10 things to consider when buying shoes

Fashion and Beauty

Should you wear heels or flats? As any woman can tell you this is no run in the mill type of debate, at least for women: shoes are important in a woman’s life.  This is because the perfect shoe can change your life, literally.

A shoe is not just foot wear or an accessory that simply completes one’s outfit, but it can boost confidence and make one feel sexier. Every woman knows that various types of shoes have their individual stand out qualities but how do you settle on one? Here are some tips from the experts

Avoid extreme heels or extreme flats when shopping for shoes. When you have to wear heels, avoid wearing them for too long. Look for plow wedges or flats with a low heel. Stretch leg muscles before and after putting on heels. Go for a heel of two inches or less if you plan to wear them for an extended periods. Consider getting supportive and comfortable shoes during your commute to and from work and changing into heels after you arrive at the office to reduce the time your feet spend in them.

Avoid pointed-toe shoes. Ensure there is enough room in the toe box for you to wiggle your toes. Buy a wide variety of shoes so that you get to vary your footwear day-to-day. Choose a thicker heel as opposed to a pointed one for maximum support Look for rubber soles and not slick, hard leather for more grip on the ground. Find rubber shoes with memory foam insoles. Buy shoes in the afternoon, when feet are at their larges. What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?
