When shopping for heels, the easiest way to guarantee they’ll be comfortable is to make sure that you have enough room around your toes. Check these two things when you’re shopping to pick the best pumps for you:
- Test for cushioning. When you press down on the sole in the ball area of the shoe, it should give a little or feel slightly padded.
- Look for false fronts. Especially when buying pointy toed shoes, you want the point to extend farther than your toes do, which will prevent them from being crowded together.
If you end up with a pair that aren’t so comfortable once you’ve worn them, try these inserts to make them a little easier on your feet.
