Finding The Right Sandals For Your Feet

Warmer weather is right around the corner, which means you'll soon be able to put those boots in storage and start slipping on sandals again. If you know you will need a new pair this year, there are a few tips that can help you find something comfortable and stylish.

 

 

1. Pick Something With Support

 
Fashion shouldn't take precedence over comfort. Think about when you will be wearing the sandals and what you will be doing. Any footwear you buy should have the right amount of support for your feet. For example, if you plan to go hiking, look for sandals with a closed toe. If you enjoy camping, a waterproof pair of sandals may be just what you are looking for. Certainly, the appearance of the shoe is important, but what you are going to be doing in the sandals is more important.
 
 
2. Choose Quality
 
There are a lot of sandals out there that are available at a very good price. However, you are just throwing your money away if you don't buy quality. Before you know it, you'll need another pair, which is why you should have just spent a little more to start with. Find a good shoe that will last you, even if it costs a bit more than some other options.
 
 
3. Get Arch Support
 
This has been mentioned indirectly, but it is important to have good foot support in any sandal that you buy. Sandals that are very inexpensive are often not made of good materials. That means your feet are getting the brunt of it as you walk. If you think you will use your sandals often, make sure you get something with good arch support so you don't have to worry about your feet. Orthotic sandals can be a good help.

 

 

 
 
4. Look For Heel Cushioning
 
If there isn't cushioning on the heel of your sandals, your feet are prone to injuries when you step on something hard, like a stone. This is unfortunately a common problem with sandals. Not all brands have padding, particularly if the sandal is inexpensive. You can determine if the cushioning is appropriate by pressing your thumb down in the heel. If there isn't any give there, find something else.
 
 
5. Research Online
 
Look into different brands of sandals before you make a final decision. Internet reviews can be very helpful as you try and determine whether a particular product is well made or not. Also, if you have any questions, you can often find the answers in the reviews.
