What to focus on while identifying a correct shoe?

Ratings and reviews by the customers are vital in identifying original shoes. Online sites like Amazon and Flipkart etc allow users to write comments about their product and their post-purchase experience.

So it is highly recommended to read the reviews when buying shoes online.

Selecting the proper fitting size is very important when it comes to buying footwear. Whether you are buying online or offline make sure to measure your foot size. Wearing unfitted shoes may lead to serious foot injuries.
