TIP: When shopping for new shoes, always shop at the end of the day when feet are at their largest, and look for the following:
Good fit; comfortably loose when worn with soft, absorbent socks
Shaped like the foot; broad and spacious in the toe area
Shock-absorbent sole; a low wedge type is best; avoid high heels
Breathable material; canvas or leather, not plastic
Comfortable the moment you put them on
Bottom line: If new shoes need to be “broken in,” it means either they were not properly designed or not properly fitted to your feet.
