You ever wear clothing just because it looks good, but it doesn’t feel good? Of course we all have right?!? (and some of us still do) Especially when it comes to shoes. We buy them knowing that our feet will be the ones paying immensely for it later. But since the saying goes “fashion is pain” (I know we usually say that “beauty is pain”, but we’re talking fashion here) we figure we’d just tough it out. Our poor feet suffers from shoe to shoe that are not good for them. And little do we realize, our whole body is being negatively impacted too. Learning a thing or two about how to benefit more when style feels good will help us make better decisions when it comes to the shoes we choose to wear in the future.
For fashion we do almost anything that we believe will cost us only temporary discomfort. I have definitely had my share of days strutting in stiletto heels that ended in my feet feeling cramped up and screaming for mercy. As a young lady seeking the woman in me at that time you couldn’t keep me out of heels and tell me that wearing them as often as I did was bad for me. And unknowingly worse, not only did my feet suffer all those years from wearing them but parts of my body did too (knee aches every now and again are a reminder). It didn’t have a short term effect like I thought.
As I’ve grown into a much more self aware woman, these days I’m into style that not only looks good, I want it to feel good too. That’s why I had to see what SAS Shoes are all about. If I’m being honest, some of the shoes aren’t exactly my style, but in order to stop sacrificing comfort for pain you make it work (amiright or nah?!?). It also means that you’ll end up doing what’s best for your body. Wearing comfortable shoes can have a positive effect on your personal well being, body and health. So it makes you wonder are uncomfortable and fashionable shoes really worth all the hype and pain?
The SAS Shoes I’m wearing are the ginger wedge sandals with plush cushioning, easily adjustable fit and custom metal studs down the front. I thought they were cute and looked comfortable as all get out (and I was right). I was even more impressed after they withstood a seven hour day of walking around the office at work and a three block walk during a lunch break without my feet (or the rest of my body) feeling any tension or pressure. When I tell you that my feet felt amazing as if I never got up all day, they really did.
Thank you SAS Shoes for the complimentary footwear. After wearing them I believe that style can feel good and it is possible for your feet to get the respect it deserves. I can’t wait to wear another pair for the same comforting effect. They’ve changed my whole shoe experience.
