Today, it's time to take a stand against party shoes that hurt your feet. While we might have embraced comfort for our day footwear, with flat biker boots and sneakers being the shoes of choice, when it comes to evening events, we're still stuck on the idea that only the highest of heels will do. But no more! When you're heading out to your work office party, Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve dos, rest assured that we've got you covered when it comes to footwear that is just as easy to dance in all night as it is chic. So what makes a lower-heel shoe party-appropriate? I have a few stipulations.
Firstly, metallic or bold colours are always a great option as they'll add a bit of pizzaz to your outfit. And we all know how important pizzaz is when it comes to festive events. Secondly, any kind of embellishment, such as a gold heel, feathers or studding, is another great way to make your shoes feel party-ready. Finally, don't discount strappy sandals; not only will they last you throughout the whole year into summer, but you can also always pair them with metallic socks if you know your feet will get cold.
