directly into the store and start looking. Your first rule of thumb should be going to the sale rack because you never know what you’ll find. It’s often hit and miss due to the sizes and lack of inventory, but many times the hit is more than the miss, and you’ll leave with an awesome deal!  Another trick of the trade is figuring out what you already have and adding to it. An example of this would be if you already have a boot, instead of buying another one in a different color, try buying a flat. Like I mentioned earlier, your feet normally stop growing, so unless you’re 11 years old going through puberty (ugh..I hate that word) you might want to diversify your shoes.  Remember when buying shoes, you must try them on first!!  The worst thing is buying a pair and only wearing them once due to the fact they make your feet bleed.  Avoid bleeding feet at all time!  Also when shopping for shoes online, look for stores that offer free shipping and reviews. Many outlet shops are also great for finding bargains.  If you’re out there and haven’t yet found the right shoe don’t be discouraged!  Like they say if the shoe doesn’t fit, keep looking. (Okay… so maybe the phrase has been altered a little!)
