How to Find Heels That Are Comfortable

If you are looking to wear high heels, you probably know that the process can be quite difficult. If you need to find something that you can wear everyday, in particular, you may want to find something that you can walk in, stand in, and actually look comfortable in whenever you wear them.

Still, it is possible: you can find high heels that are comfortable. You just have to remember some basic rules:

Find The Heel Height That Works For You

One thing to consider is just getting a shorter heel. Too often, we want to go into the 3+ inch heels when we haven’t worn heels in some time. By starting with a smaller heel, you are more likely to build up the tolerance (and learn how to walk) in those heels.

Start with an inch or two inches and work your way up.

Consider A Chunky Heel

One thing you may want to do is have a high heel that is a bit chunkier. This is better because it offers more stability to your weight and you will feel more grounded. It also helps to absorb some of the impact when you walk, which can help for those who have trouble with their heels.

Not all chunky heels are created equally, so you want to find out which ones will work for you – whether that means chunky all the way through or just chunky near the base.

Make Sure to Check The Toe Box

One thing you want to do when you purchase heels is to check the toe box. You may want to do this because if the toe of the shoe is pointy, you might be losing space. There are some shoes that you can order true to size and you will be able to fit the toe box because the designer has thought of it. In other cases (typically in cheaper shoes), you may have to size up to allow for the point.

While buying online, it is important to look at the reviews.

Materials Matter

One thing people don’t consider is the materials used to make their shoes. Shoes that don’t have any meldable materials may be too tight and when your feet do swell after wearing them, you may start to feel restricted by them.

Instead, look for materials that will stretch and grow with you.

Heels do not have to be out of your reach – you just have to be smarter about how you wear them.
