Many of my clients come to me with foot issues. Almost every single one tells me this with an apology.
Why? Because she feels she’s the only woman who can’t wear “pretty” shoes and mourns the loss.
This is actually totally normal.
Foot issues comes from years of wearing shoes that do not actually support your feet. You can wear comfortable shoes and look and feel great! In fact, I haven’t worn an uncomfortable shoe in 9 years!
Street style stars have freed the sneaker from the gym and daily commute and have showed us how to pair them with everyday looks for chic and comfort. Wear them with dresses, suits or jeans, it’s possible to walk on a cloud every day.
If sneakers are not appropriate in your workplace, not to worry. Thanks to Michelle Obama, we’ve been seeing flat shoes with suits, dresses and skirts for years. Whether you go for a flat boot or a kitten heel, depending on your particular foot issue, you can walk easily at work as well.
How We Solve It:
- Add a fancy, decorated sneaker to your simple Casual Friday or Weekend looks.
- Try a flat over-the-knee or Chelsea boot with skirts and dresses.
- If you have issues with your calves, wide-calf options exist or you can look for a boot with a stretch panel in back (or both).
- If you can’t wear flats, try a low or kitten heel.
Try It Yourself:
Above are some of the simple and easy tactics I use with clients (and on myself) to deal with foot issues. There are many elements, tricks and tactics we can employ to help you look and feel your best every single day — these are just a few. Try them and see if they work for you!
