I wonder whether other people think about the process behind buying shoes. I've had some recent thoughts on the subject I thought my share them with you now.
The way in which we buy shoes has clearly changed in recent years, with the Internet having an increasing impact. More and more of us are looking to buy our shoes online and this trend looks set to continue in future years.
So how have you adapted to these changes in buying habits? Have you even thought about them? Possibly not!
We live in the middle of the technological revolution and yet few of us stop to think about its consequences. We may like the idea of making savings online, but are we really spending less? When it comes to shoes, we might well ask ourselves whether we are getting hold of the bargains we're looking for.
I used to be obsessed with the way in which shoes looked. In recent years I've come to realise that comfort is at least as important as appearance. That doesn't mean that it's not important to me to look good, but it's clear that my feet have to be comfortable in whatever I choose to wear.
I bet I'm not alone in spending far too much time thinking about the way that shoes look. This time would be much better spent thinking about whether my feet are comfortable and whether the shoes I'm buying are really built to last.
If you see a pair of shoes and think that they are an absolute bargain then you need to be certain that they're of the required quality.
Shoes are not really a bargain simply because they're cheap. If you end up having to replace them every few months then are you really making savings? I'd suggest that what you're really looking at is a false economy.
That's why I always look for shoes that are well made and comfortable. Of course, the price still has to be right!
