Check your arch type prior to buying athletic shoes. They will not fit on every arch. Try wetting the bottom of your foot and stepping on a piece of white paper. You’ll see what arch type you have with the imprint. If you have flat arches then the whole footprint will show. If you can’t see the middle, then you have a high arch. This can allow you to get a more comfortable fit from the shoe.
Don’t trust that you’ll be able to “break in” a pair of shoes. You’ll hear lots of sales people say that a pair of shoes will feel fine when broken in. That really is rarely the case.

Walk around in those shoes before purchasing them. Walk a couple of laps around the shoe store to ensure that they fit as well as they do when you are sitting. You are sure to notice any rubbing. You’ll save a lot of money and grief if you do this before you commit to a pair of new shoes.
