There are various styles and kinds of footwear for women, ranging in a variety of innumerable designs and styles. To help lessen women’s selection struggle, here are some tips on how to choose the best shoes for any time and place.
1. Comfy and Sporty: Rubber Shoes
Rubber shoes are the best type of shoes to keep your feet safe, warm and clean anytime and anywhere.
- Physical Education classes require students to wear rubber shoes because the composition of these shoes is softer and more flexible, which will prevent possible injuries from any physical activity, or unexpected situations.
- For manual car drivers (especially for women), I recommend using rubber shoes while driving because it lessens, or prevents, pain and cramps in the muscle feet. Flat and doll shoes usually have thinner soles compared to rubber shoes which make it painful for the feet if overused.
- More challenging physical activities and sports that demand a lot of running, walking, jumping or climbing require the use of rubber shoes. The dirt, damage and hurt which might be caused by travelling on rocky, rough and muddy roads is also prevented using these.
Make sure that you pair up rubber shoes with clothes that won’t make you look too rugged but not too sporty (if you don’t need a sporty look).
2. Skate Shoes
Skate shoes somehow look like the usual rubber shoes, but their bodies and soles may differ. They usually have plain bodies with minimal designs; running shoes have more texture, designs and color and are foamy. Skate shoes soles are usually flat; running shoes soles are more rubbery with hump designs or spikes, making them ideal for some sports.
- Wearing these is a safe decision for any event which is not formal and not just for skateboarding.
- They can be paired with dresses, pants, shorts and skirts.
Some skate shoes have thick soles which make them helpful if you want to add height.
3. Elegant and Girly: Ballet Flats or Closed Doll Shoes
These can be matched with skirt, pants, shorts or dresses. Their comfort differs depending on the material used and composition.
Some ballet flats are made of soft material. It’s actually a safe partner for any kind of attire but not much for boyish looks. However, if you’re wearing these kind of flat shoes, and it rains hard you’ll have cold and wet feet, which is very uncomfortable.
Some are made of harder and tougher material, which may have metal designs on top. You can wear this kind if you do not want to look too formal but at the same time not too informal.
They look more elegant and they can be an alternative for high heels (if wearing high heels aren’t compulsory at all).
4. Peeking Toes: Open-toe Flat Sandals
Open-toe flat sandals are recommended for casual occasions. Use them if the ground on your way to and at your destination isn’t dangerous for your toes.
Some of them have a lot of straps, and some have none at all. If you’re going to amusement parks to ride extreme rides, do not wear non-strap sandals or do not wear sandals at all. Why? They might fall off if you’re riding a high ride or one that turns you upside down. You might hurt your feet as well if your sandals are not closed.
5. Friendly Heels: Wedge Heels
Some wedge heels are closed toes and some are not. They can be used for casual events and ordinary days. Next to stiletto heels, they shouldn’t be used for formal wear.
Admittedly, wedge heels are more bearable than stiletto heels as they give more support to the feet. If you’re not used to wearing stiletto heels, you’ll know that wedge heels give a wonderful kind of relief.
