We want to encourage every woman out there to feel comfortable with her shoe size and celebrate her uniqueness. Still, we know how difficult it can be to have feet bigger than average. Especially when people also comment on them: “You have big feet, young lady! Where do you find shoes anyway?” However, bigger feet don't mean you have to wear shoes that aren't your first choice. Feminine and favorable shoes come in all sizes! Here are some tricks you can use while buying shoes:
FIND THE RIGHT SHAPE
Look for shapes that frame the foot optimally and leave no unnecessary space. A round toe is best. Squared shapes and wide pointed toes also work well. Be careful with narrow and long pointed shapes. Often these shoe shapes are too small for wide feet.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT DESIGN
In addition to the shape of the toe, the design is also crucial. Straps are a great tool here, as they can visually divide the foot. So, a tip: don't buy shoes that have straps placed exactly at the beginning of the toes, as they make the toes look longer. In general, choose a deep toe cutout, regardless of whether you have open or closed toes. This visually shortens the toes and makes the shoe appear more delicate and feminine.
USE COLORS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
Shoes can be optically interrupted by different colors, making them look more feminine. Pastel tones are particularly suitable in combination with darker colors or patterns - e.g. Leo. Be careful with colors that are lighter than your own skin color, as these will visually enlarge the foot. Applications also help to visually interrupt the foot. Larger buckles or bows on the toes and instep distract from the size of the shoe.
WEAR HIGH HEELS
The heel is another important tool for making the foot appear shorter. The higher the heel, the smaller the shoe looks. But please stay away from platform heels. Platform heels tend to enlarge the foot. We know that many of you don't want to wear high heels because you are already tall. But we think you should be proud of your size and be proud to accept it. Being tall is beautiful and anyone who says otherwise is just too small to understand. ;)
We hope this article has been helpful to you and don't forget that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. The most important thing is to feel good.
Lots of love,
