Fashion Trends, Tips for you

How to choose the perfect pump!

Elegant, feminine and sexy. We love them for highlighting our femininity and adore them for upgrading all of our day-to-night outfits!

Our body type plays a major role when it comes to showing off our figure and personal style. This happens by emphasizing our “strong” points and making the appropriate purchases based on them. However, pumps have been considered the ultimate feminine symbol since forever! That’s why we have prepared a tips guide for you, so you know what you should take notice of with your next purchase. Show off your body and style, without compromising your confidence with tired legs!

What should you pay attention to so that your pumps don’t tire you out?

Toe cap: Try both pointy and round heels in order to discover which design you feel most comfortable in, so that your feet don’t feel any pressure. Our toes play an important role for the correct position of our body, since they are the tip of our foot and balance.

The bending arch of your foot: one of the most essential criteria, before we buy a heeled shoe, is that the arch of our foot must fit well with the angled base of the heel. There are various designs with similar heels that have a different shoe sole between them. We suggest that you always try them all on and if you can’t, at least try most of them before making your final decision.

Knees and height: Depending on how our body is shaped, but also on how much we exercise, our knees will be the first part of our body to feel ‘pain’ and give us the sense of fatigue and poor balance. You need to have trust in your knees in order to make the right decision regarding the height and width of the heel, having the right balance and not getting tired by the height! After you have decided on the height of the heel you feel most at ease with, then you should try out both a thin and thick heel.

Find the right support either from a stiletto or a block heel: We love the aesthetic of a stiletto, but also the comfort of a thick block heel. Just like the stiletto gives us a sexy touch of confidence, a chunky heel gives us better balance, without having to compromise the height we desire.

Fastening: Whether it has an ankle strap or is lacy, the way a pump is fastened plays a role in our comfort and how our feet are held by them. You can choose to have an extra strap in order to have a better and more stable tread.

Consider all of the above, try on the heels you already have in your wardrobe and after you have distinguished which style meets your criteria, then you can start thinking about your next conquest! Check below for all of our selections for every kind of style!

And always remember, confidence and beauty come from our smiles. 😊
