Stability and how well a shoe is able to go along with movements are some of the important factors that the wearer should think about while wearing shoes around Japan. The simplest shoe can have good comfort elements if the wearer is willing to take the time to feel them out by trying on different pairs. When a foot is able to show how much it’s been loved after a long day’s walk, then what this means is that the shoe and wearer were in agreement. When the wearer slips them off, we will be able to have a good idea of whether or not the day with the shoe was successful, not to mention any obvious pain that the wearer might be in. What the wearer might consider best though is how well comfort and their feet go along with the heel’s style. The style of the heel is a necessary element of the shoe to consider since it can be designed and placed onto shoes in many creative variations. It is a connection between the comfort of the foot and design. A well worn heel is a sign that this connection was something that managed to work out, with the wearer feeling confident about her feet and feeling good while walking. People should take caution when dealing with heel styles, especially if they care about the display for their toe. The toe doesn’t suffer from the heel, but from how the heel and the rest of the shoe display them as a result. With a great heel style the toes are nicely displayed from the hallux to the smallest one, with the hallux (big toe) resting nicely in front and showing the nail polish neatly.

In some shoe models, the heel style is successful in taking advantage of how the shoe design manages the heel of the foot itself. An open heel design leads the way for revealing the lightness of our foot and gives our foot exposure to the feeling of support. If then heel of the foot is exposed because of design, then the heel and the design introduce us to whatever feeling of support may be available. A heel that is supported by design reveals its beauty along with the shoe, with the skin of the foot showing itself in different ways. For a more firm and active heel style, we could take a look at thick heel and party heel. The thick heel is a feature of the shoe that would guarantee that the wearer has a stance and an outfit that is in motion. It shows that the wearer understands how her movements are put together with her outfit and that the selection of shoe design is assured. The shoe becomes cute and adorable with solid color thick heels, being able to be worn with a variety of casual and small outing outfits or on a nice, regular routine day. The party heel has a different kind of confidence, and knowing how well you and your shoes will fit in is a must. Party heels require that the wearer have a sure idea of what she wants from them and nothing else. To be the life of the party is possible but what we really need from party heels are shoes that would lift us up as soon as we began movement within our environment. It’s not the freedom of a soaring eagle, but more like the freedom of a queen with a massive wingspan or maybe something more personal and closer to our own identity and how that identity might express itself within an environment suitable for party heels. In any heel style, we might run into a counter (the back part) that hugs the heel of our foot in a way that allows our feelings about how we look in an outfit or how we walk over time to come into play. The best heel styles are those that can love our foot from the counter to the insole.
