When is the best time of day to buy shoes?
“Late afternoon. That’s when your feet have swelled and are at their largest size. Buying shoes in the late-afternoon means they’ll fit just fine in the morning when your feet are at their smallest. But more importantly, it means they’ll fit after a full day of being on your feet when you need them to be most comfortable. Shopping tip: Your feet look like they’re the same size, but chances are one is slightly larger than the other. So when you try on shoes, buy the size that fits the larger foot the best. Did you know? Feet can increase in size as you get older. They’re not growing, but tendons and ligaments often get stretched over time. If you haven’t bought shoes in a while, have your feet measured first.”
In fact, have them measured first, period.
