Once And For All, This Is The Best Time Of Day To Shop For Shoes

Right now, you’re probably thinking about buying a pair of ghillie flats or sandals. Anything ghillie. But before you do, really think about WHEN you’re going to buy these shoes. I don’t mean right this second vs. next week, I’m talking the time of day because it’s best to try on shoes first thing in the morning.

Between walking and standing all day, your feet swell. If you try on a pair of shoes at the end of the day, you’re likely to go up a size and wind up slipping out of the shoes when you put them on the next morning. Podiatrist Phillip Vasyli tells Total Beauty, “But when you wear a shoe that fits the foot at its proper size, the shoe actually helps pull or bind the foot together. If you keep the foot in a certain shape, it maintains that shape.”

So there you have it! First thing to do when you wake up is try on new shoes. Sounds great to us.
