When it comes to buying shoes online, it can seem like a gamble. You see a pair that you absolutely want to own because they looks so good on screen, but when you get they, reality bites you in the feet — quite literally. Comfort should always be at the fore when it comes to fashion, and this credo applies to footwear in particular. Instead of gambling your money away and dealing with shoppers' remorse later, make wise investments. Here's what we think you should invest in, when it comes to shoes:
