When you are trying on shoes, generally you should have about a half-inch of space between your longest toe and the heel counter. As you try them on pinching the toe is a common practice, but you should also slide an index finger behind your heel. If it doesn’t fit, go a size up; if it slides into the shoe easily, you should probably drop a half- to full-size.

Here are a few tips you can use when buying your next pair of shoes.
- Shop for shoes at the end of the day when your feet have already expanded.
- Wear the same type of sock that you’ll be wearing the shoe you are shopping for. FYI: A thick sock or thin dress sock can influence the fit more than you think.
- Width is often as important as length, so make sure the shoe fits in every direction.
- If you fall in love with a pair that’s slightly too big, try them on with insoles.
