Style v Comfort…

NINE WEST:

Estrilada:

Black High Heel Sandals

I recently picked up these beauts.  They were a steal on sale from Nine West in  House of Fraser. The price tag was £59 reduced from £105.
Open toe high  heels with the side  buckle detailing. They will go very nice with some of my outfits.

 

Question…

When you look for shoes,  do you go for style or comfort? Which is more important?  I have a friend who will always go for style over comfort and her feet are paying for it now!

Now I  know we have all experienced that feeling when you see a pair of shoes that give you palpitations, sweaty palms and generally get you over excited.  They would usually have a killer heel and sometimes a killer price tag. They felt a bit tight in the shop, but you thought “I’ll work it”. When you buy and wear them, you feel super sexy.  You leave your house with your head held high, with poise and class…untouchable.

Fast forward a few hours later after dancing, socialising  etc and you will find that you’re now walking with your back hunched over, knees knocked together and taking pigeon steps.  This is because those same beloved shoes are attacking your feet!!   You look down at them and your toes look  like they have been taken hostage.   The class, poise and general “togetherness” have gone and you  have a corn that wasn’t there before. You wish you had on those comfortable soft slippers waiting for you at home..lol.

 

Style or comfort?

I personally aim for both, for the reasons I just mentioned,  but if I had to choose I’m afraid…its comfort. I have suffered in the past. To combat this problem I sometimes bring a pair of foldable, cotton flat ballet  pumps out with me which can easily fit in my bag.  You can find many shoes which provide both style and comfort, you just have to find the right retailer.

The shoes in this post are an example. They look stylish, but the heel is wearable and not so narrow and high, so they provide stability and help me with my not so narrow feet.  I sound like an old woman I know, but these things are important…..lol

 

So which is it…style or comfort?  Please leave your comments, like  and share.

xoxo

    1. Hi Yuni,
      Nice of you to drop by my blog. I understand about the wide feet issue. These are quite comfortable as there isn’t much material to constrict the foot and the wide ankle cuff supports the ankle.
