Portland Shoes

Portland Shoes The more you know about shoes, the better they are able to choose, and this article will explain some of the top factors you need to take into account when you are choosing a pair of Portland shoes.

1. Your wardrobe

This is largely determined by your taste, and whatever shoes you buy should be able to compliment several things in your wardrobe. Depending on how much money you have and how many other pairs of shoes you own, you may choose to buy shoes to wear just once for a particular occasion, but most people want something that they will wear more than that one time. Choose the shoes you like in a color that blends in with outfits in your wardrobe, paying particular attention to belts and bags that you use often.

2. Size

Any pair of Portland shoes that you choose should be able to fit without pinching, but many people do not know how to get just the right size. The best way to buy shoes Portland that will be comfortable is to buy at a time of the day when it is warm. The warmer your body gets, the more your blood vessels dilate and your feet will puff up a little. If you fit a shoe at this time and it fits well, that is the right size for you. It means that when it gets warmer, your shoes will be able to fit, so you have the best size. Check the toe area as well to make sure that your toes do not get squeezed.

3. Material

If you are buying shoes Portland, make sure to check that the material of the shoes you choose is sturdy. Pure leather is the best, with a rubber sole that will prevent slippage and that will also last longer. There are many imitations of original shoes and you will usually not know until you check the quality of the material. The best way to make sure that you get value for your Portland shoes is to buy at legitimate retailers who are supplied by well known brands.

4. Attachments

Many Portland shoes will have buckles, straps and other attachments. They need to be firm on the shoe, and it is a great guide for telling a good quality pair of shoes. If anything looks like it will fall off, the chances are that the shoe will come apart pretty quickly as well. Check the insoles to make sure that they are firmly attached some will come off with just a few uses leaving the shoe unusable or costing you money for repairs.

5. Your budget

Lastly, how much you are willing to spend will also dictate the kind of shoe that you are going to buy. High-end shoes, those that cost more than the average, will usually be of the best quality. This is not to mean that if a shoe is expensive it automatically qualifies as good. You need to do the rest of your homework here. If you do not have that much to spend, look at the available affordable Portland shoes and pick the best amongst them.

Basic Shoe Care Tips to Protect Your Fine Footwear Investment

You spent hours combing the shoe stores in Portland searching for the perfect pair of dress shoes and you finally found them. But how do you ensure that they remain looking great for as long as possible? Here are some tips for caring for them:

Use Shoe Trees – It may sound a little old fashioned but investing in good unvarnished shoe trees is still a must do. The varnished ones look swanky but they are not good at drawing moisture (sweat) out of the worn shoes, part of the purpose of a shoe tree in the first place. The crucial time to use shoe trees is right after they have been removed and they should remain in place for at least an hour or so. After that, the shoes will have returned to their natural architecture and the trees can be removed.

Wet Shoes – If you have been caught in an unexpected downpour and your precious shoes are soaking wet you need to act promptly if you are to save them from permanent damage. The best way to do that is stuff the wet shoes with newspaper and dry them away from direct heat. Direct heat often dries leather far too quickly causing them to crack – and nothing can save them if that happens. Before the shoes are completely dry insert the shoe trees to make sure that they return to their proper shoes.

Polish the Right Way – As the staff at any good shoe stores in Portland can tell you there is a right and a wrong way to polish your shoes. Before you begin, wipe off your shoes down with a damp (not wet) cloth to remove superficial dirt and stains. When applying the polish do so in a circular motion but there is no need to be gentle, the more you rub, the better. For extra shine, hold the shoe between your knees and buff the toe vigorously with a lint-free cloth.

Shoe Stores in Portland – Matching Quality with Style

For all the jokes about women and their shoe obsessions there are just was many men who understand the importance of a well-designed, well-made shoe to ensure that their chosen outfit for the day is complete. Gentlemen who watch their appearance know that a terrible pair of shoes can ruin even the most stylish of outfits. When seeking great shoes stores Portland has a few to offer, if you know where to look.

Contrary to what some men may believe people really do notice a guy’s shoes. If they are scuffed, worn or just downright ugly and unsuitable it sends a bad a message as if they had been wearing flip flops or sneakers with their dress pants (which a few seriously style challenged guys still think is OK to do)

One of the more stylish shoe options that can really set a man apart are exotic shoes. Exotic shoes are made from animal hides such as crocodile, lizard and even ostrich. The best of these kinds of shoes are made to order, so that each pair fits their owner like the proverbial glove. New York and LA have stores offering this fashionable footwear but one might not think that when it comes to such shoe stores Portland might have none to offer, but there is one, Estes Men’s Clothing in the ever fashionable Pearl District.

For those seeking a more conservative but equally stylish look the Allen Edmonds line of fine shoes has been chosen by no less than eight American Presidents and countless successful media personalities and businessmen. The only full line offering available to those living in the Portland area is carried at Estes Men’s Clothing where they are expertly fitted by a highly trained and knowledgeable staff.

If the idea of shopping at one of those “discount designer warehouses” appeals to you then when discussing shoe stores Portland has plenty of that type to offer as well. The problem is that the shoes that looked like such a great buy on the shelf tend to wear badly and last for just a few months, as the workmanship that went into their construction was not quite up to the high standards one might have expected.

Shoes are a necessity, not just a fashion item and taking the time to shop for a pair that is of the best quality is really the only sensible course of action for the well turned out man.
