Some people might wonder why anyone would want mismatched shoes, but if you are one of the millions of people who have feet of two different sizes, you know that you can not get a single pair of shoes and be comfortable. If you try to squeeze one of your feet into a too small sized shoe that fits your other foot perfectly, you could be inviting trouble. Bunions and calluses can appear from wearing a shoe which is too tight. A shoe too loose on one of your feet can lead to blisters from the shoe's constant movement. If your feet have such a wide difference in size that you can not be comfortable in a matched pair, you may need to look to the Internet for any of the many shoe retailers who cater to those who require mismatched shoes.
Buying shoes on the Internet does not need to be difficult. You simply need to know the length and width of both of your feet. Stores based on the Internet often have exceptional customer service and the majority of them will exchange an ill-fitting pair if you discover that they are not comfortable when they arrive at your home. There are many ways to learn your exact shoe size, but you need to be careful in how you measure your foot, no matter what course you take.
After you have been standing all day, your feet will likely be swollen. One measuring option would be to use a foot scale at a shoe store to record the width and length of both of your feet. The shoe salesperson should understand that you want to measure both of your feet since many people have mismatched feet. Another choice you have is to get a friend to trace your barefoot on a piece of paper. Then use a ruler to record the length and width. Compare these numbers with the shoe size charts which are common on many of the Internet shoe store web sites.
After you have ordered your mismatched shoes, do not forget to get socks as well. If you try to wear even a well-fitting pair of shoes without socks you might feel the pain of blisters in a short amount of time. Once your new mismatched shoes arrive, try them on and enjoy the comfort you have by wearing a pair of shoes best suited for you.
