Invest in quality shoes – Not every man can afford to spend a lot on his shoes; however, Investing in quality shoes that lasts longer is preferable to buying new inferior shoes every few years. This is never a winning strategy, as low quality footwear is held together with glue and made with cheap raw materials such as cardboard and paper that does not age well. You can save money in the long term by buying more expensive shoes that lasts long.
Never sacrifice proper fit and comfort – buy the right shoe size, even if this means paying a bit more from a well-known store. The assistance of a experienced shoe sales assistant is invaluable in a shoe store.
