HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW COULD THE SHOES YOU BOUGHT FROM A WELL-LOVED BRANDNAME NOT DELIVER AMAZING RESULTS THAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS HEARD OF?
Pamojo thinks we all need to take a step back and break down what really are the factors that make a pair of shoes truly comfortable and then appreciate the beauty of making an informed purchase.
In fact, the degree of 'Comfort' of a single pair of shoes can be scientifically gauged by 16 individual steps by SATRA (Shoe and Allied Trades Research Association). Yes, that's right - SIXTEEN. We, Pamojo, see offering our customers the best-looking yet comfortable shoes as the top priority so we exclusively stamp the SUPERSOFT™️ print on our shoes a.k.a. our Pamojo-certified comfort assurance.
Now, we are going to simplify them down for you to 3 key main points you may look out for in your new shoes. This guide comes with expert's tips and tricks to test if the pair in your hands are a good catch.
1. SIZE ALWAYS MATTER
Our feet vary vastly in lengths, width and arch and the same shoe size may vary due to manufacturing and materials. It is not easy to find the match, especially you do online shopping.
You would want to allow a substantial extra room of 5/8" between the longest toe and the shoe toe cap/ shoe tip - approximately one thumb width - for comfort. Moreover, your feet do swell up in the afternoon due to standing and walking for ample hours so it is then the perfect time to take measurements of your foot dimensions.
Another good practice while shopping online is only to shop at secured sites with clear exchange policies like Pamojo.com to ditch the worries of failing to have your best-fitting shoes (Check out our exchange policies here).
2. STABILITY SPEAKS
The balance between the rigidity of shoes and the arch of your feet attribute to many hours of comfort you get while standing for work. Feet with higher arch (rigid) would feel more comfy in shoes with soft and flexible cushioned insoles while straighter feet (less rigid) would need a more rigid shoe-bed in order to stay comfy all day. Neither is there something wrong in the shape of your feet and shoe design quality. It is actually the question of what complements your shape to achieve comfort.
Try twisting the shoes to test the rigidity of the shoes or looking at the heel counter - the curvier the heel counter, the higher the arch, the more rigid the shoes. The last resort for this can be the help from arch support inserts.
3. STYLE - THE ZEN FACTOR
Let's face it. You won't wear it if it does not look decent, no matter how hard it is to find your best fitting size. Sometimes what decides the comfort is not anything done to your feet but your mind.
Always, ALWAYS buy a pair of shoes that you like or vision yourself looking smart while having on. A pair of your taste would automatically help you feel good.
