Get a Great Fit for Your Shoes

To get a great and perfect fit for your shoes, it is advised to have a proper tracing of one of your feet. Trace one foot with a pencil or a marker by placing the foot on a piece of paper. It is better to let somebody else do the tracing, as you may find it uncomfortable to do the tracing on your own. Once the tracing is done, mark the length and width by drawing straight lines that touch the outermost points, vertically and horizontally. If you measure these lines with a scale or a tape, you will get the length and width of your feet. To get the right measurement, please note that your feet must be in use for several hours. The feet expand with continuous exercise and contract when in rest for long. Take the measurement in standing position. These steps would ensure a perfect fit for your shoes.
