Is there a certain time of day to buy shoes?

Our feet tend to change size during the day, so the time you go shoe shopping actually can make a difference when it comes to finding a proper, comfortable fit. The best time to try on shoes is toward the end of the day, during the late afternoon or early evening. Our feet typically swell throughout the day, and the later hours is when our feet are usually at their largest. That’s the best time to fit; otherwise, a shoe purchased in the morning might not feel so perfect later on. Also remember to measure both feet and to concentrate on fitting the one that is larger, if one is.

If you have more questions about how footwear applies to your foot health, Dr. Jennifer Keller and the staff of Shenandoah Podiatry can provide the answers you need. You can schedule an appointment with us by calling (540) 904-1458 for our Roanoke office.
