According to University of Kansas researchers, people can guess about 90 percent of someone's personality characteristics just by looking at their shoes.
That's a lot of pressure for one shoe! That's why it's so important that your favorite pairs of shoes are just as comfortable as they are fashionable.
We all have our favorite shoes whether they are glamorous or tennis shoes. We should never have to sacrifice style and variety for comfort.
Comfortable sandals for women are in high demand no matter what time of year it is. All-year-round women's sandals are a must-have in every woman's closet because you never know when you're going to need a fabulous shoe that supports your foot.
Not every sandal is made equally. How do you know what to look for when you're shopping for women's sandals?
Read on to find out what to keep an eye out for when you're shopping for all-year-round comfortable sandals for women.
Consider Matching and Variety
One thing to consider when shopping for sandals for women is how often you will be able to wear the pair.
It's fun to buy unique and funky sandals or high-heeled sandals, but those are the kinds of shoes you save for special occasions or specific outfits. Leopard print sandals might sound like a fun idea, and they are, but they likely can't be worn every day.
When it comes to a pair of shoes you can wear no matter the season, sticking to classic colors and styles is key. This way you will have a wider variety of clothes that you can wear with your shoes. They will match most of your wardrobe no matter what your style is.
At Flojos Sandals we carry plenty of classic styles, like Sky, a flat woman's sandal featuring a simple woven strap at the front.
Sky is the ideal example of a sandal that can be worn all year long. Its classic design ensures it will pair well with a summer dress, or jeans and a t-shirt, or a skirt and fashionable top.
Best of all, Sky comes in neutral and classic colors that will complement most other colors. Sky comes in black, charcoal, chocolate, and tan.
Opting for colors like these will make it easy and quick to match your sandals with nearly any outfit you wear. It's a good idea to stock up on at least one pair of black sandals and one pair of tan sandals.
The tan sandals will be perfect for daytime outfits and the black ones will complement a nighttime outfit.
What materials your sandals are made of will make all the difference in the world when you wear them. A comfortable shoe is essential for wearability during the whole year. After all, no one wants to spend too much time in uncomfortable shoes.
Too many sandals are made with flat, cheap material that does nothing to support the foot and create a comfortable woman's sandal. Wearing flat shoes can put stress on the inside of your knees or lead to issues like hammertoes, which affects the joint around your toes.
If you're worried about orthopedic issues, take the time to look for shoes that use a special material to ensure that your entire foot is supported.
Flojos' Blair 2.0 sandals are a good example of supportive shoes. Its footbed is made of EVA with an egg crate finish that will cradle and support your foot all day long. It also features a soft nylon toe piece that won't rub your foot the wrong way or bother your toe.
Our Campbell style of sandal is also made with your ultimate comfort in mind and uses premium materials to give your feet the best experience.
Campbell features MEMEX material, which is a type of memory foam that performs like a shock absorber with each step you take.
The leather strap across the front features a comfort liner so that your feet don't become irritated in the sandal throughout the day.
Invest in comfortable women's sandals that will support your feet while keeping you stylish. Your feet will thank you and you can walk all day long without hurting them.
Finding the Right Fit
Similar to finding a shoe made with good material, finding a shoe that fits you just right is important when choosing shoes you're going to wear often.
You might think that a style as simple as a sandal means that size doesn't matter as much as it does with closed-toed shoes. But you would be wrong!
A sandal that is too big, even if it is just by a little, will be so uncomfortable it's unlikely you'll be able to make it through the day without tripping over your own feet.
Wearing sandals that are too big also makes it likely that any straps or ties will be rubbing against your toes or feet all day. That friction can irritate your skin and cause blisters or create cuts on your foot. Not to mention how hard it will be to simply walk all day.
A sandal that is too small can also be problematic and uncomfortable. Wearing shoes that are smaller than your foot can make it hard to walk and keep your balance while you walk.
It may also lead to flat feet, numbness, inflammation, or create pain in the heel or ball of your foot.
Any straps on the shoe can dig into your skin or rub against your skin and create cuts and blisters on the top of your foot or between your toes.
If you find a shoe that you love and it doesn't fit just right, skip it. Your feet will be much happier in the right size.
