Anytime we buy shoes, we must make sure we get the best possible fit. There are more than a few tips on getting a good fit and over the years I have blogged about them and included them in every edition of Fixing Your Feet.

It’s one thing to read a list of tips. It’s quite another to see an infographic that shows in pictures and text, the same information. So in this post I am sharing an infographic courtesy of Walsh Brothers Shoes. Spend a few minutes looking at the images and reading the explanations, and then check out the Walsh Brothers Shoes website. They are located in Ireland and have a wide assortment of casual to dress shoes, boots, sandals, and more. They also have a blog that is worth reading.

If this infographic helps you understand how to find shoes that don’t hurt, you are ahead of the game. Thanks to Paula Casey from Walsh Brothers Shoes.
