How to pick the perfect Competition Heels
At GlamFit Bikinis we have a lot of experience with posing and competing in competition Heels. You need a pair that make you feel comfortable but also show off your personal style and perhaps catch the judges attention.
You may be wondering if it is possible to feel comfortable yet look amazing in pair of heels? well the answer is YES! we have selected only the highest quality shoes for our competition heels collection. The designs have been tried and tested by many competitors meaning the choice is so much easier for you.
If your main concern is comfort consider a platform. Styles with a platform under the toe area tend to be more comfortable as they minimize the angle and pressure on the ball of the foot. Platforms, even thin ones, also maintain stability by keeping the soles flat which makes it easier to walk and switch positions while posing.
High quality competition Heels have correctly designed arches that are well balanced and match the natural shape of your feet making the difference between pain and all-day comfort. Improperly designed shoe arches rise in a straight ramp from just behind the balls of the feet to the backs of the heels. These do not support the arches of the feet and cause the feet to slide forward in the shoes. In this scenario, the majority of your weight is on the ball of your foot and your toes.
- If you feel like you are walking on your tip toes, the arch of the shoe may be too high.
- Better shoe arches rise in a curve to support the arches of the feet, and level off a bit so that the heels of the feet are not resting on so steep an incline.
- The very best shoe arches rise high to provide total arch support for the feet, and then drop down into shallow cup-like depressions that hold and support the heels of the feet. This profile shifts body weight from the balls of the feet back to the heels where it belongs, and helps prevent the feet from sliding forward.
Besides comfort you can also choose between a simple and timeless design or going for something a little extra with our blingy options. the bling level ranges from a light scatter of crystals to fully encrusted heel and platform (our personal favourite)
Most importantly you must do your homework and find out your federations rules in regards to shoe style, each federation has their own regulations.
