The One Thing You Should Never Do When Buying New Sneakers

Sneaker shopping can be misleading. You see an aesthetically pleasing pair and think, Sneakers are comfortable, as long as they’re the right size, they’ll be perfect. WRONG. Sneakers can be wildly uncomfortable if they’re not the right sneakers for you — yes, there is such thing! Everyone has different feet, and some sneaker styles just don’t work on all of them. So regardless of size, make sure the feel is right for you!

Stan Smiths might be the sneaker of the moment (last week alone, I counted 6 pairs in my class of 15 people), but maybe they just don’t work for your feet! I’ve come across this issue with TOMS shoes—so annoying, but it’s not worth crying over weird-fitting shoes.

Bottom line: make sure your shoe of choice fits. The easiest way to do this is, you know… trying them on. But we get it, in-store shopping isn’t for everyone.

If online shopping is seriously your jam, make sure you pick your shoes from a site with a generous return policy. Luckily, one of the best return policies out there belongs to shoe-lover haven, Zappos.com! First off, their policy allows a 365-day window on all returns. Yes, you have an entire year to decide if your new kicks are right for you. Granted, the policy specifies that the shoes should be returned in their “original condition” — but according to this shopper, that simply isn’t true! B.J. Keeton claims to have purchased a $140 pair of running shoes from Zappos and found (after running about 450 miles!) that they weren’t quite right. Not only did Zappos give Keaton a refund, but they also gave him a site credit because the shoes had dropped in price since he bought them! AMAZING!
