The Right Heel For You

High heels can make your legs look long, lean and luscious. Unfortunately, they can also be quite uncomfortable if not chosen wisely. To avoid foot problems, you need to strike a balance between looks and comfort

Consider your build: If you have chunky or muscular legs and calves, choose a thicker, more substantial heel to balance out your leg. A good choice is heels that are wider or platforms. Not only do these tend to be more comfortable, but they can also make a chunky leg look smaller. Thin heeled shoes such as stilettos look best on people with thinner legs. Moreover it is advisable that you take your own height into consideration. If you are tall enough, never ever choose shoes with too high heels. Believe it or not, they may hinder your perfect slim figure and make you look more like giraffe.

Invest in neutral colors: Although you may want to branch into colored shoes occasionally for variety, blacks, browns, and neutrals are much more versatile and can be worn more places. Get out of the mindset that you need to match shoe color with your outfit. This is often overkill. Buy a few pairs of high quality heels in neutral tones that look good with almost everything. Buy one or two pairs of colored heels for special events.

Make sure that the shoe really fits your feet: Take your time about trying them on, and once you have a pair that you like, spend some time in them in the store. Stand in them; if there are any problems, your feet will tell you rather quickly. An important test is to stand on the floor in the shoes with your knees straight. Now try to raise yourself on your toes so there’s at least an inch of space under the heels. If you can’t do that, the heels are too high, and you shouldn’t wear them; you’ll end up walking and standing with your knees bent.

High heels can be stylish to wear and they don’t have to be uncomfortable if chosen wisely. Spend some time trying on a variety of high heels before purchasing. Don’t make the mistake of sacrificing comfort for style.
