How To Find High Heel Shoes


Heel high shoes make a woman feel slimmer, sophisticated and sexy. Every woman should have a nice pair of heel high shoes to add to wardrobe, especially for special occasions. When purchasing heel high shoes, you'll want to consider the way the shoe fits on you, what it will look good with and if you can actually walk in the high heel shoe.

Step 1

Be Practical: When shopping for heel high shoes, you'll want to be practical about the situation. You probably will not be able to walk comfortably in heels that are higher than 6 inches. Make sure you're going to be comfortable in your heel high shoes and it will lower your risk of a sprained ankle or another type of foot injury.

Step 2

Position Of The Heel: There are all different types of heel high shoes out there. Generally stating, most heel high shoes should have the heel placed directly in the middle of the shoe, where the heel of your foot would be. For example, a stiletto has a perfect heel position.

Step 3

Posture: When purchasing heel high shoes, you'll want to make sure you can still have good posture in them. You will want to stay away from heel high shoes that leave you slouching when you're walking in them.

Step 4

Budget: Most women prefer label name shoes or designer shoes, however, they are not always the best if you're on a tight budget. Some heel high shoes can cost you upwards of one grand, so sometimes it's better to stick with less expensive heel high shoes. As long as the shoe fits, is comfortable and durable, try not to pay much attention to the label.

Step 5

Do The Heels Look Good?: Heel high shoes usually go well with dress slacks, skinny jeans and skirts. When purchasing heels, make sure to try them on first and see if they suite your body as well as your personal style.

Other Things To Consider

Another thing to consider when looking for a great pair of heel high shoes is the material of the shoe. Our feet need to breathe, so make sure the material is breathable. This is especially important for those who wear heels all day long.

You also should try to keep into account what your wardrobe consists of. You'll want a pair of heel high shoes that will match and go well with a lot of different outfits in your closet.

Different Types of Heels

There are several different types of heel high shoes. Here are a few:

  • Classic Pumps
  • Prism Heels
  • Kitten Heels
  • Stilettos
  • Wedge Heels
  • Slingbacks

When picking a heel high shoe for yourself, take into consideration which style will keep you most comfortable and which style best suites your personal style. For example, kitten heels have a smaller heel on the bottom, which may be better for those who are wearing heel high shoes in the office, for work. Stiletto's, on the other hand, have very high and thick heels, which may be more suitable for a night out.
