How to Get the Right Fit from Your Men's Loafer Shoes

Guide on How to Get the Right Fit from Your Men's Loafer Shoes

Measure your foot.
The Brannock device is the tool that is used to measure your foot to determine your shoe size. This will give you an idea of the size shoe that you need. From that size it may be necessary to increase or decrease the size by a half or even whole size. The Brannock will give you a very close idea of the size shoe that you need. Just make sure that you use a device that is gender appropriate because men's sizes and women's sizes are different.

Sizes vary between brands.
Always make sure that you try on your shoes before you buy them. Sizes vary between brands so while you may wear a 10 in one brand you may take a 10 ½ or even an 11 in another brand. Some designer brands seem to run a little smaller and if you are shopping at discount stores you may be getting factory "seconds" which means that the product did not quite meet the factory standards for sale at a top name outlet. They may be irregular and run larger or smaller than the stamped size. Always try on just to be sure.

Shop for shoes at the end of the day.
The best time to shop for shoes is at the end of the day. This is when your feet are at their largest because they are slightly swollen. Also, most people's right foot is slightly larger than their left, so keep this in mind when trying on shoes. It is wise to try on both shoes, not just one. This is particular significant when you are purchasing closed in shoes like men's loafer shoes.

Make sure that your foot fits properly in the shoe.
Make sure that the ball of your foot fits snugly, but not too tightly, in the ball pocket of the shoe. The ball pocket is the widest part of the shoe.

Don't buy shoes that don't quite fit, hoping that they will stretch.
If you try on shoes and they are too tight or feel too short, try another size or another brand. Do not buy them hoping that they will stretch out because chances are they won't. Shoes do not stretch lengthwise and the way shoes are made nowadays they are not likely to stretch out. If your toe hits the end of the shoe while you walk, it is too short. Try the next size.

Don't get shoes that slip too much on your heel.
You want minimal slippage on your heel. If it slips too much, you will either walk right out of them or you will get blisters. Neither is a very attractive feature for a pair of shoes, no matter how great they look. When shopping for men's loafer shoes, make sure that they slip very little on the heel.

Walk around to make sure that you have the perfect fit.
Finally, the best way to know for sure if your shoes fit is to walk in them. Walk around a little to check for heel slippage, tightness and to make sure that they are not too short. It is very important to make sure that your shoes fit.
