The Best Shoe Type For Your Feet


Step out in footwear best suited to your shape keeping all fetishes aside.

Suit your own style:

Tall women adorning a short dress or a denim skirt can experiment with kitten heels, a Mary Jane style or bright tie-ups to jazz up the outfit. Short women who want a boost can find solace in comfortable platform stilettos for the snazzy evening look or funky wedges for day wear. For curvy short women closed shoes, not their cup of tea. Wedges or French heels can give you much needed elevation and lighten the look. A great way to highlight a slim, tall pair of legs, calf or knee-length boots are your best pick. You can wear them over skinny jeans or a knee-length dress or skirt. For men, black shoes warrant with navy blue, black or military green pants, where as grey, khaki and lighter colours can get along with brown shoes.

For broad feet:

Broad feet are wide towards the toes and substantially narrow towards the heel. Wider foot fronts work best for people with broad feet require ample room at the front of their shoe for their toes to breathe. To get a dainty yet comfortable fit you can wear, ankle straps and cross over styles. If we talk about flats then, strappy thong sandals are also a good option. To replace the closed shoes and give the same look, opt for cross-over straps or open toed pumps. With a slender look it lets your feet have more room and breathe properly. Men who possess broad feet should steer clear of very blunt and rounded toes. Not very pointed, but a slight tapering end will help take away from the width of the foot and still manage to give you ample squiggle room.

For narrow feet:

Narrow feet are slender all along, from the heel to the toe, and with proportionately narrow ankles. For a good fit, they require footwear to hold their feet at more than one junction. It becomes difficult to walk in anything strappy and loose, without proper support. Instead, try colourful tie ups that hold the foot firmly in front.  For the slim footed, flat ballerinas are good options. Try experimenting with a little heel, like a Mary Jane or French or kitten heels. This can be done for little variation. Draped short dresses, gowns with flares or office formals can be ensembles with stilettos and pumps. Find a pair with a slight platform front for better hold and comfort and make it easy for you to walk around and wear the shoes a for a longer period of time if required. Men with slender feet can try tapering shoes but should make sure they are not excessively pointed at the tip. Ankle length boots work well, to give the foot more definition.

For flat feet:

It is difficult for some people to wear shoes that have a lot of elevation, since the foot doesn’t get the required support. Such people have feet that do not possess clearly defined arches on the sole. For them, brands make Arch supports that can be found at most sports-wear stores and at selected chemist shops. These can be put into a closed shoe for a better fit. While you can wear almost all closed shoes with the help of an arch support, you can also go for strappy footwear that has colourful, girly wedges with floral embarkments or solid colours or crossover straps.
