The Low-Down on Heels for Easter

altSince Orthopedists and Podiatrists have already shown us there’s a direct link between high heels and about 90% of all foot and ankle issues for women, then why not consider some lower heel options for Easter that still look great, but without killing your feet?

The neverending battle over heel height on women’s shoes, has been a black or white issue for quite sometime now. It seems that we’re either towering around on a staggeringly high pair of heels or wedges, or else we’re all the way back down to sea level surrounded by the abundance of adorable flats that are now available to us. So with Easter coming up this weekend, it’s the perfect opportunity to consider finding some middle ground on this issue, by trying out a pair of heels with a more down to earth sensibility.

 

altIf you have a hard to fit foot, you’ll be glad to know this Indico Fuschia colored patent leather pump is available in 3 different widths, medium, narrow and wide. And it’s offered in 5 great colors choices too, so you’re sure to find a color that’s just perfect for you.

altThese Ankle Strap Mini Wedges are a great all-season shoe that you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again. Their wonder wedge heel makes them super easy to walk in and they also feature a delicate ankle strap that’s removable so you can change up your look whenever you feel like it.

altBright coral is one of my favorite colors, so I couldn’t be happier that it’s emerging as one of the hottest fashion colors being shown this spring.  And these darling Flounced Coral Slingbacks with their glitter gold heels make them great to wear to work or fun for an evening out too.

altThese bright green pumps will add that needed pop of color to whatever outfit you might wear to Easter Brunch, and since they’re only 2 inches high, you can even wear them to hunt down a few Easter Eggs with the kids if you choose to. So now that you’ve got some less crippling shoe choices to wear for Easter, you’ll not only look great, but you’ll also be able to keep up with everyone else during the egg hunt!
