The frustration of women’s dress shoe collections. Even for wholesale clothing buyers. How do you feel?

When women go shopping for fun, that is, other than to the grocery store, clothes and shoes top the list. Most women have more of both than they can wear in a month’s worth of different costumes, but despite that, there’s always room for more choices in the wardrobe. While clothing doesn’t usually cause pain (unless you’re into the corseted look), shoes all too often do.

Decades ago, women’s shoes were available in many more sizing options than they are today. You could be fitted for an extra narrow heel and a wide foot, all in one shoe. Now you’re lucky if you can find anything besides the length. No more AAA sizing for the extra narrow heel, or a B width for the fulsome foot. This usually works out all right with sandals or other casual shoes. However, when it comes to women’s dress shoes, it’s far more difficult.

If you work in an office where you need to wear dress shoes frequently, or all of the time, you probably spend a lot of time pursuing the elusive, good-looking women’s dress shoes. You may have a dozen pair of attractive dress shoes in your closet, with nary a one that doesn’t have you soaking your painful, tired feet at the end of the day. Even if you wear dress shoes only occasionally, a painful shoe can wreak havoc with your enjoyment of the evening, because your feet are killing you! Finding the perfect pair of dress shoes requires the right shopping strategy.

Women’s dress shoes generally have certain characteristics, such as high heels, a classic design and a cut that fits snugly around your foot, for aesthetic reasons. The toe area is typically pointed, unlike your foot. The last of the dress shoe is quite rigid and unforgiving of the weight of your body. No flexibility such as is afforded by a comfy sneaker. Given that this is what you’ve got to work with, let’s see how you can find a woman’s dress shoe that accommodates your poor, aching feet, while satisfying the requirement for a dressy shoe.

The first step is to shop for high quality shoes. Yes, you’ll pay more, but isn’t having one truly comfortable pair a better alternative than buying three pairs that hurt? Another characteristic of women’s dress shoes is that they tend to come in the old stand-by colors: black, navy, beige and so on. If you could have only two pairs of good women’s dress shoes, you could get by and match those two up with just about everything in your dress wardrobe. So, get yourself to an exclusive shoe shop and see what you can find. One advantage of the upscale shoe salon is that they usually have shoe fitters who try very hard to please you and your feet. They stock pricey shoes, but you’ll find Spanish and Italian leathers that are soft as butter, with a last that flexes with the movement of your foot. Many shoe fitters will bend the shoe in half, to demonstrate the shoe’s quality. Such shoes are worth the price.

Expensive women’s dress shoes are usually simple in design, for a reason. They are meant to be decorated with shoe ornaments, clip-on adornments which can change the look of the shoe to suit the occasion. For example, a rhinestone studded shoe ornament is perfect for a night at the ballet. For a business meeting, you can wear them plain or use a simple shoe ornament. With sufficient ornamentation, you can have five shoes in one!

The other side of this story is anatomical. Cheap women’s dress shoes will ultimately produce bunions, hammertoes and never-ending pain. Buy quality women’s dress shoes for a classy look and comfortable feet!

Just a fun thought. Nothing like wholesale clothing shoes.
