It can often times seem daunting to buy shoes online for fear that the size may not be the perfect fit but with these helpful tips and shoe size chart you can ensure that you get the right fit every time when buying shoes online.
Finding the Right Size
While most women buying shoes online will already know their approximate shoe size others may be unsure. As we grow up our shoe size changes. Our feet can become longer and flatter as we age so it is always good to check up on our size one in a while. For the longest time I was a size six and a half then one day I was trying on shoes and realized that a six and a half no longer fix properly and that a size seven was more appropriate for my feet.
You can checkup on your shoe size by either going to a shoe store where they will use a scale (Brannock device) to measure your feet or alternatively if you have someone to help you out you can use a standard tape measure to find your ideal shoe size.

Once you find a pair of shoes that you love online it is helpful to check out the manufacturers shoe size chart so you can get an idea if their shoes run large or small.
Shoe Ratings and Buyer Comments
Some online shoe sites such as designer shoe warehouse have a section where shoe buyers can rate the shoes based on factors such as if the size runs short, long or if the width runs narrow or wide. This is very helpful to me because my feet tend to run a little bit wider and it is harder to make sure the shoes will fit my width when purchasing shoes online.
If the page with the shoes you like have a reviews or comments section it is always helpful to check it out to see what other shoe shoppers thought of the shoes after they purchased them and have had a chance to wear them.
