Fitting Tip

Tips on Tuesday

When it comes to dropping some real cash on a pair of shoes...you want to be sure you get the best fit possible.  By now, you know to have you feet measured and work with a shoe-dog you trust.

But...could you do more to make sure you end up with a pair of shoes you love?

I suggest that once you have narrowed down the style,size and exact shoe you wish to purchase--ask the salesperson to bring out all the pairs they have in that size and model.  Each pair may feel just a tad different and you get to pick the pair that feels the best.  This is especially true with quality shoes that are hand lasted; like the Dansko Professional Clog. Whenever I buy a new pair of clogs I try on every size 39 Narrow the store carries.  Also, if you are a details person you may enjoy picking out the pair with the straightest stitching or richest coloration.

Happy Shoe Hunting,

This is so true! There was a problem with a pair of my Dansko Pro clogs, they sent me a new pair, and it was labeled my size, but I swear it felt 2 sizes too big! I took that pair back to my shoe store and they graciously let me swap it out for a different pair that fit me. Always try them all if you have the chance!
