Heels: A Synthesis of Style and Comfort

InStyle Magazine's recent article, curated by Sarah Felbin and updated on January 31, 2024, explores the world of heels, spotlighting their unique combination of elegance, aesthetics, and comfort. The feature provides a comprehensive guide to the best heels for various occasions, enriched with insights from our very own podiatrist, Dr. Farah Alani, among other fashion experts.

The Ascendance of Heels: A Timeless Trend

Heels have always been a staple in the fashion industry, celebrated for their ability to elevate any outfit. In collaboration with InStyle, Dr. Alani offers essential advice on selecting heels that not only complement personal style but also support foot health. Highlighting the importance of the perfect fit, Dr. Alani advises against heels that require a "break-in" period, underlining the potential damage ill-fitting shoes can inflict over time. To prevent blisters, bunions, and hammertoes over time, and to ensure optimal comfort and durability, Dr. Alani recommends:

  • Trying on heels towards the end of the day when your feet are most swollen to ensure the best fit.
  • Ensuring the heels are wide enough with a sufficiently tall toe box to provide ample space for your toes.
  • Considering a visit to a cobbler to stretch out a tight pair of heels or add extra cushioning to the insole for enhanced comfort.
  • Opting for heels with adjustable features, such as straps or laces, that can be modified for comfort throughout the day.
  • For those with high arches, selecting heels with an extra tall toe box to accommodate the foot shape comfortably.
  • Ensuring the midsole, or the part of the shoe your foot rests on, is thick and padded to absorb shock and protect your knees.
  • A pair of quality heels should have a lifespan that reflects their wear, with the need for re-heeling or replacement evident when you see signs of wear or uneven spots on either side of the heels.
