Shoes are a game-changer for your whole outfit. If not chosen right they can affect your complete appearance. When it comes to buying shoes there are some things that are essential to consider, such as an appropriate size and width, ideal fit, skillful craftsmanship, use of high-quality materials for the upper, lining, and outsole. They should make you feel comfortable for as long as possible. Here is a list of the things that should be kept in mind while purchasing a shoe, these will for sure land you with a good and perfect shoe, just as desired.
Know Where You Have to Go When You Need A New Pair of Shoes
Choose a shoe store that delivers everything that is required to have the perfect fit for your feet. It is easier to buy a shoe when you know where you have to go instead of going to every store and looking for what you need. Also, make sure that your go-to store has variations in shoe style and design. We at Oxygen make sure that all the aspects of having the ideal shoe is fulfilled within the variety provided. Whether it’s the quality of the product, the design, the size and the price, oxygen has always been successful in balancing the equation to produce the perfect shoes.
Shoes That Do Not Fit Properly
The best way to have the optimal fit is to try at least three sizes before buying the shoe. There is a very less chance that all the brands have the same sizes which is why most of the customers are stuck with numbers when their shoe does not fit. It is better to play safe than being sorry after you are home with a new shoe that fits properly in the store but does not fit right at home.
Shoes Should Fit in The First Go
Shoes should be made of soft leather, wherever possible, and provide your feet with enough room – in all three dimensions: height, width, and length. Oxygen ensures the use of soft leather in all of its shoes to give them a more comfortable feel. As soon as a shoe starts to feel uncomfortable, you know it is not the best one for you. Do not fall for the classic lines “they will wear in” or “they will widen over time”. A pair of shoes should fit perfectly straightaway or you should not buy them.
Flexible Sole Is A Must
When the size and width are right, turn your attention to the softness of the leather and a flexible shoe sole. Flexible means the ability to bend. Lots of people mix up the flexibility of the sole and the softness of the inner padding. Therefore, doing the ‘bending’ test will help you in getting a flexible shoe. The sales associates at the store of Oxygen does the bending test for the customers to guarantee them that they are getting the best product available. Bending the shoe (i.e. bend the heel and the toe area towards each other) and if the soles take a form, then the shoes have extraordinary flexibility.
Leather Finishing Is Very Important
Always check if the shoe is made of a synthetic material or leather. Humans release around 0.1 cl (i.e. a shot glass) of perspiration from their feet every day. It is therefore crucial that the shoe must be breathable and can absorb moisture. Leather is a natural product with different material properties. No other material is as flexible and can absorb and release moisture so effortlessly. Here, at Oxygen, we either fully line our shoes with a real leather lining (90% of shoes) or with a breathable microfiber. This prevents sweaty feet and gives a healthy atmosphere for feet to breathe.
Mix Fashion with Comfort
Oxygen as a brand makes sure that the variety displayed in the stores are a mix of fashion and comfort. If the brand focuses just on the fashion it would lead to create pairs that are trending but not easy for the feet to carry. Oxygen considers it a responsibility as well as a duty to balance out the equation of both, following the trends while making the shoe pleasant. To conclude, in the right pair of shoes everyone is comfortable to go along in life and do their daily tasks and activities which is why Oxygen aims to provide relief to its customers. By following the above- mentioned tips and tricks anyone can grab the best pair of shoes.
