Who doesn’t love women’s designer shoes? A great pair of shoes can really put together a look. Shoes can also really boost your confidence and are often used as a guilty pleasure. The thing is, women’s designer shoes can easily run in the low hundreds to thousands of dollars. If you’re going to buy a pair of women’s designer shoes, you want to make sure you buy something that looks great, something that you can wear often, and something that’s going to be comfortable. So you’re getting ready to go and make that investment, the question is…So what should you look for when buying womens designer shoes?
Many times women’s designer shoes revolves around a high heels. When buying a pair of shoes, the heel is one of the first places you should look. When First of all consider the heel height and what you are going to be wearing the shoes for. Many women are buying high heels to try to be taller. While buying shoes to be taller often works, if you buy heels that are too low long or high, for your height based on proportion to look can be funny. You don’t want to look like an adult star.
Ask your self how long you’re going to be on your feet. When buying womens designer shoes it doesn’t matter how nice the shoes are if you can’t wear them because they kill your feet. If you work at a desk job, wear business attire all day and the extent of your walking consists of walking to the copier and back then any size heel will work just fine. Imagine working in a department store all day, and walking back and forth between departments. Those same 4 inch heels that you have at the office, while probably look really great are not going to be your best friend at the end of the day. For good office where, and a durable wear, a closed toe shoe with a heel between two and 3 inches is considered a good compromise. This is one that looks great in the office, and one that you should be able to handle wearing for long periods of time.
Another alternative to the straight high heel, is the wedge shoe. A nice pair of wedge shoes that have a little bit of a platform on them will get you some of that extra height, but will minimize on the excessive angle that he hides you’ll will create. The platform on the wedge platforms are great for giving you that extra height and reducing the strain on your feet and heel. Again, platforms add height in the sole reducing the angle your foot rests at and makes the shoe more comfortable, like wedges and other platform type shoes. There may be a stigma around platform shoes, that they are only four the women that are dancing in the adult industry, but that stigma is based around for inch and higher platform shoes. Now, you can go to a woman shoe store and find very tasteful work wage shoes.
Here is another easy way to have great shoes that feel comfortable. The problem is, it’s the most simple thing but probably the worst followed piece of advice. Here it is, be sure that the shoes you buy are in fact your size. Do not let vanity get in the way and get you to buy shoes based on the size not on the fit. Are you one of those women who is wearing a pair of shoes that is a size too small because you will not buy any size different? When trying on shoes, ask for a few different sizes. The sales person shouldn’t have a problem with you making sure the shoes you buy are the right size. After all, on average are going to be spending at least $ 50 and upwards to hundreds of dollars, make sure the shoes fit your feet perfectly. Just because you think you are a size 7, you may not be in the designer shoes you are buying and your feet will pay for it.
One of the big things you can do to improve shoe comfort, are some little things you do after you buy the right shoe. Add some of the cushion insoles to your shoes for comfort. This one little thing can make all the difference in the world. Comfort insoles are inexpensive, disposable and every woman should have them in every pair of shoes she owns. If you haven’t done so already give it a shot, once you try you will never go back.
When buying a pair of shoes from a new designer, a designer you may have never gotten a pair of shoes from, don’t just buy them by the looks or the picture. Go and try them on for real. You lose nothing when you try on a pair of shoes and if it turns out you didn’t like the way they looked send them back. Once you know how the shoes fit from a particular designer, then you can go online and search for great deals. But it is very important to make sure that upfront you are very comfortable and know exactly how the shoe fits and looks.
