Summer goes so well with sandals because sandals give your feet the chance to enjoy the weather, give your feet a great look, and maximum comfort. To get the perfect sandal, these tips will come in handy for you.
1. Always Buy The Right Size Always
How comfortable a shoe will be is directly related as to whether the shoe fits or it does not fit. Therefore, when picking your summer sandals, always try the shoe first. Ensure that there is enough room for your heel at the end of the shoe sandal so that your heel does not hang outside the shoe. Choosing the right size ensures that you do not get an extremely big sandal because your feet will be moving around in the sandal. This will discomfort the feet and strain it. To get a perfect size, have your feet measured at the store first then pick a shoe.
2. Look at The Heel
A good heel will translate to a comfortable heel. The design for sandals is supposed to bring you comfort, make you look good, and feel good. As compared to high heeled shoes, these shoes help your feet relax. Even so, not every heel will be comfortable just because the shoe is a sandal. Let the sandal have a small heel or wedge for great comfort. When the heel is flat on the surface, your feet will be strained same as the Achilles, and the back. The recommended heel should be 0.74 inches for ladies. While looking at the heel, check the cushion to ensure it is also very comfortable; not so tough but should not cage in under your pressure.
3. Get a Shoe With a Great Arch Support
Sandal design always ensures that there is flexibility, comfort, and the shoe has a minimum weight. Because of this, many sandals lack proper arch support, and sometimes it is completely left out, and the shoe is flat like the surface. This is going to strain your feet, and it is unhealthy. As you shop for your summer sandals, always look for the shoe that has a visible and arch. The next step is to try it out to ensure that it offers great comfort and support for your arch.
4. The Design And Designer
If you are going to rock sandals, ensure that you get the best design from the best designers. Whether toe post sandals or otherwise, choose wisely. You can also check whether there are any accessories used on the sandal or not. Make your priority sandals to come from top designers and rarely will you be disappointed.
Now you can be on your merry way to get the best sandals for the summer that will keep you looking stylish and with the bonus of comfort.
So. Yes I am back in Sydney. Back to work in the Fashion Blender office after an amazing holiday in Europe, the French Riviera and the Italian Riviera. All that sun, fresh air and skimpy clothing has gotten me excited about starting my summer wardrobe in preparation for our Australian summer. I am well versed in the pieces that I like; however this year it will be about pushing myself OUT of my comfort zones.
I also must admit that I have a small obsession with Etsy right now. Do you guys use it? I’d love to hear of your experiences. So far mine have only been great ones! I have organised a collaboration with bag company Tana & Hide, I’ve purchased jewellery and a gorgeous real fur bag charm too. All these things feature on my blog and instagram account regularly. I’m also attending the Sydney Etsy Markets on November 28, 2015 too. I am pretty excited about meeting some of the local Etsy creators & sellers. I am always after unique and quality items to inspire me. To inspire my readers.
Let me introduce you to my first pair of unique handmade leather sandals handmade by SandalsOfLove. These beautiful colourful sandals are inspired by Greek culture and Greek Mythology. SandalsOfLove only use genuine, natural materials and all their sandals are hand-crafted. These sandals speak to me of Joy, Love, Freedom, Elegance and Adventure.
I am looking forward to wearing mine this summer because they are bit of fun. They will also be a great way to add colour to any of my summer outfits. I have had a few people ask me already where I got mine from; my SandalsOfLove have TURNED HEADS.
