When is the best time to try on and buy a new pair of shoes?

Is there an optimal time of day to buy a new pair of shoes?

Shopping for shoes is best done in the afternoon, when your feet have swollen a little. Then you can be sure that your new shoes will fit your feet at all times, and don't pinch.

When trying on new shoes, make sure you stand up and walk about in them to check how supportive and comfortable they are. Try both shoes on as most people tend to have one foot larger than the other. Therefore you are better to get a pair that fits the larger foot, since shoes are only sold in matched sizes.

The feet can be one of the most indicative signs of an individual's health. Earlysymptoms for diabetes, arthritis and circulatory problems can often show themselves initially in the feet.
