I have wide feet. Whenever I try a pair of shoes I like, they don't look nice on my feet. What kind of styles should I wear? I love shoes! :( —Trina Mae Yu via Facebook
It's a little difficult to find shoes for wide feet here in the Philippines compared to the US, where they have shoes that are specifically made for wide feet. Since we have limited resources, we can help you figure out which style of shoes you should wear that suits the size of your feet and will be comfortable. Steer clear of stilettos, because these tend to put all your weight on the balls of your feet. You'll end up with sore toes at the end of the day! Wear chunky heels or wedges instead to make your feet look thinner and smaller. When it comes to the toe of the shoe, square-toed and round-toed shoes would fit you best. You'll have enough space for your toes and sides of your feet to breath. Though pointed shoes will make your feet look slimmer and longer, the pointed tip might hurt your toe and put pressure that might lead to more permanent issues in the muscles and tendons of your foot. Always remember to put comfort first over fashion but if you can manage both, much better.
Wedges and chunky heels will give you height and your feet enough support. Pick a pair that will let your feet some space to breathe. Strappy ones will make your feet look slimmer and sexier.
