The sneaker is probably one of the most versatile wardrobe staples you can buy. They're comfortable, stylish and complement everything from jeans and a tee to a summery dress.
With endless options available, it can be hard to know which sneaker is right for you.
Here, we’ve put together a guide to help you decide.
#1. Measure your feet before you buy
The shape of your feet can change over time so it's important to measure your feet before you purchase your sneakers. This is especially important if you're shopping online — be sure to check the size guide on the website and compare your measurements before clicking "add to cart".
#2. Consider what you'll be using your sneakers for
Finding the perfect sneaker depends on what you're buying them for. A sneaker for running will be very different to a sneaker for fashion, so make sure to have a think about what you need your sneakers for and do some research before committing to a purchase.
#3. Find a sneaker that matches the shape of your foot
Whether your foot is narrow, wide or regular, it is important to pick sneakers that are designed specifically for your foot shape.
Make sure you check product descriptions and customer reviews while shopping — feedback from fellow customers might be the tipping point between "add to cart" and "abandon cart".
#4. Try your shoes on at the end of the day
At the end of the day, your feet will be slightly bigger from all the walking and standing around you've been doing, so we recommend waiting until late in the day to try on a pair of sneakers.
You can visit one of our stores across the east coast of Australia to try on a pair of sneakers, ugg boots or even slides! Find a store near you here.
