How to choose women's boots
When going to the store, women are guided, of course, not by the brand in the first place, several important factors influence the choice.
- Season. For winter, puffy boots, leather products with a fur inner insert are suitable, today high-quality leatherette is in demand, inside the natural material can replace a warm bike or other textiles with insulation. Demi-season shoes are made from similar materials, but without insulation.
- Style. It is determined by the clothes or features of the woman's legs. So, for full calves, it is difficult to find graceful boots with a thin stiletto heel, such are usually equipped with a flat sole, a small wedge heel or a stable minimal heel. Clothing is no less important: for a long skirt on a slender leg, you can wear both boots and boots of medium length to the middle of the calf or slightly above it, but with a normal fit. If you intend to wear a sock with jeans or leggings inside, the shaft should be wide.
- Closure type. Lace up or zipper? The question is not only aesthetic, but also practical: for a full shin, the presence of a lace almost to the toe is a real salvation, because the width of the boot is thus regulated. A zipper is a versatile option, but a windproof lining is required.
- Convenient shoe. Responsible manufacturers make even high-heeled boots comfortable: an instep support, a hard heel, pads under the toes – all these elements should be in shoes of any style.
- Material. Demi-season and winter boots can be made of natural or artificial leather, suede, textiles. In this matter, one should focus on the characteristics of the climate and the way of wearing. If wet snow predominates in the city, it is better to choose dense waterproof leather or leatherette, for those who drive or walk in the snow, soft suede or textiles are more suitable – these are breathable materials.
- To balance all the factors together and choose the perfect pair of boots is often only a fitting. It is important that the shoes fit perfectly on the leg, you should not take them with due regard to the 'spacing' – it may not happen, and the appearance of the product may change somewhat.
