Typical mistakes when buying running shoes
When it comes to buying the perfect shoes such as men’s running shoes [รองเท้าวิ่ง ผู้ชาย, which are the term in Thai], a lot of us makes mistakes. We tend to look at the price and the design without considering the overall quality. Below are some of the common mistakes made when buying running shoes.
- Buying for looks – A lot of people are guilty about it. Many of us based our choice on the overall look of the shoes. Always remember that just because the shoes look cool does not necessarily mean they are the perfect choice. The overall feel and fit matter more than the looks.
- Buying the wrong size – Some people buy too fitting shoes thinking that it is cool while others go for shoes with allowances so that they can use it for the years to come. Remember that if the shoes are too tight fitting, it could lead to the development of blisters and black toenails. If it too big, you will feel uncomfortable wearing it. Buy shoes that are half an inch of your exact size. That way, there is ample room for your feet and toes to move.
- Not asking for deals – running shoes, especially the high-quality ones are a bit expensive. It would not hurt if you are going to ask for any discounts. Some stores, especially specialty stores offer 10% to 20% discounts. If luck is on your side, you could avail up to 50% discount.
- Shopping at the wrong time of the day – The perfect time to buy for shoes is in the evening. Why? Well, your feet swell in the morning and continue to do so until the afternoon. Buying at nighttime ensures that you will get the right size. Do not assume shoe size. It is always best to wait for the perfect time, which is the evening.
