Those who you who are “Sex and The City” fans will probably remember about the time when Carrie Bradshaw claimed that shopping was her gym and she would never trade city hunting shoes with online shopping. However today, over 15 years after that episode aired, things have changed.
Of course, there is still people who prefer shopping in-store rather than online, but the number of women who are online-shopping-obsessed exceeds the number of those who like in-store experiences. The good thing about online shopping is that you can get your favourite pair of shoes comfortably from your sofa, ordering them from home while sipping a nice tea. On the other hand, there is nothing more relaxing than a trip to the shopping centre either alone or with your friends, searching for the nicest pair of shoes.
The toughest aspect about shopping for shoes online is getting the size right so, to help you sort this out and manage to get the right shoes from your online-shopping session, here are some of the best tips for the correct shoe-shopping online.
Choose the right e-shop
It’s usually better to go for brands that you know are reliable and actually have stores as well as an online shop. Make sure to read their Return Policies so that you know whether or not you can return the shoes if the size, colour or model is wrong.
Another important detail is to choose e-store that showcase more than one picture of the shoes in high definition, which allow you to zoom-in to get an idea of the material and texture of the shoes.
When you shop in store, you just see te shoes you like, try them on and buy them. When it comes to online shopping, you want to read the descriptions carefully before selecting your size. It is also crucial that you have a look at the size guide and, if available, check the length of the shoes (either in inches or centimetres) instead of the actual size. This way you will be able to measure your own foot and estimate if it will fit or not.
Don’t get too mad at online shopping just yet
If it’s your first time buying shoes online, then only buy one pair and, when you receive the product, evaluate if you like the quality and if it reflects the description and image. Try them on and avoid to get dirt on the sole.
If the first time goes smoothly, then go on and start buying your shoes online; it will save you a lot of time and money!
