Selecting the Best Boot For You

There are a lot of options when it comes to picking out boots (and this series will show you that!), but finding the best boot for your foot is key. If a style doesn't fit your foot, try another! You are not limited when it comes to boot variety. Never try to stuff your foot into anything- you will just end up with more foot problems!
*Have feet measured, size can change throught life! Keep in mind- your boot size may not fit the same in all styles and brands.
*Try boots on in the afternoon- feet tend to swell during the day.
*Buy for the larger foot- most feet are not te exact same size.
*Carry an insole when boot shopping in case a pair lack the proper arch support.
*Boots should feel comfortable when tried on in the store, there shouldn't be a "break-in" period.
*A boot constructed of natural materials, like leather, will keep feet dry and comfortable during the winter months.
*Choose a boot with plenty of toe room, a firm heel counter, and traction to ensure stability.
