  Advice  

  • We recommend buying shoes from places you are familiar with to avoid buying the incorrect size.


  • If you are trying out a new place, read customer reviews & ratings to help you determine the durability of a pair of shoes.


  • Check the sizing guides provided in each website and compare those to shoes you have at home.


  • Read the refund & exchange policies before purchasing in case you didn't find your right fit.
