Shoe Buying Tips for Expectant Moms
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself shopping for larger shoes if you are an expectant mom. Do yourself a favor and find shoes with extra support and comfort since your center of gravity is contently shifting during pregnancy as your weight increases.
- Avoid high heels while you are expecting, choose a broad-based 1-2″ stacked heel instead, Famous Footwear has a wide selection of stylish shoes for dressy or the office.
- Choose a square or round toe shoe, not pointy-toed shoes.
- Buy a running sneaker instead of a walking or athletic shoe for better shock absorption.
- If you normally wear a wide width, buy men’s shoes in an equivalent size since they are cut wider.
- Shop late in the day since your feet swell as the day goes on.
- Try the shoes on in the store, it is a myth that you can “break in” shoes.
- When buying boots, pick a pair with room to grow in the calf area, as your calves may swell – choose a side zipper instead of a pull-on style.
