Dress shoes are a lot of fun. You can wear them anywhere, and it is so nice to get all dolled up. You can even dress them down for a mixed genre look. The only problem is finding comfortable dress shoes. It makes one wonder if designers know that women expect pain when they dress up, so they don’t even bother making these shoes comfortable. But there are comfortable dress shoes out there, you just need to know how to find them.
Never shop for shoes in the morning. Morning feet and evening feet may actually be different sizes. That is why your shoes are killing you at the end of the day. You see, as the day wears on, your feet begin to swell, just a little. At the end of the day, shoes that felt great in the morning are killing you. So, to get the most accurate fit on new shoes, you must shop at night.
You need to carefully examine each shoe that you consider. Trying on the shoes is a good start, of course, but you need to look at all of the straps. See if the seams are high quality. A lot of uncomfortable shoes are actually low quality shoes. As the shoe slowly wears down, it rubs and irritates your skin. Make sure you are not compromising on quality.
Finally, you need to think through the design. Sky high heels are not comfortable. If you want something easy to find, silver dress sandals are always dressy and generally comfortable. In fact, getting a basic design in silver, like silver character shoes will be one of the easiest way to find comfortable dress shoes.
There is no reason to give up hope in finding dress shoes that are comfortable. You are not to be condemned to sore feet every night you dress up. You need to shop at the right time; evening is best. Examine shoes carefully, and be sensible about the style you choose.
