Online shopping has gone from a weird thing to do to an everyday thing to do. People buy online everything these days, including shoes. But buying high heels online can quickly turn ugly if you don’t pay attention to some details.

As with anything you buy online, first take a good look at the online store, especially when you don’t know it and have found it though an ad, web search or in the social networks. Check their rules and terms, the details about shipping and etc.

Keep in mind that a common tactic for online merchants with bad intentions is to give seemingly low prices for the products but then charge more for the shipping thus covering the difference and then some. Happily there are also a lot of honest online shops that put pride in their work and it won’t be that difficult to find them.

But now onto the most important part

Buying high heels online

While in most cases clothes can be adjusted and fitted after purchase, the same can’t be said for shoes, especially high heels. Yes, you may be able to stretch them a tiny bit, but getting the right size is essential. First and foremost check the chosen online store their policy about returns and/or exchanges of shoes that have been ordered in the wrong size.

Next up, don’t rush on the first decent price you see. There are lots of other online shops, so you may find the desired pair cheaper or in a wider selection of siezes. There are also comparison websites that will scour some online shops and show you all of their deals at one place.

Measure your feet before buying high heels online. All selfrespecting online shops have their size charts put up by which they measure their shoes. Use them to pick the size according to you.

If you have doubts always send an email to the shop staff and ask them for extra information. If they are polite enough they may even measure your desired pair espacially for you and tell you whether you need to go a size up or down.

Also ask them for information about returns or exchanges when buying heels on special offers. Usually these types of deals have some extra conditions like no returns for example. Basically remember to be smart, careful and patient when buying high heels online. And always know your exact size and adjust the measures in accordance with the given stores size chart.
