How to choose your women's heeled sandals?

The guide who will give you tips for finding shoes that do not hurt your feet and who will teach you which shoes to choose and how to wear them.

The 3 essential criteria to take into consideration when buying heeled sandals in order to keep them as long as possible and which will immediately adapt to your feet.

1.

THE MATERIAL OF SANDALS

With the heat of summer, it is better to choose leather sandals to avoid sweating and having blisters.

So pay attention to the country of manufacture , made in Italy is the most suitable (we explain why here) and the material of your sandals.   

 

Prefer sandals entirely in leather, the upper than the insole.

Go for a beautiful smooth leather or suede.

2.

CHOOSE A HEEL SUITABLE FOR YOU

The heel height is very important in your choice. Avoid choosing a height that you usually don't, or very rarely, unless you need a pair of high-heeled sandals for a special occasion.

The 5 cm heel is very suitable for sensitive feet. The 7cm heel stays comfortable all day long and the 9cm heel is reserved for those who are used to it.

Take into consideration that the thicker the heel, the easier it is to wear them. It is also true that a thin heel is more dressy and elegant.

THE OPPORTUNITY TO WEAR THEM

Before buying a model, consider whether it is to wear them daily or from time to time in the evening.

If you are looking for sandals to wear all day, in the city, at the office and why not for an aperitif, opt for a timeless model, in good leather and with a practical 7/8 cm heel.

A little history of sandals

Sandals were invented by the Egyptians to protect themselves from the heat of the sand.

They were made from papyrus fiber around 3000 BC. AD In Egypt, a true symbol of royal power, only the pharaohs and free men could be endowed with it. They were made from footprints made in wet sand in which braided papyrus was molded and rawhide straps added.

Symbol of freedom on the one hand, but also dedicated to protecting important beings from the dangers of the soil on the other, the wearing of the sandal was codified from Antiquity among the Greeks.

But sandals and sandals were considered until very late to be too undressed to be worn in the city.

It was in 1950 with Salvatore Ferragamo that the pretty Italian sandals came to complete the dresses.

Sandals and their power

It is the summer shoe par excellence but not only.

The sandal has survived the centuries, in turn embodying religious, social, political or simply aesthetic positions.

The need to free your feet has taken over almost everywhere in the world and in France, Colette, Cocteau, Picasso or Bardot are adopting the famous Tropéziennes. K.Jacques and Rondini, become the biggest competitors in the South.

In Italy, in Capri, it is Amadeo Canfora who attracts all eyes by putting on Jackie Kennedy in 1962 .
