Hola my angels! Hope you’ll are doing fabulous in Feb 😍😁 Well jokes apart, it’s been a while I blogged about footwear, the last one I did was on Top 10 shoes every woman should own, which I suppose was a couple of months back! Hence back with yet another blog on footware just for y’all!
As we all know how much we as women love flaunting shoes on different occasions with different outfits❣Infact it’s rightly said by Marilyn Monroe, “ Give a girl the
right shoes and she can conquer the world!”
I personally love buying shoes in different styles, and styling them with different outfits is something I enjoy doing the most. So in this blog, I’ll be sharing some of my tips and tricks to select the right pair of shoes for your outfits and look stunning while you strut wearing them!
1. Opt for lightweight Shoes!
For obvious reasons, we all know that heavy material shoes make it difficult to move around as they are made of less comfortable material. Moreover, it makes your feet sweat a lot, especially in summers. Hence it’s always better to invest a little more in good quality & lightweight shoes because comfort matters a lot when it comes to footwear!
2. Know your feet arch type!
Knowing your feet arch is very important to make sure you buy shoes that comfortably fit your feet arch. Some people tend to have a high arch, while some have flat feet and some may be in between these two. Hence make sure you know which category you belong to before you buy shoes for yourself! Mostly the task is more troublesome for the high arch ones as finding the best fit for them isn’t as easy as it is for the rest of us!
3. Keep multiple colour/ style options!
Now what I mean here is, your footware should compliment your outfit well rather then compete with it! I would advise pairing busier shoes with simple outfits and simpler ones with outfits that have got a lot of prints, embellishments and so on. Basically, it’s all about balancing out the whole look so as to look proportionate from all angles! Hence it’s always better to have choices for colours and style to avoid any mismatch of the look! That is one major reason why I love shopping for shoes from various online sites! They have an amazing collection of footwear not just for women but for men and kids too! You could also shop from latest collection of shoes online!
4. Know the right size!
Make sure you have at least 1‒1.5cm at the end of the shoe. It should be wide enough and long enough to fit your feet. The shoe should feel snug but not tight. Check whether you can wiggle all your toes when wearing the shoes. Remember, you need room for your foot to move within the shoe as you walk or run. Walk or run a few steps in your shoes, to check if they are comfortable.
5. Know the thumb rule!
If you’re thinking of buying high-heeled shoes, the maximum heel height should
be 9.5 cm. The acceptable distance between the sole and the heel should be no less than 3 cm. The shorter the distance, the less stable the shoes become and the more weight is transferred to the toes.
6. Shoe material is very important!
Its always good to avoid synthetics. Wear shoes with leather, suede, or fabric uppers. These materials breathe, which lessens the chance of blistering. Buy shoes that have
leather or suede insoles. Breathable and pliable, they help prevent chafing and
blistering, and they mould to the feet.
Well, guys with that I’ve summed up major points which you should consider when selecting your footwear. Though these were the major highlights there are a few other points too that I would like to mention when selecting the shoes. The type of occasion/ event for which you want to buy the footwear, weather conditions (knee length or slouch boots are the best for winters) your level of comfort with heel height are some factors are equally important to consider when looking for the right pair of footware!
