Shoes, shoes, and more shoes. We simply can’t get enough of them! But with so many brands and styles to choose from, how do we narrow down our choices? Here’s a five-tip guide when choosing the best shoes for you!
👠 Quality. Quality. Quality
Yes, we repeated the word thrice because we cannot emphasize quality enough. Sure there are a lot of cheaper alternatives but are they durable enough? Will they protect your feet? Shoes, in a way, are an investment. If you get a pair with premium quality, they will last longer and will provide the kind of support, comfort, and protection that your feet need throughout the day.
The quality of shoes is further boosted by excellent workmanship. If you have premium materials and expert workmanship, that’s the sweet spot any shoe-holic aspires. One important key indicator of good quality is proper stitching bout outside the shoe and inside.
👟 Practicality and Versatility
You can’t just splurge on shoes knowing that you’ll only wear them once unless you’re a celebrity with an unlimited resource of shoes. If you’re just like us who meticulously plan which pair goes with each outfit, it’s essential to find a pair that allows you to go from a formal event to an informal one. Such versatility is definitely rewarding on the practical side of things.
Keeping these tips in mind, it doesn’t come as a surprise the Grenson shoes continue to be a well-respected name in the shoe industry. Established in the late 1800s (yup, that’s TWO CENTURIES AGO), it started out as a home business which gradually grew over the years until it became the multi-million dollar shoe company that it is today!
They are known for the technique called “Goodyear Welted.” The main feature of this signature shoemaking technique is for the upper to be stitched to a leather band called a Welt. This leather band is then stitched to the sole. This explains why Grenson shoes are synonymous to strength, durability, versatility, quality, and class.
