Did you know that the sneaker industry is worth $78 billion? Buying shoes comes with limitless options. There are so many types, brands, materials, and colors to choose from, it can be confusing. You want to make the right decision to protect your feet and arch, but you don’t want something extremely expensive, either.


This article can help you make an educated decision by reviewing and breaking down the top key factors you should consider when buying sneakers.

1. Fit

Fit is important, but it’s also one of the most overlooked aspects of how to buy sneakers. A shoe that fits well will last much longer than one that doesn’t, so it’s worth taking a few minutes to try on several sizes at the store before making your purchase.

When trying on a shoe, make sure that your toes don’t touch the end of the shoe. If your foot slides around in the shoe, it’s too big. You should also be able to move your feet from side to side and back and forth without feeling restricted.

If your foot is too small for the shoe, it will rub against the sides of your feet and cause blisters. If you have narrow or wide feet, try on shoes in different widths so you can find a pair that fits comfortably.

2. Support

If you’re going for athletic shoes, with a pair of sneakers like the Nike Tuned 3, then support is essential because it helps prevent injury during physical activity. Athletic sneakers have shock absorption capabilities that help reduce the impact on your joints and muscles during exercise. This is so that you don’t get injured as easily while playing sports or running around town all day long with friends.

If you’re looking for a casual shoe, then support is not as important because you’re probably not going to be doing any serious physical activity. However, if you like to walk around or play some sports occasionally, then it’s still a good idea to get shoes with some kind of support system built in.

3. Brand

There are hundreds of brands out there, all with their unique styles and variety of colors and materials available. Some brands are known for their quality while others for their affordability or uniqueness.

Look into which brands would best suit the style of your new shoes. If you’re looking for something that will last and hold up well, it’s best to get sneakers from a reputable brand. You should also consider the price and quality of each brand before deciding which one is right for you.

4. Style

Are you looking for something classic or something more modern? Do you want a pair that will go with everything in your closet or something more specific? Think about how often you’ll wear them and what they’ll be used for before deciding on a style.

Are you looking for something to wear around the house or something more formal? If you’re just looking for a comfortable pair of shoes that will go with everything, then any style will do. If you’re looking for a pair of shoes to wear more often than not, it’s best to get ones that can wear with different outfits.

5. Color

You don’t have to stick with one color. Different colors can help make outfits pop or add an interesting twist when paired with other clothing items like pants and shirts.

If you’re not sure what color to get, consider your wardrobe and how often you’ll be wearing them. Will they go with everything? Do you want a pair of shoes you can wear on casual days or something more formal?

Stick to neutral colors like black, brown, and navy. You can easily wear them with any outfit without standing out too much so that you don’t have to worry about matching them with other items in your wardrobe.

6. Material

The type of material used in making a sneaker can affect its durability and other features, such as breathability, flexibility, etc. For example, leather sneakers are more durable than canvas ones but offer less flexibility compared to canvas sneakers which are more flexible but less durable than leather ones.

So, how can you choose the right material for your preferred style and purpose? If you’re looking for a pair of sneakers that will last longer, go with leather. But if flexibility is what you need most, then canvas shoes are the best option.

7. Laces

The most common type of sneaker lace is flat, but you can also find laces that are round or square. Round laces are more comfortable and easier to tie, but they take up more space in your shoe. Flat laces are less flexible, but they’re easier to tie because you can use a simple overhand knot.

Laces come in different widths and lengths. Wider laces are more comfortable, but they don’t hold as well and slip out more easily. Narrower laces hold better and don’t sag as much when they’re loose, but they’re less comfortable in the long run since they dig into your ankles when they’re too tight.

8. Comfort

Another factor to consider when buying sneakers is comfort. The last thing you want to do is spend money on a pair of shoes that aren’t comfortable at all.

So, when looking at different brands and styles, make sure they’re comfortable enough for you to wear all day long, feeling no discomfort. It’s worth spending extra money on a pair of sneakers that provide maximum comfort so that your feet don’t hurt after wearing them for too long.

Buying Sneakers: These Are the Things You Have to Consider

After you have done all your research on the key factors to consider, it is time to make a well-informed decision when buying sneakers. And no matter how much research you do, there’s always that element of human error. For this reason, it’s vital to keep trying different sneakers until you finally find the one for you.
