How To Choose Shoes That Won't Uglify Your Feet

The higher the heel, the better your feet may look while wearing them-but barefoot is another story. Podiatrists agree that high heels are bound to damage your feet in some way.

Can't compromise on height? At least pay close attention to size.

Make sure your shoes aren't too big; otherwise, your toes will grip the toe box, which can contribute to hammertoe. However, when buying pointy-toed shoes, go one half-size larger than normal to allow ample room so your toes won't get crushed.

Keep in mind, when you shop for shoes can make a major difference in how they'll ultimately fit. You'll get your most comfortable results if you shop in the afternoon, when your feet are their most swollen.
