Perfect Prom Shoes - Simple Tips On How To Find Them

By Jason Anderson

You've spent countless hours searching for the perfect prom dress, and finally found it. Now you need to find the perfect shoe to go with your dress. But it doesn't have to be hard! All you need to know is a few fashion tricks, and the perfect prom shoe will be yours.

The most important thing to keep in mind is comfort. It doesn't matter how amazing and fantastic the shoe that you pick is - if you are unable to walk by the end of the night, it was the wrong one! How can you look at your best if your feet feel like they are about to fall off?

High heels are a common style of shoe, and for good reason - they make your legs look longer and slimmer and force you to keep good posture. But you don't need to go ridiculous with the heel height. Two-inch heels are more than enough to give the desired effect while saving your poor feet.

If you are used to them, strapped dress sandals are quite popular and can be worn with most dresses. But they can be a pain to wear - you may find it more comfortable to choose a dress shoe with an enclosed toe. If you get an enclosed toe, make sure they have a soft, cushioned upper lining (leather is preferable).

Another option for shoes that are extremely comfortable to wear are ballet shoes. Unfortunately they are only suitable with full skirts (they just don't look right with tight fitted dresses).

It probably doesn't need to be said, but do ensure that you pick shoes that are the correct size for you. Shoes that are too big or too small will never feel comfortable, and a shoe that is too big could leave you with blisters or even come off at an embarrassing moment!

Once you have decided on your shoes for the prom, make sure you wear them in before the night. The easiest way to do this is to wear them around the house for an hour or so each day for a week. If you aren't used to the style of shoe you bought, this also gives you a chance to become used to them.

One final tip; it can be difficult to find a colour that matches exactly, so you will have two options. You can try to find a complementary colour (for example, black to go with a dark coloured dress), or if the shoe is the right type you can dye it to match.

If you decide to dye your shoes, remember that dyed items look different indoors compared to outdoors. For example, shoes dyed grey may take on a purple tone outside. There is nothing that can be done to stop this, so be sure to tell your dyer if the event is indoor or outdoor.
