When it comes to what you put on your feet you are going to want to try to find something that is going to give you an adequate amount of support for the task at hand.

You want to find a pair of shoes that are going to fit you snugly and securely. You want them to be tight enough that they are not going to slip and slide around inside of your shoes, or worse, fall out of them altogether. At the same time, you do not want them to be too tight that they are going to dig into your feet or squish your toes causing you unnecessary discomfort or pain. You are going to want to find that happy medium for the perfect fit.

According to many customers, the FitFlop Superballerina Glitzy shoes are running a little on the big size so they recommend that you purchase a smaller size. Additionally, they are pretty wide, especially in the heel so if you have narrow feet they might not be the best fit for you. Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems customers have with these shoes is the odd sizing conventions. They only have a limited amount of half sizes so that can become a problem for a lot of customers.

If you are unsure or you want to double check, you can always take a quick peek at a sizing chart. It is better to make sure and get the correct size the first time than to assume you know and be wrong, having to deal with the hassle of returning an ill-fitting pair of shoes.
