High heels…they’re killer – at helping you get his attention, and causing excruciating pain days after the night has ended. Sure, a little give and take is usually worth it in the art of winning your hook-up’s heart, but when your feet begin to resemble that of a chimpanzee’s toes at the age of twenty-something, it might be time to take an alternate route. The following feet freedoms will have you happy to make the switch from the stiletto to being able to feel your feet again- all without loosing that va va voom.
If you’re willing to let go of the pain but wanting to keep the height of heels then wedges are a must. This heel elevates the foot from tip to heel, meaning pressure is distributed evenly. Finding it difficult to imagine comfort and height in the same sentence? Think back to the platform sneakers of ’99- wedges are just as comfortable, but allow you to maintain dignity in the process.
2. Ballet flats
If a loss of height isn’t a major concern in your quest for the perfect clubbing shoe, then the ballet flat is just the choice for you. As comfortable as your day to day shoe, the ballet flat has no elevation whatsoever- meaning even the tallest of girls can look sexy without feeling like a giraffe the whole night through.
3. Kitten heels
Providing a great in-between choice in the great divide between heels and flats, the kitten heel is essentially a flat with the tiniest of heels attached for aesthetics. If you’re wanting to keep your setting at ‘sexy’ whilst maintaining comfort, the kitten heel will allow just that. Reow.
4. Point flats
A major concern with the ballet flat for some girls is its ability to make you look, and feel as though you’re on your way to Year 8 english class. The point flat however, combines the ergonomic, comfortable design of the ballet flat with the sophistication of a business inspired point-front. This ‘point’ adds at least five years to your sophistication rating, and never goes astray when trying to edge (or stab) your way through a crowded dance floor.
When that winter chill just won’t release it’s solid grip (even after ten drinks), it can be hard to shake the icicles off your bare topped feet. This is where the boot comes in. Setting you apart from ladies donning the traditional clubbing shoe, the boot is a sure-fire head turner- especially if it’s a knee high. Warm, comfortable AND sexy? These boots are made for walking.
