To understand if the shoe fit well you must verify that fingers should be slightly detached from the toe of the shoe, of course when shoe is perfectly tied. To control the good fitting of the shoe, you should be able to put a finger behind the heel when the shoe is not laced up and verify that fingers reach the toe.
Even the accuracy of fit is very important: if the shoes, well laced up, doesn’t keep the foot blocked, the shoe will not be stable on foot during the walk.
If the shoe is too short fingers will be crushed by walking down, on the contrary, if the shoe if too long the heel will slip, leading to the risk of blisters.
A good choice always requires time and patience.
