Shopping like a pro: tips, tricks and tools of the trade
Whether your feet are large ( holler if you wear a size 42 or more! ) or wide, these are the things to bear in mind for an online shoe shopping experience that delivers:
- Know how to measure your feet - Sizing is often inconsistent across brands. Conversion guides can help but nailing your measurements is crucial. Measure your feet by placing them on white paper and tracing the outline with a pencil. Most people have one foot slightly bigger than the other, so make sure to trace both. You can then match your foot length in inches or cm to each brand’s sizing. Please see our size guide for more detailed information about how to measure your feet.
- Zoom in on the image - Most online brands will display an image of a model showcasing the pair. Have a good look at the picture. It’s a leap of the imagination but be realistic about whether or not it's a shoe that you would actually wear.
- Materials - Read the description carefully when it comes to materials. All our shoes are made with the highest quality leather uppers and linings. That means a material that is breathable and supple enough to accommodate the natural size fluctuations that your feet undergo daily. Know the materials you want and search for those in the product description.
- Ask questions – At Sante + Wade we have an ‘open door’ policy with regards to our customers. Feel free to send us emails and ask any questions you may have about our products. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible with the answers. It’s important to brand owners to know that we are meeting the needs of our customers because we understand that once you’ve found your perfect pair, the last thing you want to do is send them back.
For shoes that are as unique as you are, Sante + Wade has your back. Sexy, sassy shoes that actually fit.
