Buying shoes online can be a hit and miss experience. To make your shopping as enjoyable as possible, here are some tips to help you get started.
Know Your Size and Measurement
Knowing your size is not enough. Different stores may have various sizing charts, not to mention the discrepancies among countries. Measure your feet from heel to toe carefully, note it down, and compare the measurement with the conversion chart which the store provides.
Choose a Store with a Good Return Policy
If your shoes arrive in the wrong size, what you need is a trouble-free return policy. Choose a store that offers free returns within a reasonable timeframe. Some big stores can offer home collections for returns. If not, you just have to print out the return label and bring the package to a designated collection centre.
Choose a Brand You Are Familiar With
If you continue to shop at your favourite shoe brand, through their online store, you reduce the risk of choosing the wrong size or material. Since you know your brand too well, you don’t even need to compare sizing charts. It’s also easy to return the shoes to a physical store if you don’t like them.
