Maintain Your Shoes Quality With These Great Tips!

You know how sometimes you buy a pair of shoes and almost immediately (after you break them in), they become practically the only shoes you put on? And you wonder how you survived without them; however, there will come a time that they will start to look shabby and worn.

The key is to prolong that from happening as much as possible. Your feet are precious and they can get sore easily especially if you are standing a lot or walking a lot for work or travel. That’s why if you find a pair of shoes that you love in terms of comfort and fashion, it really is a find. I think we all at some stage in our lives, have experienced pain in a foot or on a toe and it can really hinder your movement! Shoe quality does vary but it is possible to get a good and comfortable pair of shoes at a lower price, it’s all about knowing what suits the size of your foot. Get measured and establish if you should, for example, be looking for wider fitting options or if half sizes are your friend. Ask your local store assistant to measure you!

Striped shirts can look good on anybody and are always in trend. You can try this outfit to look trendy and sharp.

    Ryan Gosling gives major inspiration to go for rolled-up shirt sleeves. He shows off his fair arms and tattoo with quite a style and this gives him a bad ass look. Whenever you look at a man, your eyes rest on his shirt after his face. So, the shirt should be simple and casual yet trendy.
