If you want to look your best, finishing off your outfit with a good pair of shoes or sandals is essential. As you will see, the footwear designers have been busy and have come up with some wonderful designs, for 2019.
Comfy cushion walk sandals
There is nothing worse than having sore feet, so it is nice to see cushion soles being used for sandals. JD Williams stocks a particularly big selection of this style of summer footwear. This type of sandal is ideal for the school run or wearing for a job that requires you to stand for long periods. For extra comfort, consider buying the wide fitting kind. You will be surprised by how much of a difference wearing them makes to your long-term foot health.
If you want to be super fashionable, you will need to have a pair of thin-strapped sandals to wear when it is practical to do so. This year, you will see naked or minimalist footwear being worn everywhere. These barely their sandals hark back to the late 90s and 2000s.
But, choose carefully. The straps have to be soft and they need to fit well. If they do not, you could end up with blisters. For women with feet that are prone to blistering and bleeding, sandals that are made from clear PVC would probably be a better way to tap into the barely-there footwear trend.
The sports sandal trend continues
For events like festivals or day trips practical considerations are more important than looks, for many people. Last year, sports sandals went mainstream. This year, it is the turn of hiking and rubber sandals. Multi-strap, Velcro sandals are everywhere. You will even see women pairing them with floaty dresses, a look that works surprisingly well. The classic Arizona sandal is also making a bit of a comeback.
Delicate kitty heels
If you want something more feminine and your feet are too sensitive to wear thin strapped sandals, keep an eye out for kitten heels. In this category, you will find plenty of nice t-bar style versions. They are stylish, stay in place when you walk and fit in well with most dress cuts.
The sculptured heel trend is one that I can’t remember seeing before. It is a great way to make your outfit that extra bit special, so you can stand out from the crowd. They are an especially good option for a wedding or party.
OK, so that is a quick roundup of what is stylish. All you need to do now is to get out there and find your perfect footwear. You can read all about making shoe shopping as easy as possible, by clicking here and reading the article I wrote on that very subject.
You also need to bear in mind that as you age your feet will spread. Weight gains or losses and injuries can also have an impact on foot size. So, it really is worth measuring your feet at least once a year. You can find out how from this comprehensive article.
