Flat shoes, low heel, mid heel, high heel or wedges. Women’s shoes have a great variety of heel heights to choose from. The height of the heel is usually connected with comfort. We think of women’s shoes as providing more comfort when they have a lower heel. But there are other factors to take into consideration when deciding whether a flat heel or a pair of high heels is the most comfortable pair of shoes.
If you compare a beautiful Italian soft pair of leather high heel shoes to a pair of flat shoes or low heeled shoes made in a harsh and rigid material obviously the soft leather high heels would win. This is taking things to the extreme and on the whole, women’s shoes are more comfortable with a low heel.
