Why You Should Splurge On a High-Quality Shoe

Shoes can be sacred fashion, depending on who you’re talking to. Are you a shoe-a-holic and still ponder at that amazing $500 pair in the window display of your favorite department store, asking yourself, “Are they worth it?” If so, this article will help you make that ultimate decision. If you like quality over quantity, this article will also help you make a final choice. Let’s take this step by step on why you should splurge on a high-quality shoe.

While there are many reasons on why you should splurge on a high-quality shoe, comfort is the top reason why you shouldn’t feel bad about price. Especially when it comes to the heel category, you want to be as comfortable as possible if you are heading for a night out or have an all-day event and still need to look chic. If you slipped your feet into a $30 pair of heels, it’s most likely you have a pair of flats in your bag already on your feet after just an hour; you can always feel a difference. A pair of high-quality heels, on the other hand, are more durable so you can stand all day without the aches, pains and the “my feet hurt” face. Padded footbeds make all the difference which most high-end designers have in their products.


Have you ever felt wobbly in heels after wearing them for less than an hour? That probably means they’re on the less expensive spectrum. Splurging on high-quality shoes means more stability. Designer heels will be made to best suit your feet no matter how tall they are. Flats, sandals, sneakers can also cause instability when they only cost $20. Flats, for example, can hurt your feet because there is no support. But when you have a well-made version, your feet will still feel like they are on Cloud Nine. Have sneakers rubbing in all the places they shouldn’t? Get the right fit, feel and look --- spend a little more without the guilt! Stability is key because you want a pair of shoes to last you through the entire day.


High-Quality Flats and Heels

When it comes down to details, splurging on a high-quality shoe will be worth your while.  If you compare the stitching and quality of materials used, you can tell which shoe was made better when compared to a lower price tier. Another perk is that your expensive shoes will last longer! Low-end shoes are more likely to be made of plastic or “faux” materials, meaning they will not last much longer than after a few wears in. Luxury takes the win when it comes to details, and compliments will always come your way when wearing a nice pair of shoes!

High-Quality Shoe's are Worth It

If you are opting for classics such as a nude heel, you can get multiple uses out of them for multiple seasons. These timeless pumps will most likely never go out of style, so the heel should be comfortable and wearable for long periods of time --- all the more reason why you should splurge on a high-quality shoe.

Quality is always a selling point, no matter what type of shoe you are searching for. With splurging on high-quality shoes, you will never have to worry about them not being up to par. You will never second guess yourself even when all you see are dollar signs. Next time you are drooling over those shoes in the window calling your name, go in, try them on and don’t feel guilty about the price tag; it’ll all be worth it in the long run!
