The Style Guide for Comfortable Heels 2019

The Style Guide for Comfortable Heels 2019

7th Aug 2019

Most of us LOVE heels...

They make us feel feminine, glamorous and can instantly upgrade a stylish outfit (not to mention their special power of elongating our legs!). But sometimes, high heels can be too painful to bear and quite frankly, aren’t worth the discomfort. Especially if you’re a woman who suffers from foot problems such as bunions, wide feet, flat feet or plantar fasciitis.

There is a solution. And it’s called Sole Bliss. We create beautiful heels for women with bunions, wide feet and various other foot conditions for every occasion. Inside Sole Bliss shoes, you’ll find special comfort components to ensure you feet feel cushioned and supported all day. This includes a wide toe box, arch support and underfoot comfort. 

And we know that women like various styles, colours and heel heights for different occasions, which is why we spent 5 years of research and development to create a collection of the most comfortable heels.

We’ve rounded up some of our  most comfortable heels for bunions and wide feet that will provide long-lasting comfort and endless style

Here’s our top 8 comfortable heels for every occasion: 

Georgia Black Suede | Delicate & Glamourous | Comfortable Wedding Shoes for Bunions

Beautiful black high heels for women with bunions

Beautiful high heels needn’t be uncomfortable, and you shouldn’t have to endure foot pain throughout special occasions.

The first peep-toe for people who suffer from bunions in our collection, ‘Georgia’ is the ultimate style to give any outfit a feminine touch whilst supporting your feet.

Available in three versatile colours, blush, pale grey and black suede, ‘Georgia’ has three distinct layers of cushioning under foot, super soft suede to comfort and an adjustable back strap for a secure fit.
