Do you often struggle to find the right footwear? Do shoes often feel tight and heels always uncomfortable? If you have wide feet, shoe shopping presents a challenge of its own. Finding fashionable heels made with comfort in mind is a rarity. That needn’t be the case. We’re here to show you what to look for in a shoe, to ensure the perfect fit.
Follow these simple tips when shopping for your next pair of heels:
DO avoid pointy shoes
The main thing you want to look for in a comfortable pair of shoes is plenty of room for your feet and toes. Avoid pointy shoes.
DO avoid slip-on shoes
You want to make sure your feet are adequately supported to ensure your weight is distributed evenly across your feet. With slip-ons, your feet will slide forward, causing unnecessary pressure on your toes.
DO look for removable insoles
If you can remove the inner lining of your shoe, it will provide your foot with more room, making them far more comfortable.
DO look for adjustable shoes
Shoes with laces, Velcro or other similar mechanisms can be adjusted. Loosen or tighten according to preference.
DO got for a stable base
If you struggle with wide feet, it might be best to avoid kitten heels and stilettos. You want to find a pair of shoes with a sturdy base. Fear not! That doesn’t mean you can’t wear heels – opt for platforms, wedges and block heels.
DO go for tailored fits
Many brands offer a wide fit, in recognition that they need to accommodate different shaped feet. Look for these when shopping and go to trusted brands that are known for creating shoes with orthopaedic technology, such as Geox, Clarks and Birkenstock.
