How do you choose boots? – Here are the things to keep in mind:

– It is important that the trainer feels comfortable from scratch. Start measuring your shoes and try the nearby ones. The one that is most convenient for you is the chosen one.

– You must choose a boot that the foot goes through to the end, without any effort or pain during its insertion.

– Keep a certain space between the thumb and the end of the boot.

– A boot that bends easily fits only for pedestrians. Those who need mountain boots or walking in the snow – choose a boot that does not bend even when you apply pressure (see demo in the attached video).

– Invest in a good boot, even if it costs a little more – a used boot for many more years, and choosing a cheap product will lead to a short life span and a breath of mind in using it.
