Buying shoes online can be a good way to reduce the cost of purchasing footwear. Online shoe shops do not have the same overheads as regular high street stores, and they often pass the savings they make onto their customers, bringing down the price you pay for the shoes. Often, buying shoes online is a good way of sourcing shoes that the shops have sold out of, or that are rare and unavailable anywhere except online. If, for example, you are looking for wide fitting or narrow fitting shoes, very specialist shoes for dance or sport, or some designer vintage shoes, it can be useful to have a look at what is available online, as you are likely to find what you are looking for.

The advantage of doing some searching for shoes online is that you don’t have to traipse around the shops looking for shoes that you don’t even know exist yet, as you can just search from the comfort of your own home. If you are looking for specialist sports shoes, for example, you can research all about them online and then find a regular store that sells them near you. Or you could go the whole way and buy the shoes themselves from an online store.
You can purchase basically any style of shoe online, from clogs to ballet shoes, trainers to designer sandals. Another benefit of searching online for shoes is that you can compare lots of different stores and prices, variations in style, colour or brand, and it doesn’t really matter where in the world the shoe is coming from. You could compare a shoe from the next town with one from ten thousand miles away - the internet really makes distances so much shorter and the world seem like a very small place.
Once you have found the shoes you wish to buy, make sure you check that the store ships to your country, and check how much the postage will be. There isn’t much point saving $10 on a pair of shoes you could have walked into town to buy if the postage will cost you $15.
Lastly: Be aware of your shoe size equivalent in other countries
When you are buying shoes online you need to make sure that you know your international shoe size equivalent if you end up buying from a store in another part of the world.
