Yes you should, if you're applying to work at a sporting goods store. Otherwise no.

I am here to tell you it is an excellent idea.

I took a risk ordering the 55mm size on Amazon (the nearest RE dealer is in Dallas) - I figured if they didn't work I could go down to the 52 or up to the 57 without much issue.
