How To Pick the Right Footwear For the Day?
I love shoes of all kinds, regardless of their type, height, material or brand. I like them all, be it flats, stilettos, wedges or something else. These tips will help you a daily basis so that you are never unprepared.
Here are few quick tips to help you decide what you’re going to wear for the day:
• Based on the venue/place:
Always choose your shoes according to the place. Suppose you’re going out to a wedding reception and it is out in the open, I will suggest wearing flats or wedges, otherwise, you will end up ruining your shoes with the heel getting stuck in the mud every now and then. If you still decide that you have to wear a heel, go for the broader, squarish platform ones. If there is a thick carpet involved, then mind your steps especially if you’re wearing stilettos.
• Based on the weather:
This is very important because no matter what kind of footwear you like, the bottom line is that you liked them enough to buy them. If you think it might rain, wear something sensible. You can wear a flip-flop or shoes made of PVC or some other synthetic material. If you’re going to be out in the sun, wear something which covers your feet that way you’ll have less tanning or burning sensation. In winter, avoid flip-flops or slippers and wear pumps or boots and you will feel warmer and less of cracked heel.
• Based on the amount of time you’ll be standing up:
If you are going to spend on your day standing up, go for flats or minimal heels. If you are planning to wear heels, wear the ones with substantial width so that your weight is comfortably distributed. I personally prefer Dr. Scholl’s shoes for such a purpose, but my elder sister constantly reminds me I am not 60, so I should quit acting like this and I don’t pay attention! You should have at least one such shoe from whichever brand you prefer, which has a thick foam based sole and you can even get wedges of considerable height in some of the brands.
• Based on the surface you’ll be walking upon:
This is a lot similar to knowing the venue. Now, you might be going off to a party and it is indoors, but you will have to walk on the pavement before entering and it is made of cobbled stones. Your 10 cm heel might just get caught so pay attention where you place your feet and specially your heel. Inside, there is a very thick carpet which is again very deadly because you might lose your grip and end up falling.
I hope you find these tips useful.
