Shoes for Comfort & Style: Pregnancy & Beyond

>> Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Comfort & style is something we are all looking for in shoes. Finding something that encompasses both can be a real challenge. This becomes especially true during pregnancy and motherhood in general. The need to be able to quickly slip on shoes without feeling frumpy increases with the size of your belly. 

If you are purchasing shoes online, read reviews to see how the sizing is running. Order up if your feet are swelling or you need to add comfort by way of inserts. Look for deals and shipping promotions. Target is doing a buy one get one 50% off sale on shoes! If you can't find the shoe you're looking for at your local Payless Shoe Store, but they are available online, they can actually be shipped FOR FREE to your local store!

The first shoe to embrace if you haven't already is the ballet flat. Easy to slip on during pregnancy & fast to slip on for the busy mom on the go. Snazzy flats in funky prints and bright colors, look great with a monochromatic outfit [even if you accidentally end up putting on two different pairs in your 8th month.] 
Here are a few that are simple with a little embellishment to give it that extra umph...without the high price tag:

If you don't quite feel bold enough to wear a funky print on your clothing, adding them to your feet is a fashionable way to do that!

pointed toes help to elongate the leg:

For those of you that live in areas where it will snow, ice or rain a lot these coming seasons, a boot is not just a fashion piece but practical, too. There are some ultra snazzy rain boot options at target [they are having a buy one get one 50% off right now...I always purchase when they do this sale!] Also for the rainboots, I recommend the boot liners. TIP: put the liners on before you put on the boots to prevent the sliding and slouching of the liner. They come in many colors to match your boots! 

If you're like me and you like the look of a rustic, heeled boot, it's best to stay with a low heel if you're having balance issues. It's common in pregnancy! Boots look great with anything: dresses, skirts, jeans and leggings. As with any shoe, but especially with heeled shoes, make sure the traction on the bottom is enough to keep you from slipping. These boots qualify:

Another boot choice would be an ankle boot. These from cutesygirl.com, fit the comfort bill! They come in four different colors also.

And finally if you just want something that's super duper comfy and keeps you toasty, but has a fashionable factor, this one comes with rave reviews for just that:

Hope you find some foot comfort during your pregnancy and beyond!

I wore Crocs most of my pregnancy - they really have come out with some cute styles, such as the Malindi. http://www.crocs.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-crocs_us-Site/default/Search-Show?q=malindi

They are super comfy, and they have some stretch to accomodate your growing feet! In fact, I didn't realize until 2 months postpartum that my feet had grown since I was still wearing my croc slingbacks! Absolutely loved those shoes!!
