While shoes have gained popularity among people, so are their accessories. Accessories for shoes would depend on your need, whether if it’s for feet support, for replacing worn out shoe accessories, or for added shoe design. If you want to find accessories for shoes, here are some steps that you could follow.

Step 1

Know what you need

There are a lot of accessories for shoes in the market. Examples are shoe laces, shoe clips, shoe straps, insoles, booty shapers, heel cushions, and a lot more. You have to identify what you need before doing your research so that you wouldn’t have time looking for accessories for shoes. If you need to add something fabulous to your shoes, then you can add shoe clips. If you want to replace your worn out shoe laces, then you can look for shoe laces. If you want your boots to be always in shape especially when you keep them, then you can look for booty shapers.

Step 2

Know if it can be used for your shoes

There are some accessories for shoes that are specific for a certain type of shoes. For example, there are certain insoles that are only for athletic shoes so if you don’t know for what specific type of shoes are the insoles that you’re going to purchase then you wouldn’t be able to use it especially if you’re planning to use it for your leather shoes or sandals. Another example would be in choosing shoe laces. Shoes have different shoe laces, so before purchasing one, make sure that it would be the same as the original shoe lace. You can’t just buy thick shoe laces which usually are used in most athletic shoes for your leather brogues or other types of leather shoes.

Step 3

Go to shoe stores

Shoe stores usually sell accessories for shoes. The advantage of buying accessories from shoe stores is that you are sure that the certain accessory that you’re going to purchase is fit for your shoes, assuming that you can also find your shoes in that particular shoe store. You can also ask the salesperson in charge since he or she knows very well for which shoes are those accessories for. The disadvantage of looking for accessories in shoe stores is that not all of the accessories that you’re looking for are in there.


Step 4

Go to department stores

Department stores are the best place to search for accessories for shoes. It has all the accessories that you would need for your shoes. However, it would still always depend which department store you go to. You can always ask assistance from any salesperson in charge to help you find the appropriate accessories for your shoes.

Step 5


Search online

Another convenient place to look for accessories for shoes is through the internet. You can always search online on what specific accessory you are looking for. There are also online shops that sell them and you can always purchase them online if you want to. The only disadvantage is that there may be times when you will be charged with shipping fees (depending on your location) which will make your total purchase more expensive compared to purchasing in shoe stores or department stores near you.


Aside from the fact that those thick shoe laces won’t fit into your leather shoes, it would also not look very appropriate. So you always have to make sure that you purchase the right accessories for shoes.
