We think every woman should have a pair of low-heel pumps in her big shoe collection. Dressier than flats, yet much more comfortable than sky-high heels, these pumps boast glamour, comfort and functionality–a triple threat for large feet. Whether they have a kitten, stacked, or wide heel, these up to three-inch heel beauties, will take you from morning to night in style and comfort.
Paired with dark denim, work slacks, pencil skirts, wedding attire, or sheath dresses, the low-heel pump works with the same fashionable clothing as its high-heel counterpart. And the array of styles low-heeled pumps come in fits every occasion.
These styles range from work-appropriate to night-out-on-the-town pumps, small stacked-heel flats to wedding-worthy peep-toe confections. The bonus? These big beautiful shoes look as fashionable as high heels, but will keep large feet comfortable while either recreating the “Gangnam Style” dance at a friend’s wedding, or running errands all over the city.
Yet another reason to add these to your big shoe collection is that many of us large-footed ladies are also tall. For the times when we don’t want to be super tall, these shoes for large feet women are perfect. Slip these big beautiful shoes on and still look über-chic while just adding a couple, of barely there extra inches to your height. With these low heels, us taller ladies can still look runway-ready without feeling like we’d tower over Giselle Bündchen.
And while we absolutely adore our five-inch Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo shoes (pain is beauty!), the fact is they’re not the best for our feet to wear all the time. According to WebMD, “ultra high-heels can lead to everything from ankle sprains to chronic pain,” says podiatrist Hillary Brenner. Brenner recommends occasionally opting for a lower heel to keep feet in good shape. “The lower you go, the more natural your foot position will be,” Brenner says. Slip on a pair of super-chic low-heel pumps to give your foot an occasional break from your stiletto heels.
