Spring/summer is one of the busiest times of the year, filled with parties, luncheons, break-up occasions and of course Christmas dos. You know what that means, right? You got it: new shoes. Below are a few tips to give to customers on choosing the correct footwear for all their spring/summer special occasions.

When it comes to shopping for evening shoes: only the shoes or the dress should be overly embellished.

If you’re wearing a dress that’s covered in sequins, or another eye-grabbing detail, then nothing will set it off more than a pair of simple shoes.

A pair of shimmery, glistening, over the top evening shoes will really add punch to a basic evening dress.

Of course, every rule has its exceptions but evening shoes that complement an outfit are always going to be an easier choice than shoes that compete with it.

Here are a few things to look for in evening shoes:

Embellishments: Most heels that feature rhinestones, bows or rosettes fall into the “evening shoe” category.

Luxurious Fabrics: The easiest way to choose footwear that will work for eveningwear is to look for shoes with satin uppers. Suede and patent are also good choices, provided that the shoes are very dressy, and not necessarily something you’d wear to the office.

Happily, some newer innovations have succeeded at making evening shoes much more bearable than they used to be.

Our ShoeSales.com.au FOOTCARE range carries a wide variety of inserts and products aimed at making women’s shoes more comfortable, and some shoe lines have special comfort features built right into them like 3mm of padding under the balls of the foot.

I have been shoe-obsessed for the greater part of my life! From stick figures with elaborately illustrated heels as a child, to my first part-time job in a shoe boutique, to a Cinderella tale of marrying into a 'shoe' family! I was a destined cobbler. The last 20 years have been dedicated to footwear design. I blend my knowledge of colour, material and form to create silhouettes that evoke glamour and elegance. I draw every sketch, select materials and finalise each construction detail that produces all ShoeSales.com.au shoes. I do this with passion - appealing to conservative, eclectic and adventurous personalities and tastes. My philosophy “give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world!” Google Plus
