Did you know that most men are wearing the wrong size shoe? It’s true – we hate to say it gents, but most of you are scaling up the way, or not buying the correct width for your feet.

While it might make you feel better, your feet will feel much more comfortable if you took the time to measure (or better yet, get an expert to measure) your feet properly and determine once and for all what size you are. We’d like to remind you about Robinson’s Shoes expert shoe fitting service, and the dangers of wearing shoes that don’t fit you.

Robinson’s Shoes have been in business for over 60 years, so believe us when we say we know a thing or two about ill-fitting shoes. There are a number of foot complaints you might experience when your shoes are too tight – and this a problem more common with women than men. Tight shoes can lead to bunions, corns and hammer toe syndrome – all of which are toe deformities, and can be easily avoided with shoes that fit properly. Wearing shoes that are too big (this time, men are more likely to do this than women), can also lead to similar foot trouble, with socks often rubbing on your foot, leading to blisters and sores that could become infected.

Help is at hand though, in the form of the expert shoe fitting service which Robinson’s Shoes offers free to each and every customer. We want our customers to enjoy wearing their new shoes for as long as possible, so we’re only satisfied when we know you’re wearing the right size. Our shoe fitting service will help you get a fit that is as close to bespoke as possible, with a personalised fitting to help you discover the most comfortable shoes you’ll ever own. This personal fitting advice is available between the hours of 9am - 5.30 pm in our Carrickfergus store, or if this doesn’t suit you, you can refer to our Robinson’s Shoes Size Conversion Guide.

We’ve also created this two minute shoe fitting guide video to help you measure your feet at home, in case you’re unsure about picking the right size shoes from our impressive range of luxury handmade shoes from brands like Barker, Loakes, Alfred Sargent and more.

As always we’re on hand to answer any questions you might have, so feel free to get in touch any time. Once you’ve found the right size for you, you’ll never look back!
