Time of Day

time-of-day-wearing-shoesMany people do not realize that there is a right time of day for buying shoes. Most people’s feet expand during the day, so it is best to go shopping for shoes in the afternoon or evening.

As you may have noticed, your shoes do feel tighter later in the day. Most people just assume that it is because they have had their shoes on all day and that their feet are tired, but it is actually due to the fact that the feet expand after you have spent some time on them.

With that being true, it means that for part of the day, your shoes are either going to be a little tight or a little loose. In this case, it is best to err on the side of them being a little loose in the morning rather than purchasing shoes that are going to be too tight by the afternoon.  It’s just a slight change in foot size, but it can make a big difference later on in the day.
