Picking out a nice outfit is always a challenging task. But when you throw in the concept of “stylish shoes,” that task becomes even tougher. I hate compromising style for comfort; I know a lot of other people do as well. So, while some might be perfectly fine with wearing un-stylish but comfortable shoes all the time, others might prefer to find shoes that are both stylish and comfortable.

Finding the right balance between these two concepts can be a tricky task. However, there are steps you can take to ensure you get the best of both worlds without having to compromise one or the other. Let’s take a closer look at a few ways you don’t have to pick comfort vs style or vice versa. 

Measure Your Feet

Did you know that our feet generally stop growing around 20-21 years old? Most of us walk into a shoe store and believe that we are so sure of the size of our feet, yet we can be wrong. Even after the 20-year age mark, our feet can still change, which may be due to an injury, swelling, or old age. Regardless of the reason, this is why getting your feet to measure each time you shop for shoes is essential. 

The Right Shoes for You

If you are like the rest of us, a large part of your day is spent on your feet. To do things like get to work and school or just get around in general, our feet carry us from one place to another. But did you know there are over 200 bones in each foot? And we’re often walking all day in shoes that don’t fit properly, which can cause a lot of pain. 

Choosing the right shoe for the job can prevent blisters and other painful foot problems and enhance our overall appearance. With the help of your measurements, you can easily pick out the right shoe for you that will be both comfortable and stylish.

Picking the Type of Shoe – Classic or Sporty

While some people like to stick with a plain classic shoe, plenty of others love bolder, sometimes more modern designs. When it comes to comfort and style, not all shoes can deliver the gold standard in both categories. Designs that are purposeful, like certain hiking or running shoes, offer less comfort but more support. 

On the other hand, sporty shoes such as casual wear tend to be roomier and have little support unless they’re specifically made for certain activities. Still, they are definitely not lacking in any style department. It’s essential to pick the right shoe for the occasion where it will be worn the most. This will ensure you choose the right pair of shoes and  

Shoe shopping can be an exhausting experience, especially if you believe in the misconception of choosing comfort vs style. No longer are the days where you must settle with one or the other. Instead, you can now pick the perfect pair of shoes to go with your outfit without being uncomfortable throughout the day.
