Shopping for heels is an art. Sure, ideally, it would be great to be able to just step into the store, have your eyes land on the perfect pair, find it to be a perfect fit, and walk out a happy camper. However, it’s never as simple. They could easily turn out to be so uncomfortable and unsuited that they end up at the back of your closet after one wear. That’s why you need to put a little bit more thought into the hunt for good pumps. Here are a few things to consider the next time you’re out heel hunting.
The Right Fit
Get measured to find out your exact shoe size, especially if you haven’t been shoe shopping a while. Even the slightest variation can make a whole lot of difference. Different brands and different styles also fit individuals at different sizes! You may need to go one up or one lower, depending on the shoe.
Walk a Little Walk
The first thing you do when you try on those heels in the store is to take them for a spin. Instead of just trying on one heel to see if it fits, put both on and walk a bit around the store. See how comfortable they are, or whether they’re pinching your toes, or making your feet slip around in them. This will cue you into how your feet will fare when wearing them for long periods of time.
End of the Day is the Ideal Time
A common tip is to make sure to shop for shoes at the very end of the day, after you’re done with all your errands. Your feet will be slightly swollen from all the prior walking around, allowing you to see whether the heels fit properly. Otherwise, they might end up being too tight after a little activity.
Pick the Right Style for You
Heels come in all sizes, shapes, and heel styles. There are stilettos, kitten heels, cone heels, wedges, sling back sandals, and many more to choose from. Find what you’re most comfortable in and what suits your style to a T!
Even when you have found just the perfect heels after painstaking hours of looking, mishaps can still happen.
