Whether you're standing all day at work or dancing the night away, you want to be comfortable in your shoes. Heels can be a stylish addition to any outfit, but they're not always the most comfortable option.
There are a few different types of heels that are more comfortable than others.
If you're looking for a pair of comfortable heels, consider one of the following five options.
Wedges are a great option for those who want to stay comfortable while wearing heels. The wider base of the heel provides more stability than a stiletto, and the platform underneath the toes helps to distribute your weight evenly. Wedges come in various heights, so you can find one that suits your needs. They also come in many different styles, including sandals, boots, and pumps, so you can easily find a pair to match any outfit. Wedges can be dressed up for a night out, or dressed down for a casual day.
Platforms are a great choice for those who want to add a few extra inches to their height without sacrificing comfort. The elevated sole gives you additional stability, and the platform also helps to distribute the weight of your body more evenly. Platforms come in various styles, from sandals to pumps, so you can easily find a pair to match any outfit. The thicker sole also helps to absorb shock, making them a great choice for those who are standing for long periods.
3. Kitten Heels
Kitten heels are a great choice for those who want to add a bit of height without sacrificing comfort. The low heel is typically less than two inches tall, making them a great option for those who don't want to wear a full-on stiletto. Kitten heels come in various styles, from pumps to sandals, so you can easily find a pair to match any outfit. The lower heel height also makes them a great choice for those who are standing for long periods of time.
4. Low Heels
Low heels are a great choice for comfortable footwear. They typically have a heel height of 2 inches or less, making them much easier to walk in than higher heels. Low heels also provide more stability than higher heels, making them a great option for those with foot, ankle, or knee problems. They come in a variety of styles, from classic pumps to modern mules, giving you plenty of options to choose from. Plus, low heels can be dressed up or down, making them a versatile addition to any wardrobe.
5. High Heels
Comfortable high heels? Yes, it's absolutely possible to be comfortable in high heels - even heels that have a 9cm. But you do need to be buying from a business that understands how to make comfortable high heels, because it's not achievable with a stilleto - never has been, and never will be.
That doesn't meant that you can't wear high heels though!
Preston Zly makes the world's most comfortable high heels and we create them that way specifically using 25+ years of shoe craftsmanship know-how to perfect the heel.
BONUS: Flats (obviously!)
Flats are the most comfortable type of heel, providing a low level of elevation with no heel at all. They come in various styles, including ballet flats, oxfords, loafers, and mules. Flats are perfect for daily wear and look great with jeans, skirts, and dresses. They're also great for standing for long periods since they provide more support than other types of heels. Flats are ideal for people with foot issues since they provide a flat surface and don't put extra pressure on the feet. They're also the most budget-friendly option, making them a great choice for those on a tight budget.
There are many different types of heels to choose from, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. The most important thing is that the shoes you're looking to buy from are made by master crafts people who understand foot anatomy and design the high heel for comfort (and style).
But most importantly, if you're looking for comfortable high heels, you're looking for a high heel that has a heel larger and wider than your average stiletto.
This will make the high heel far easier to walk in and much more stable than something with a small top piece.
