We all wear our shoes everyday to everywhere we go. They act like our buddy protecting our feet from harm and making sure we can get to where we are going safely. That being said, most people still overlook the importance of a good pair of shoes in our daily life. Sure you can find a pair of shoe anywhere and some are too cheap to even pass on. However, aside from its price, you also need to consider the quality of the shoes that you are going to buy. You need to remember that you will use it for years and it should withstand any kind of weather or situation.
I know I learned this the hard way when I used to buy cheap pairs of shoes. One day, I was late for work and I had to walk because the traffic was too heavy. While walking, it started drizzling and some streets had formed little puddles. I accidentally stepped on a puddle and the soles of my shoes just got separated from its body. It was such a horrible experience because I had no shoes and I was running late for work.
In the end, I had to go to the local department store to buy a new pair of shoes which cost more than I bargained for. Because of this experience, I never buy shoes that are not best for me and are not durable. No person deserves to go through the hassle of what I had to go through that day, so here are some shoes that might fit you perfectly.
