The right pair of heels can look fabulous and comfortable at the same time. Say goodbye to blisters and aching feet by getting the perfect ones for you, because everyone’s feet differ. What is good for you might be painful for someone. Still, there are basics of what makes a pair of heels bearable.
Heels are more wearable if they are supportive. There are also products like inner soles that make a pair more comfortable. Look out for ones with a cushioned sole, supportive shape, and a thick heel.
Here is what you need to look for when buying heels:
· Dress Heels
Choose a pair with a padded sole or to keep the toes from hurting, one with an open or round toe.
· Platform Heels
Get a pair with a sturdy heel to avoid spraining your ankle.
· Kitten Heels
They are mostly quite comfortable and available in various styles that suit different feet.
· Block Heels
They give more support than stilettos, so you might want to get them if you have to walk around in heels all day.
· High Heel Sandals
Open-toe sandals are great for summer, while one with a strap will keep the feet secure on the heels and add support.
· High Heel Boots
Forget the stiletto heel and get one with a thicker heel.
These shoes are normally uncomfortable unless you go for a brand that is known for creating them well (and wearable!). Otherwise, choose one with heels not too high and with a cushioned sole.
There are many different kinds of heels out there, so you can find the right one for work or for formal events. If you have wide feet, though, you might want an open-toe pair to give your feet more space.
