Buying new shoes online: what to look out for!
New shoes Buying might be the most fun there is. Most people buy new shoes every season. Boots ladies in winter, flip flops in summer.
Plenty of possibilities. Usually people can totally imagine how a certain shoe will look with a new outfit. But apart from looks, there are of course many more things to consider when buying new shoes.
Especially when you make your purchase online. But how can you be sure you won't make a bad purchase?? What to look out for?
We have some tips for you.
Have you found a pair of beautiful ankle boots ladies on sale? But do you find it a bit exciting to buy a pair of shoes online? Especially since your size often varies by brand? Then use the online size chart.
This is specially designed to make it easier for people to choose the right size. This is very easy to do. You measure both feet first. Next you look at what size fits your foot size. Don't be alarmed if your feet are both a different length.
This is only natural. In that case, always keep the biggest foot forward. So you can be sure the shoes will be comfortable for both feet.
Are you unsure between two sizes? Then find out about returns. With free returns, you can of course always choose to pick two sizes and try them on at home first.
Fitting at home under the right conditions
Have your new shoes arrived? Then you probably can't wait to try them on. However, always wait for the right conditions. Be aware, for example, that your feet change throughout the day. They start at their narrowest and later in the day they will be a little wider.
This is especially because of all the walking during the day. That's where the feet set slightly. Very normal, but it can mean that shoes suddenly feel much less comfortable at the end of the day.
That is why it is always wise to try on shoes at the end of the day. That way you can be sure that the shoes will be comfortable under all circumstances. If necessary, choose to try on the shoes both in the morning and in the evening and feel the difference yourself.
The advantage is that it usually takes a while before you actually have to return the shoes – if necessary.
When you try on the shoes, it is important to take a good walk around the house. Walk through the living room, up the stairs, and so on. That way you get a better idea of the feel of the shoes. If you just stand or walk back and forth briefly, this is much more difficult.
Of course, don't go outside because if the shoes look runny, it may affect the ability to return them.
Read the reviews of the different providers
Webshops pop up like mushrooms these days. It is therefore very easy to find a provider in women's and men's shoes. However, there is a difference in quality. Especially when it comes to service, customer contact and product delivery.
That there is so much choice has a big advantage for consumers. You will be able to make an informed choice partly due to the large number of suppliers on offer.
Here it is very important to find information online. Read the different experiences of other consumers. This is valuable information. For example, how certain problems were solved, how they would describe the service, and so on. Of course this is different for each person and there will be at least one person with a bad experience at every company.
Of course, when the majority of stories are positive (or negative), you can learn a lot from them. So you can compare the different providers more easily and be sure you've made a good and reliable choice. Buying shoes online then becomes a lot more fun.
