There are many different styles of womens shoes on the market that are designed for different uses. Navigating the world of womens shoes can be difficult, especially if you’re looking for a gift for a loved one and you don’t know where to begin. The following guide will help you understand the different types of womens shoes and their uses.
Your Options for Womens Shoes
Womens Basketball Shoes:
Womens basketball shoes are sturdy, lace up shoes that look like sneakers. They are designed for intense physical activities, such as playing basketball. They usually include shock absorbing soles, and special venting technology to keep feet cool and dry. When you look for a pair of womens basketball shoes, look for a shoe with plenty of support underneath, and a supportive, but not obstructive ankle area. There should be plenty of tread on the bottom of the shoe, and it’s best if the bottom is not significantly wider than the top to avoid tripping.
Womens Running Shoes:
Womens running shoes are lightweight and flexible. They offer a slightly cushioned sole, and a shock absorbing heel. You’ll notice that most womens running shoes are cut low, to allow for maximum range of motion. The big thing you need to look for if choosing running shoes for someone else is the proper width. You can find your loved ones width printed on other pairs of shoes. A W on the tag on the tongue of the shoe indicates a wide width. It’s important to get the correct width of shoe for maximum comfort. Not all brands of womens shoes come in different widths, so make a mental note of the general width of her feet before you try to buy running shoes for her.
Cheap Womens Shoes:
If the woman you’re buying shoes for isn’t going to use them for a specific activity, you can get something that looks nice, but isn’t necessarily the best quality. Cheap womens shoes are a great way to add to the special woman in your life’s shoe collection without breaking the bank. Shoes she will only wear once or twice don’t need to be the highest quality. If you’re treating her to a night out on the town and surprising her with a new outfit and shoes to match, you can get away with buying a cheaper pair of shoes because she will likely only wear them once or twice then stash them in the closet. You can find cheap womens shoes at mass merchandisers, or discount shoe stores.
Finally, there are the specialty shoes. Trendy Sofft shoes for women would be considered specialty shoes, as well as Jimmy Choo’s or Ugg Boots. In terms of gift giving, specialty womens shoes are the most impressive and also the most expensive type of gift you could give, but it would certainly be well received!
There are many types of womens shoes to choose from. Designers come out with new styles and fashions each season and womens shoes trends change with the seasons. If you’re uncomfortable choosing shoes, or don’t know the size of the woman you’re looking at shoes for, don’t be afraid to give her a gift certificate so she can pick her own!
