High heels are the shoes to wear when you want to be both sophisticated and grown up. They instantly add to any outfit, lengthening the legs and slimming the body. They can take an entire look from average to stunning. However, it can be very hard to find a pair of high heels that are both gorgeous and comfortable. Thankfully, there are some tips and tricks to keep in mind when shopping for the perfect pair of heels.

One trick in order to tell if the heels will be comfortable throughout the whole night is to try to stand in your tiptoes while wearing the heels. If you cannot go onto your tiptoes in the heels, your feet are already fully extended and you are essentially walking on your tiptoes. This is pretty much a guarantee that these heels will not be comfortable as our feet were not made for walking on the tip toes for extended periods of time.

Another indication of if they will comfortable long term is the actual design of the shoe. If they are very strappy, that is likely to cause problems, because these straps often start to pinch. Also, if all the attaches them to your feet is a strap at the ankle and one at the toes, it puts and undue amount of stress on these areas and will likely cause a lot of discomfort.

A somewhat obvious, but no less helpful trick is to make sure the shoes actually fit. Shoe sizes tend to vary among brands and feet can sometimes even change in size over the course of a person’s life. When buying high heels, make sure that the back of the shoe fits snugly, but does not pinch the back of your foot. Also make sure the edges of the heel’s sides line up with the sides of your feet. In many ways, the shoes really should fit like Cinderella’s glass slipper. In other words, they should feel like they were made for your foot.

Stability is key when it comes to wearing high heels, as stumbling around in them takes away from the sophisticated look they provide. One way to ensure stability is to go for a thicker heel, no stilettos. This gives the shoe the ability to limit the amount of stress put on one part of the foot and spread it out more evenly.

Not only does it look uncomfortable when high heels have pointed fronts, but it is indeed painful. Your toes will not thank you for being cramped into a small space in an unnatural position for hours on end. Also make sure that the front of the shoe covers all of the toes, because not only does that prevent the dreaded toe cleavage, but it offers better support a more comfortable pair of high heels.

When it comes down to it, everybody’s feet are a bit different and what is comfortable for one may not be comfortable for another. That being said, there are brands that seem to have nailed the formula for classy, comfortable heels. Sadly, these brands tend to be on the more expensive end of the price range. One such brand is Enzo Angiolini. They are known for having both beautiful and practical high heels. Cole Haan is also known for their gorgeous yetcomfortable heels. While both are expensive, it is often better to go for quality over quantity when shopping for heels.

Hopefully with these tips, everyone can find both high heels that are practical and gorgeous. Good luck and happy shopping!
