Comfortable Heels You Can Wear All Day
Comfortable heels seem like a mythical dream for many women. Heels are notoriously uncomfortable and painful but despite this, we still love to wear them. Although heels were originally designed for men, in today's world they represent a kind of femininity and power that many women enjoy displaying. They elongate the legs and make us look taller, what’s not to love? What many women don’t know is that there are comfortable heels that are also stylish and do exist!
We all hate that feeling when you’ve finally managed to sit down after a day in uncomfortable shoes, just to find you need to be up and going again straight away. It’s enough to get us to search for a solution to our painful feet, but what if we didn’t need that solution at all. What if we chose to wear comfortable heels in the first place? Butterfly Twists focuses on finding this perfect balance between style and comfort, but we feel this is especially important when it comes to heels. We incorporate lots of different design aspects into our shoes to ensure they are comfortable.
Are Low Heels Comfortable?
The main reason most heels make our feet ache is down to the heel itself - the higher it is the more weight is shifted onto the ball of your foot. This becomes uncomfortable and painful for our feet over time. Another problem is with the size of the heel. For example, stilettos have a very small surface area and so your feet have to work extremely hard to keep you balanced!
These problems can be counteracted by opting for a lower and wider heel. All of Butterfly Twists’ shoes are designed with comfort in mind, that’s why you’ll never want to take our line of low heels off. With a wide, low heel your weight is spread out across the whole of the shoe, making them comfortable for your whole foot.
Memory Foam Insoles for Added Comfort
An important part of keeping feet comfy is having the right insole. Lots of heels are designed in a way that means the surface your foot is against is hard and there’s no way to add your own insole. All of our heeled pumps feature a memory foam insole. Much like the low heel, the memory foam helps to spread the weight of your foot across the whole of the shoe, meaning no area of the foot is under too much pressure.
Another aspect of memory foam that makes comfortable heels is that it acts as a shock absorber. This means that your feet are protected from the impact that is made every time your feet hit the ground. The memory foam is soft but supportive, cushioning your feet so you’ll feel like you’re walking on air. This really is the secret of comfortable heels.
Lightweight Heels for Extra Comfort
Nobody likes clunky shoes as they can really weigh down and wear out our feet. So to find that perfect pair of comfortable heels you need to choose some that are lightweight. You’ll feel light on your feet in our heels, as we know this is a big aspect of feeling comfortable in your shoes. Being lightweight, our heels are also sleek, they’ll make you look effortlessly elegant in every situation. Elongating the legs whether you’re wearing a cute summer dress, or your favourite pair of skinny jeans.
Let Feet Breathe in Comfy Heels
Minimising and eliminating pain when it comes to heels isn’t the only aspect of ensuring they are comfortable. Our feet need to be able to breathe when they are in our shoes, this allows them to stay at a pleasurable temperature and to stop them getting too sweaty. We use breathable materials to make comfy heels. This allows air to flow around your foot, so you won’t be experiencing overly-hot feet during that important meeting, and you certainly won’t be finding your feet sweaty at the end of the day!
Not only are our materials breathable, but they are also vegan. We don’t think gorgeous and comfy footwear should have to come at the price of the environment, that’s why we use materials such as vegan leather and woven textile.
Comfort Without Sacrificing Style
As we’ve said before, our aim with our shoes is to find the perfect balance between comfort and style. With low heels, memory foam insoles, and lightweight and breathable materials we know you’ll be head over heels for these gorgeous shoes.
Available in a range of colours, styles, and materials. From pointed toe heels to rounded toe heels, from black to patterned, and vegan leather to basket weave there’s a perfect heel to go with every outfit. Whether you’re wearing them with jeans to lunch with friends, or with a tailored suit for the office you’ll be comfortable wherever you go.
Another trick to make your heels more comfortable is to wear a pair of socks with them. Obviously socks cannot be worn with all heels but you can wear hidden socks with the majority of our heels. Adding an extra layer of protection between your feet and your shoes, that nobody but you will know about!
If you're still worried about the pain heels cause, then why not opt for a pair of foldable ballerinas that can fit compactly into your handbag? Great for all day wear, or for when those high heels get a little too much!
