Since time immemorial women and shoes have had a close relationship. It is a fact that women go crazy when it comes to clothes, makeup, jewelry and accessories, but then who can blame them? There is so much out there and they are expected to know everything about shopping like what to buy and when to buy it. But this is not the reason that women are crazy about shoes. Actually even women will not be able to tell you why they are crazy about shoes but just that they are!
But you must know that there are many dos and don’ts attached to shoes like what not wear on a first date. We all know that shoes are not only worn because they offer protection to the feet but also for the way they look and the way they make a woman feel. The fact is that having a pair of pretty shoes will mean that many a woman will sacrifice comfort for the sake of how it makes her legs look.
Plus the same type of heels would obviously not work for every occasion. There are occasions that will make women wear the most punishing of heels on their shoes just so that their legs are showcased to their best and sometimes they will go for comfort. For somebody who does not much about the relationship that women have with their footwear and different types of heels this will really mystifying.
But before we delve into the mysteries attached to this part of a woman’s wardrobe, let us take a look at the type of heels there are.
Wedge heels: Among all the heels that are talked about here, these are the ones that are very comfortable. This means that you can wear this and walk for a whole. This is because they have a large part of surface area as compared to many other types of heels. The heel is thicker and also is attached to the sole. They give comfort and cause the least amount of issues with ankles and feet.
Kitten heels: As the name suggests they have a smaller heel and are generally matched to go with the color of dress you are wearing. These heels can be worn by women of all ages and even by younger girls who are not yet in their teens as the heel is not so high.
High heeled boot: This is boot that comes up to the knee or at least thereabouts. It is the fashionable version of the cowboy boots but with a higher heel. They keep you warm and the look can send the temperatures of others around you soaring up.
Evening sandals: These work just as well on occasions that are more formal as well as when you went to go casual with a pair of jeans. Since the heels on these are not as high as the stilettos, they are easier to walk with.
Pump: You can either go for the ones with toes peeping out or platform pumps and these work well from work to play and the other way around. If you take it in terms of how they compare with wardrobe, they are the LBD of footwear. They are light in weight, do not have straps and the backs are closed making it really workable at all times. The heels could go as much as 4 inches in height and sometimes even a bit more.
Stilettos: Like the name suggests these are the killer heels. Like the metal knife or dagger they are compared to Stilettos have thin and sharp heels that can go up to as much as 8 inches. If you are planning on buying stilettos go for the higher end ones to protect your feet.
Shoes are something that we cannot live without but the kind of heel you want to go with depends on your lifestyle and comfort levels.
