FitFlop - What's all the Fuss?

FitFlop Cha Cha FlamePrior to my FitFlop days, I used to think it was a bit over the top to call them ‘caffeine for your feet’. I always wondered how people could be so wholeheartedly and almost ‘religiously’ into a shoe brand. (Maybe I was being a bit harsh because my feet practically live in the shoe heaven here at Bstore.)

But now I finally get it, once you get addicted to the FitFlop feeling, there’s no go back.

Birkenstock Regular or Narrow



A shoe should always fit snug, whether it is regular fit shoes or narrow fit shoes. As a smart consumer, you should always make an effort to find the right shoe. The size of your shoe depends on what brand you want. European and American shoe sizing can often be challenging! If you have no idea about European or American shoe sizes, you might go home with a shoe that does not fit well. You should ask a customer service person if the shoes follow either European or American sizing, keeping in mind US sizing is the same as our very own Australian sizing. That way, you can have an accurate choice before you make the purchase.

Picking the right pair of ladies boots is important when you are dealing with wet cold weather. You want to make sure that the boots can handle being rained on, and you can splash through puddles. You also want to make sure that the shoes are going to help you safely walk on slippery surfaces.

If the wet weather in your area tends to be cold as well as wet, consider lined boots that will help protect your feet from being cold and wet. If your weather is typically warm and humid, consider boots that allow your feet to breath while still protecting them.

Top Picks For Autumn in the City

Miz Mooz Ankle Boots AW2015

 

Autumn is the cosiest season; everything seems softer, warmer and richer. Chilly mornings and foggy days make it a pleasure to wrap up a little more, but they also mean it's time to put away the sandals you’ve lived in all summer. Dressing for the cooler weather can be tricky. You have as much chance of a misty, dark day as one of brilliant sunshine, and while some people are lighting the fireplace for the first time, others are still sweltering. There's rain, and there’s wind that shakes the leaves off the trees and sends them skipping along the pavement. You'll need a good selection of autumn shoes to help you navigate around puddles and take you from warm days to cooler nights.
