I Have Trouble Finding Shoes That Fit Well
Shoe-shopping with me is terrible (just ask Sherree). I'll try on a dozen different styles, and often don't find one that fits right. I don't have freaky, misshapen feet, but finding a pair that fits well always takes quite a while.
Boots always seem to fit fairly well. I think this is because they lace up higher, over my ankle. This holds my heel into the shoe's heel cup a little better than a low-top shoe does. I have a pair of Asolo boots that fit well. The EMS Boot Fitter tells me I probably have a narrow heel, and that's why my heel moves around a bit, which makes sense.
But for everyday wear, I prefer low-top shoes. Merrell's have always fit pretty well. The EMS Boot Fitter's results for narrow-heel and medium forefront-width support that Asolo and Merrell shoes should fit well.
But of course, I want to wear other shoes than just by those two companies.I've tried many others (The North Face, Timberland, Keen, Salomon, etc.) and had only limited success. Until others create a Boot Fitter guide like EMS has done, or manufacturers tell us more about what kind of feet their shoes will best fit, I guess I'm just left trying all of them on.
