When you’re shopping for high heels there are a number of considerations you should keep in mind, from the width of the toe to the outfit it will be worn with. Following these tips will make your shoe shopping experience even easier:
- Height. The height of a heel can have a substantial impact on how your feet will feel while you are wearing them. If you’re not used to wearing heels, start small. Kitten heels are a great first-time dress shoe!
- Colour. When in doubt, stick with black. In the way they say every woman needs a little black dress, she also needs a little black shoe. You can’t go wrong with a classic black pump, especially when you have options like peep toes which allow you to color coordinate a pedicure with your outfit.
- Width. Some shoes, such as pointy-toed heels in particular, can leave your toes feeling squished and swollen. While they may look sharp, it isn’t realistic to wear them for long periods of time, especially if you’ll be walking or standing. Think about how long you’ll be wearing a shoe as you try on different widths.
- Heel type. From chunky to stiletto, you have a lot of options here. Remember, the thicker the heel, the more support you’ll have. If you aren’t used to wearing high heels or anticipate having them on for long periods of time, you’ll want to avoid really high, thin heels. Instead, opt for a round toed shoe with a comfortable heel you can walk in easily. As a bonus, round toed shoes make your feet look smaller!
