In a world where comfort often seems to come at the expense of style, finding footwear that seamlessly combines both elements can feel like hitting the jackpot. For too long, the assumption prevailed that comfortable shoes equate to clunky designs or unstylish trainers.

However, When it comes to comfort, heel height isn’t everything. Pay attention to other important factors, the primary of which is fit. The key is fit throughout the shoe and avoiding slippage. Slippage is the number one cause of discomfort in a shoe.
Next, opt for a tapered front is looking for style. A tapered shoe will elongate your body whilst looking chic!
