Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, end-of-decade parties… the list of events to attend this festive season is exciting. However, we know how hard it can be to look amazing without straining our feet and legs with those high heels! Luckily we have a solution. The trick to finding shoes that are compatible with longer hours is looking for a shorter heel or a more supportive style. Take a look at these three comfy shoe styles that are sure to keep you on your feet all night long.
Cute Kitten Heels
Kitten heels have a shorter heel while still looking fabulous! The added bonus: they tick the comfy shoes box.
Top tip: Find an embellished pair with added details or one with a metallic finish. The smaller heel will keep your foot at a lower angle, relieving you of discomfort.
If you’re looking for something with even less constraint, a mule is perfect. They don’t hug your feet at the back and you can easily slip them on and off.
Top tip: The wrong size will leave you feeling uncomfortable and irritable so be sure to try on a few different pairs until you find the perfect fit.
Swap your stilettos for comfy block heels. You’ll still have the height but much more comfort! This style shoe is sturdier and will keep you feeling secure as the night progresses.
Yes, wedges can work for event-wear – it’s all about the type of shoe and how you wear it. Find a pair in a neutral colour; it will update any outfit while leaving you feeling super comfy. Alternatively, opt for one with embellishments or luxe fabrics like faux snakeskin.
