Women and men have worn shoes and high heels as a symbol for power and royalty and more openly since the sexual revolution.
Through time, shoes is one of the most loved accessory but on hindsight it is also one of the most things that we take for granted.
Think about it, they are the ones that step onto dirt, get scratched and step into things thay are not supposed to step on…
Shoes protect our feet and are there to serve us and shield us from the outside world. But as shoes protect our feet, sometimes shoes can do harm to the health of our feet. Namely wearing stilettos can cause varicose veins and calf muscle pains. But women despite on all these health warnings still wear sky high platforms. For reasons such as social pressure, tools of attraction or just a satisfaction of the inner psyche.
And choosing the right shoes for the right feet is essential to our health and well-being. Make sure that the shoes you wear are not too tight or too lose. Note that there are different rules for leather or non leather shoes. Leather shoes expand so its just normal for them to feel snug on your foot and after a few wears they will be a perfect fit. Non-leather on the other hand must fit well at first try.
The most comfortable heels must be 4cm high , anything over that (if there is no platform to support it) can be uncomfortable. Also to know if shoes are good quality, you can pinch the back of the shoe or try tiptoeing , if they are very hard then most likely they will hurt but if they are flexible then it will be more comfortable as they follow the normal movement of the feet.
Wearing the right shoes for the right feet is just a simple step in saying thank you to your shoes and for your shoes to extend their thanks to you.
