for you? We went to the mall today when my youngest daughter complains because her toes was aching coz her old shoes are quite small, for her feet cannot fit the shoes anymore. She used it for alomost a year before the shoes are retiring and for course her feet are getting bigger. And when we are on the shoe store we spent a hour just for fiting and choosing what she really like's best. Me of course I choose what is durable, nice and affordable. We got to long because sometimes she already choose whats she really want but there is no sizes available, or it is the last pair. And after an hour of walk and turn we finally found the best shoes for her... How about you guys how long does you take in fitting and choosing the best shoes for you?

I am tall and my feet is longer so I cannot buy shoe from store because will either loose or tight. So I make shoes in local shop with pure leather. It is soft and much comfort fit to wear and lasts longer period. When I go for marketing fish, vegetables, my shoe become wet as such markets in our country always keep wet with water and mud. Though my shoe do not damage. When heavy raining in our capital city huge water flows over it and I walk through this water then my shoes full with water and wet then I dry it on gas cooker with mild heat though my shoes do not become hard. I think pure leather shoes more comfortable and can use in odd situation. Regular polishing with shoe cream keep shoes comfortable use and shining. I heared Italian shoes are costly in the world and most comfortable due to its leather processing technology. Our country is rich for pure leather as every day we cut cow and buffalo for eating meat and huge leather is getting from them. It is wise to select best shoes for use as it is our daily companinon.

I take considerable time to select my shoes..they should be comfortable and cosy. Longer time is required to select...because I have to wear the shoes for 10-12 hours, when going to office...so they need to be comfortable.

Not long, since I know my size, all I have to do is pick out the color and style I want.

I'm a simple shopper.. i see, i like, i buy (if it's affordable for me).. but when it comes to shoes.. i have a little bit of a problem. The thing is, the length usually fits me, but because my feet are wide, it's usually tight at the sides. Elephant feet my mom calls them. So i have to refrain from buying court shoes, pumps, stilletos.. i have to stick with sandals and wedges, where my sides are not confined.

We buy the shoes and sandals at METRO - a german wholesale. Selecting the size takes a few minutes, but we buy lots of things at this store and hence collecting all of them in a troley and getting it billed takes more than 2 hours. But it is worth because the shoe prices are really cheap.
