Spot a Quality Heel

WEAR YOUR real SHOE SIZE
If you are an 8 ½, wear an 8 ½, and not an 8. Don’t focus on the number think about how you would look after a couple of hours in that too small shoe. Your face would be a lot happier if your feet were. Get your size! Plus you won’t have to stretch them out which extends the life of your shoe also.

LOOK AT HOW THE SOLE IS ATTACHED TO THE SHOE.
If the sole is stitched on, make sure the stitches are even and look secure. If it’s glued on, check to make sure that there is no space around the edges where the sole could start to peel off. You want a bottom that’s seamless and isn’t going anywhere.

More expensive shoes are usually sewn to the sole, hand-stitching, or more likely machine stitching is more time consuming.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE LINING.
In high-quality shoes, the insole lining is usually made of leather, not a synthetic material, and goes all the way around the inside of the shoe. If the shoe only has padding on the bottom but not the sides (that’s where people get confused on stretching their shoes if it doesn’t have a full leather insole it’s not going anywhere).

MATERIAL MATTERS.
The leather is the most popular material for high heels. Make sure that you buy shoes that aren’t made out of synthetic fibers like nylon or plastic. These will be extremely uncomfortable after a few wears, and won’t last nearly as long.
