• Don't be influenced by a sale - how many mistakes have you made because you couldn't resist a bargain. A lot of us are guilty of this.

  • Don't buy shoes that are too small or too big simply because they didn't have your size. Or shoes that you know are going to be jolly uncomfortable - if they're uncomfortable in the shop, you know they will be killers when you wear them.

  • Don't be influenced by a sales assistant - if you don't feel 100% comfortable, go back to the store with a friend or have the assistant take a photo of you and reassess it at home, with the input of others if you need it.

  • Don't rush into a decision. Take your time. If you're not sure, go away and think about... and then once you're sure go back and get it.
