The World of women’s shoes is a complex and never ending wormhole of choice, colours, styles, jargon and potential all-round confusion. Even the most simple searches can yield more questions that you care to be asked, let’s say for example you are searching for some simple black shoes for work, you need to decide if you want heels, if so what size heels, flat shoes or not, do you want straps with that or simple put your feet in and go shoes. It can be very difficult to make a simple selection, it is therefore important to work out what exactly you are looking for before you begin shopping.
Comfort vs Style
Many women suffer comfort in the name of style but if you are looking for some shoes that you are going to be spending a lot of time wearing then comfort should really be at the top of your list. That being said, there is no reason that you can’t buy a shoe that fits all of your needs, comfort and style. Do some research online for recent trends and make sure that you read what people have to say about different types of shoes, this can give you an indication into comfort levels.
The last thing you want is to buy a pair of shoes that will fall apart after the first few wears, if shopping online then pay close attention to feedback that has been left by others who bought the same shoes. Once again, the idea of durability will come down to how much you intend to use the shoes that you are buying, are they a pair of dress shoes that you are only likely to wear 3 or 4 times a year or are they going to be used daily for work or other purposes? Once you know what it is you are looking for then you can focus on how durable you need the shoes to be and this can help you determine cost as invariably the more reliable shoes are the more expensive.
There are some trends that come and go and there are others that stand the test of time, researching thoroughly will help you pick which of the shoes you like are forever stylish. For example, a pair of black strapped heels are utterly evergreen, they survive every season, every fad that comes and goes and match with an incredible amount of style choices. Check out fashion magazines and websites to determine which shoes you should be buying that will keep you looking good season after season.
