Women need to buy comfortable shoes that fit properly. This may be obvious to most, however many women who see a pair that is a “must have” buy whether it is their correct size or not. Whatever the reason is to buy new shoes, do not jump just because there is a sale and the price is right.
If the shoe is not comfortable at the shoe store, it will not be comfortable when it is worn for an event. On the other hand, buying expensive shoes will not always bring you comfort either.
The style/design, type of leather, whether it has enough cushioning or arch support all play a role in how comfortable that shoe will be. Shoes that have a steep pitch to them can actually force the ball of your foot straight down and can cause pain in the ball of your feet, legs and low back. Mostly all fashion footwear could use help in the comfort and support category.
Always buy shoes for the longer foot and make sure there is at least a thumb’s width between the longest toe and the tip of the shoe.
If you are standing for long periods of time because of your work, wearing shoes that have a cushioned inner sole and outer sole can help take the pressure off your feet.
Buying shoes with proper arch support is the most important thing that women should do, especially for work or if they are in sales and on their feet for a majority of the day.
Most fashion footwear do not have adequate arch support built into the shoe, however there are over-the-counter arch products that can be stuck in the arch of any shoe to provide instant support and allow you to walk and stand happily ever after.
