How To Choose A Pair of Boots

When you buy a pair of boots there are a few things you need to think about, so that you buy a pair that suit you, are comfortable and will last. Make sure that you buy a good quality pair of boots even if that means spending a little extra money.

The most important consideration when buying a pair of boots is where you plan to wear them. If you work in construction, a warehouse or a factory the pair of boots you buy should include safety features such as anti-slip soles and steel toecaps. If you plan to use your boots mainly for walking, the boots you buy need to be made of thick hard-wearing materials such as leather, which are also supple. The soles need to be thick yet flexible, with good grip.

If you have flat feet, high arches, bunions or unusually wide feet make sure that you take those conditions into account, so that you do not end up a pair of boots that makes things worse. Only buy boots that are made of breathable material so that your feet do not get damp and become susceptible to fungal diseases such as athletes’ foot. If the boots you like are not already waterproof treat them with a waterproofing spray before you wear them to ensure your feet always stay dry.

Make sure that you shop for your boots at the end of the day when your feet are at their largest. During the day, your feet gradually swell. If you buy your boots in the summer do not forget to try them on with the type of socks you normally wear in the winter. Put both boots on and lace them up completely then walk around the shop to make sure that your foot does not slip around inside the boots and feel comfortable.

When you buy new pair of boots spend a little extra and buy the polish or brushes that you need to look after them. Clean or polish your new boots each week, and talc the inside to absorb any sweat. Check the soles and heels when you clean them, as soon as you see any wear, get them repaired. Worn soles or heels can cause hard skin to form on your feet and back problems from walking lopsided.
