This Is The Best Time Of Day To Try On Heels

Heels are a tricksy item of clothing. You might pop to the high street on Saturday morning and find a pair that fits, only to put them on later and discover they’re actually too tight.

It happens time and time again, and makes us feel like we have freakish size-changing feet - but apparently, there’s an answer, and that’s what time of day you try shoes on.

Celebrity podiatrist Dr. Sanford Weitzbuch told Who What Wear that there is an optimum time of day for trying on heels.

He said: “It’s much better to shop for shoes later in the day, because blood circulation changes due to being on your feet or in tight shoes causes swelling.

“If you buy shoes first thing in the day, your foot may swell later on and the shoe will not fit well. If you shoe shop later in the day, it will still fit fine in the morning and be comfortable throughout the day. 

“Shopping for shoes anytime after 4pm should account for swelling”.

After 4pm, you say? I think we’ve got our next after-work activity sorted out, then.
