New Delhi, July 15 (SocialNews.XYZ) What you wear on your feet can make or break your look. An overall flattering appearance can only be achieved with the right pair of shoes. It gives you the confidence to walk, move and feel very differently! If your toes are muffled or your heels stick out with every step, or you have a dangling toe, you are wearing the wrong size shoes.
The wrong shoe size can have a negative impact on your health, with detrimental effects on your body that can linger for years. For women, it is essential to choose the right shoe size taking into account their weight, height and level of comfort required.
Veena Ashiya, Founder and CEO of Monrow Shoes – Homegrown D2C Shoe Brand, says, “You might feel like you’re overdoing it, but the wrong shoes that don’t provide enough support, compress the feet, or don’t complement the arch your feet, can lead to serious side effects.Severe back pain, poor posture, and excruciating hip and lower back pain, in rare cases, are a possibility.
He further adds, “A woman’s pelvic and menstrual health is strongly linked to how meticulously she chooses the right shoes for herself. Wearing the wrong size and the wrong type of shoes, such as heels, tends to push the pelvic region forward and the hips. behind, triggering irregular menstruation and infertility in women.”
Veena shares some shoe options to try:
Kitten Heel: If you have trouble walking in high heels or are taller but don’t want to avoid wearing attractive heels because of it, kitten heels are the best option. This heel is often thin and short (less than three inches).
Block heel: In addition to being incredibly chic and trendy, the chunky block heel is also ideal for ensuring the health of your feet. It distributes your body weight differently than thinner heels. They take some pressure off the front of your foot, allowing you to stand more comfortably.
Wedge Heels: Wedge heels are ideal for women looking for extra height but without the extra pain. Although they are elevated, they differ from conventional heels in that the weight is evenly distributed making walking comfortable. Plus, they’re perfect for new moms who want to look stylish but have trouble walking in pointy heels.
Hourglass Heels: For those who have recently started wearing heels, hourglass heels are a blessing in disguise. They are wide at the top and bottom and a bit narrow in the middle, which helps to create balance. Therefore, these heels are ideal for women who want to combine comfort and fashion.
Shoes and our overall health are inextricably linked. Understanding this, shoe brands offer varied options of heel types, heights, and shoe styles to ensure that consumers have an ocean of options to choose from without ever compromising on comfort. So, it’s up to us to choose shoes that hug our feet like a natural footprint!
