Have you ever been in a party or special occasion with sore feet? Well, you don’t have to sacrifice for the sake of beauty anymore. Now, get ready for wearing dress shoes that you can wear along the occasion at no cost to your feet. Well, the perfect dress shoes will make your feet look elegant, match your outfits and be comfortable for walking and dancing. So, the next question is how to find the perfect dress shoes?
Here are some tips for you when you choose them in a shop: • Choose your dress shoes that have stable and comfortable heels. So your legs will look longer and slimmer, make your feet look great and force you to keep good posture. If you don’t get used to wear high heel shoes, go with low heels or flats as much as possible. • Dress shoes which are made from fabric looks good but if you can afford it, always go for genuine leather shoes. Quality leather has an amazing ability to adjust to the shape of your foot and always feels better than synthetics. • Match your dress shoes with the outfit. Black dress shoes are classic, they work with any dark colored outfit. If your outfit is in a pastel color, try ivory shoes; soft, warm ivory usually works better than pure white. With a full suit, you want the nice, traditional polish dress shoes to compliment the suit. If you are dressing more casual, you might consider a comfortable pair of oxfords. • Have both feet measured. Most people have one foot larger than the other one. Fit to the largest foot. So make sure your dress shoes have correct size. Otherwise the dress shoes will never feel comfortable on your feet. • Walk in the shoe to make sure it fits and feels right. Make sure the ball of your foot fits comfortably into the widest part (ball pocket) of the shoe. • Make sure that you wear the dress shoes around the store while shopping, if appropriate. Many dress shoes feel great for the first couple of minutes and then begin to burn the ball of the foot, pinch your toes, tilt your foot forward, or slip after a few minutes. • Fit your dress shoes at the end of the day when your feet are largest. Your heel should fit comfortably in the shoe with minimum amount of slippage. • Finally, have a nice party with perfect dress shoes then!
