The first thing we notice in an outing or a gathering is the footwear. It is then that we realize that we could have worn a better footwear. Footwear is not only for aesthetics but also to scale the persona of the one who wears it. We are also judged by the way we attire and footwear comes a long way in the grand scheme of things. So footwear indeed completes dressing.
Elegance in footwear depends on our choice. And our choice can be refined if we wear those that suit the appropriateness of the situation.
Again, what should we look in our shoes? The comfort or style?, We should say, both are pretty much important.
Let us see the good characteristics of a suitable footwear. Typically, price shouldn’t be a factor and nothing should be compromised for a shoe that is comfortable.
Flexi or adjustable
Adjustable straps such as laces or Velcro which allow for adjustment depending on an individual’s needs are good for sandals, floaters and heels. A lace or strap would hold the foot in it’s place allowing fast walking, running or rough use.
The shoes’ heel support / heel cup should be soft and stable, preventing vertical or horizontal heel movement. Ladies! For your attention please! Kindly inspect the heel cup and the sole of the heels while buying, you don’t want to end up feeling like walking on a stone pillar.
- Roomy enough
There should be sufficient room at the front of the shoe for your toes. During normal walking your foot both spreads out and lengthens up. Therefore, you should pick a shoe that is longer than your longest toe by about the width of your thumb. This would also allow some breathe space for your toes protecting you from
- Bunions or hammertoes.
- Toes that cross over each other.
- Ingrown toenails.
- Complications from diabetes that you may not feel due to poor sensation in the feet.
- Heel height
It is in the best interest that shoe heel must not exceed 2.5cm in height. When taller ones are worn for long hours, the heel and ankle would become more unstable and thus be prone to sprains and forefoot pain.
Monitor your footwear and discard shoes that are too worn-down, as these have often lost some of their basic functions. Continuing to run in worn-out running shoes increases the stress and impact on your leg joints and heels, which can lead to overuse injuries.

Flip-flops also called slides or step-ins are a type of open-toed sandal typically worn casually. They consist of a flat sole made of rubber or plastic, held loosely on the foot by a Y-shaped strap that passes between the first and second toes and around either side of the foot. The name “flip-flop” originated from the sound made by the slapping of the sole, foot and floor when walking.
On the other side:
They should be avoided in case of prolonged walking because they offer very little to no arch support, heel cushioning. This type of shoe can accelerate the problems associated with having a flat foot.
Flats are sandals or slippers are flat on the sole. They give the body the perfect stability.
Who would not say yes to a brand new catwalk or Do Bhai high heels, they are pretty much a dream of every teenage girl. Heels range from low to high height upto 6 inches. Even though a caution has been spread about the height of the heels , it’s not a problem if the flaunting are for a few hours or so, but if put into regular use, please be informed about the health issues too.
Wearing heels regularly shifts your body weight to your forefoot, which increases the pressure to this area and typically leads to forefoot pain. High heels also create a balance problem; as you force your knees and hips forward, it may lead to pain and discomfort in your back and legs.
They are typically used for athletic purposes. But today it is nick -named as casual shoes which can be worn at any wear except formal meetings. But who knows wearing them formally can be the next fashion trend. Though kicks are easy to use, foot hygiene is very important and should not be ignored.
Sports guys ! make sure to check your feet every day, wash them and keep them dry for a few hours and don’t forget to trim your toe nails to avoid injury.
