I love fashion and I love styling my pieces. I organised my wardrobe yesterday, and it was so much fun checking out pieces for my next outfit photos, and implementing my capsule wardrobe tips. I truly enjoy writing about fashion, and dressing up, and I feel many do enjoy it too but from a distance. Many people believe clothes do not look good on them as they would like, or are not aware of a few fashion tricks and tips, so this post is all about some fashion hacks for shoes, you may or may not have heard of.

Gel Inserts

Heels give your outfit the ‘WOW’ effect but can also be uncomfortable so add gel inserts into your shoes for extra comfort. You can also carry them around in your handbag for when your legs get tired or your feet gets sore. You don’t have to suffer to look stylish. Just make sure your shoes have a bit of room for the gel inserts. Moreover, wearing high heels very often can sometimes cause foot abnormalities. In these cases, it is recommended to wear Morton’s neuroma inserts to help relieve the stress on the nerves.

Go Platforms

In my ‘How to walk in heels‘ post, I mentioned how easy it is to walk in platforms unlike stilettos. Platforms are dead comfy and stylish, so they are the best heels to rock. High-rise platforms add the needed height and the ‘WOW’ to the look, without stress and discomfort. Remember, the thicker the heel, the more comfortable the shoes will be. St

Try the Wriggle Test

When buying closed toe shoes/pumps, make sure you have adequate breathing space for your toes. Make sure you can wriggle your toes freely. If you can’t do this, do not buy.

Avoid Buying Shoes Online

I love online shopping as you should all know by now, but I always try to buy my shoes in stores, so I can walk around in them and be assured I am comfortable walking in them before buying. Apart from the wriggle test above, I always go shoe shopping at the end of my shopping trip, when my feet is hot and swollen from all the walking around. This is so that I have a good idea of how they would fit if I wear them all day.

Shoe Shapers

Ensure you keep your shoes in shoe trees when not in use. This will extend the life of your shoes, and maintain the shape.
