How many times we just regret our choices of buying the footwear which was all comfortable in the store but now when you’re using it for real, your feet are crying and probably bleeding? That is one thing that we have faced at some point in our time.
So, ladies, we have got your back as we bring you the post that discusses the important things to look for while buying the sandals. Here it goes:
The specific plans
The very first thing you need to consider is the activity you’re planned to do. You have to ask yourself the question, what are your plans and accordingly make the choice because not every sandal fits for a different purpose. No doubt, the simple walking sandals with bearable designs are used for “all purposes” by many women, but apparently, they get to know it too that you need different pair of sandals to fit different purposes. If you go for the wrong pair, things get a bit chaotic and you too become uncomfortable.
The material of the sandal
The second important thing you should consider is the material of the sandals. The material is important as it is an important determinant of comfort as well as of the durability of the footwear. It is important too because you have to ensure they go with the environment as well. For instance, for a sunny summer day, you can’t go for leather shoes or will end up sweating. Here are some common materials used in making footwear for women:
The material features traits like flexibility, durability, stretchability, etc which adds up to the advantage of buying footwear of the material. Not only that, you get many colours and style in it too. One reason that leather is a buy-buy thing is it gets better as you use it. With the environmental exposure and the contact of the natural oil produced by your skin, it will only get better. So, girls if you haven’t already had something in leather, you should totally have it.
- Synthetic materials
Leather is a bit on the pricey side and hence many women prefer to go with this option as they are more affordable. Also, they are the ideal choice for water environment as they tend to get dry faster than leather which makes them totally reliable and comfortable for walking.
These are obviously the best choice when you are planning for some adventure like hiking or you have got plans where you have to walk the long distance.
Straps of the footwear
For your comfort, you have to consider this thing as well. Make sure that you choose the right straps so that you can accommodate your feet’s dimensions. It is important as the wrong straps will make you itchy and even lead to the formation of abrasions and blisters.
Flexibility and feet support
This is yet another important aspect that should not be overlooked. As per the ideal structure, the forefoot of the footwear should be flexible while the mid food should be stiff so as to provide stability over how our foot moves while we walk.
Also, the sandal will automatically be more comfortable when backed by cushioning in the insole and midsole.
Selecting a pair of right sandal or footwear is not a “cakewalk”. So make sure you know about these things so that you can make the rational choice.
