Three types of shoes for ladies in our eshop

Whether you want to feel feminine, dazzle a prince at the ball, you are going out for an event, or want to keep it classy while walking around town or in the office, we have shoes for you in various designs and colours. Read about three types of shoes you can find in our eshop: Ballet flats, pump shoes, and cork orthopedic PROTETIKA slip on sandals.

Ballet flats

Ballet flats are especially popular for women and girls of all ages, being worn as a fashion trend and as a more comfortable alternative to high heels with everything from casual wear to formal wear - jeans, shorts, skirt, dresses, shortalls, and leggings.
With our PROTETIKA ballet flats or ballerinas as they are sometimes called, you'll be one step closer to living out your Swan Lake fantasies. Beloved for their chic style, ballet flats make the ideal companion to any look. Classic black colour is always a failsafe choice. Ballerinas are always elegant in the classic sense. Regardless of your aesthetic, we are certain that our black ballet flats will earn you lots of compliments wherever you go. Their timeless design is perfect for everyday life. If you want to embrace a more playful look, they are fashionable and can be easily worn to coffee mornings with other mums, BBQ dinner with friends, or so popular Saturday brunches.

Businesswomen will appreciate the comfort for their feet in a long day at the office. Our ballet flats start at EU 36, which was my daughter’s size at the age of 9, and she had them as school uniform shoes. They are nicely flexible, and their padded footbed is not too thin that you would feel every unevenness of the school floor.
High-quality leather on the outside, leather innersole and mesh inside make these women's shoes extremely durable. Flats dominated the streets this season and have conquered the heart of the fashion world.

Heel Pumps

Referring to shoes as “pumps” dates back to the 1500s, when men and servants wore shoes without heels known as “pompes.” From there, the pompes evolved from the plain, flat shoes worn by men to embellished, heeled shoes worn by women.

A court shoe (British English), or pump (American English), is a shoe with a low-cut front, or vamp, with either a shoe buckle or a black bow as ostensible fastening. Deriving from the 17th and 18th century dress shoes with shoe buckles, the vamped pump shape emerged in the late 18th century. 

Which types of heels are most comfortable? Kitten heels, wedge heels, and those with a chunky heel or block heel are thought to be the most supportive and therefore the most comfortable. If comfort is key, avoid shoes with a thinner and higher heel in favor of those that are easier to walk in.

Workplaces that have a more casual dress code might allow for you to wear peep-toe shoes. Open-toe shoes are usually not appropriate for most offices.

The beauty of court shoes is their variety; they can be worn to complement both formal and smart casual outfits and look particularly stunning when worn with formal dresses and pencil skirts.

Black, beige, and grey shoes go with anything. Since they are all neutrals, you can wear these colors to offset a more vibrant outfit. Of course, with these neutrals, you can either mix and match or keep them in a similar tonal family. In our eshop you can choose from beige, nude, blue and black models of pump shoes.

Did you know that researchers completed biomechanical analyses and found that high heels give women a more feminine gait? The raised heel makes the women's stride shorter and increases the rotation and tilt of the women's hips.

Pumps are not too flashy, not too understated — the perfect dress shoe for business or any dressy, yet not-so-formal occasion. High heeled or low heeled, pumps are considered the more casual and comfortable choice in dress shoes.

There are many types of high heels available in the market and pumps are one of the high heels varieties of shoes. The reason they are called pumps is because they are closed toe shoes. The shoe goes upwards on sides of the foot and is usually without buckles.

The average heel height is around 3 inches, or 7.5cm. This falls into the mid-height range, which usually measures in at 2-3 inches, or 5-7.5cm. Our PROTETIKA heel height is between 4 and 5 cm. This is the most classic heel height, and mid-height heels should be comfortable enough to wear all day.

Slip-on sandal slides

After you have impressed your prince, and you are living your happy life, running a few errands here and there, dropping and picking little people, you will find out that cork orthopedic sandals are something to look to. They have evolved from those heavy types which told your neighbours you were home, the minute you put them on. They are now leightweight and full of colours, and are definitely a very stylish shoe for your out and about.

PROTETIKA certified orthopedic footwear come equipped with an orthopedic insole that offers both stability and cushioning for your feet. As a result, these shoes can avert problems such as calluses, bunions, ingrown toenails, and foot pain. PROTETIKA orthotic cork sandals also help to reduce the excess pressure on specific parts of the foot. 

They provide good shock absorption and arch support.

If you take good care of your shoes you can wear your PROTETIKA for many months and they will look nice. Just make sure you're cleaning them off when they get dirty, and avoid leaving them outside in extreme heat. 

The cork footbed allows your feet to feel cushioned with firm arch support while walking, making them comfortable for long periods of time when exploring cities or wandering the countryside. 

Appearances notwithstanding, PROTETIKA orthopedic makes a very comfortable shoe. They are anatomically correct, orthopedic footwear that makes people feel good, just like our name Feel Good Shoes LLC promises.
