Best Shoes For Standing All Day?
What Makes Sole Bliss The Best?
Comfy shoes are an essential part of everyone’s wardrobe, and when you are working a tiresome shift or teaching long classes all day, or anything that requires you to be on your feet all day or night, it is important to know which shoes are the best for comfort, and why they need to be well-fitted.
Functionality, comfort and fashion are not often associated together, but in our Sole Bliss shoes, you get the upmost comfort and style, and versatile options which you can wear for hours on end, from day to night.
Cons of Wearing Ill-Fitted Shoes
The shoes you wear everyday have such a big impact in your life, although you may never think about. It is incredibly important to wear comfortable shoes for standing all day, as wearing ill-fitting shoes can affect your natural movement and growth of your feet. They can also cause common foot problems like Hammer Toes and Bunions.
Hammer Toes is a condition that affects the joints in your second, third, fourth, and fifth toes. This condition causes the joints to bend abnormally, so your toes might curl up rather than lay flat on the ground. To give your toes the space they need, you need to wear comfortable shoes with a wide toe box. This means that narrow or pointy shoes can make hammer toes even more uncomfortable.
Shoes are made to protect your feet from a lot of things like cuts and extreme temperatures, but unfortunately, wearing ill-fitting shoes can also do a lot more harm. Wearing shoes that are too tight across the width, or shoes that are a size too small, will often leave you with blisters, corns and calluses.
If your shoes are too tight around your toes, this can sometimes create Ingrown Toenails, which is where your toenail grows into the skin around your nail bed. This causes inflammation, swelling and tenderness. To avoid Ingrown Toenails, make sure you are trimming your nails regularly and wearing shoes that allow room at the front of the toe box. This is particularly important if you are standing all day.
Not wearing the correct type of shoes for your feet can often lead to symptoms including pain, fatigue and strain. Not only this, but wearing ill-fitting shoes, for example sizes too small, high pointed-toe heels, or shoes that have very narrow widths, can often change your natural foot shape over time, and cause problems like Bunions and Hammer Toes.

Best Arch Support Shoes For Standing All Day?
What Makes Sole Bliss The Best?
If you are looking for comfortable shoes for standing all day, it is essential that they have arch support. Given that your arches have fallen or are low to the ground, you need to wear flat feet shoes which are designed to cushion and support them. An anatomical arch support will counter over-pronation, which stabilises the foot and prevents the worsening of flat feet.
Women with flat feet tend to need a wide-fit shoe. We recommend looking for wide flat feet shoes where the toe-box is spacious in order to prevent cramping your toes. Sole Bliss shoes are ideal for flat feet as they all offer a deep and wide toe box which can accommodate flat and wide feet.
Look for a well-defined heel cup to keep your foot secure, and opt for shoes that are somewhat flexible to accommodate natural foot movements. By prioritising these features, you can find the perfect footwear to alleviate the challenges posed by flat feet and keep your feet happy and healthy.

How To Know If Shoes Are Made Well For Long-Wear
If you are looking for comfortable shoes to stand in all day, you will want to know how to tell if these shoes are made well for long-wear. Finding the best quality shoes and knowing what features to look out for is sometimes difficult to see. Luckily, we have a few tricks and tips that we can share, so you know what to look out for on your next time you are looking to buy shoes; particularly shoes for wearing all day.
When inspecting the seams of the shoe, where the sole is bound to the upper, we like to see a clear smooth, seamless finish, with no extra glue or stitching poking out. This is to ensure that the sole and upper will not likely separate over time.
Looking at the stitching, the threads should be coated with a wax, which prevents fraying. To check if the stitching is protected with the wax coating, run your nail across the stitch to see if the threads come apart easily or not. Usually, you can feel if they are coated or not. The stitching should be straight and tight with no gaps between the stitches. This is incredibly important for all types of shoes as it prevents water damage.
Leather shoes can always show very obvious indicators that they are not good quality. You can see this by comparing both shoes of the same pair, and seeing if the leather is a consistent match. Using leather from different sources can often have a different consistency and texture, which means over time they will start to wear unevenly, and will often become quite obvious very quickly.
Colouring or tanning the leather is sometimes done using cheap and low-quality manufacturing which will often lead to fading and peeling. When looking at a pair of shoes made with coloured leather, you can try a small test scratch on a bit of the leather. This will indicate if the leather has been well tanned, as it should show the colour all the way through without it looking faded.
All Sole Bliss shoes are made from the highest-quality, ethically-sourced Italian and Spanish leathers. Every pair is handcrafted by our skilled artisans in Italy and Spain who are experts in long-lasting, comfortable shoes which can be worn all day and night.
All feet are different, so when it comes to finding the right pair of shoes for you, it can sometimes be hard to find the most comfortable and supportive shoes.
Following the fit of the shoes, it is also important to know that our foot size and shape can change over time. So, we recommend getting your feet measured on occasion. As most people have one foot bigger than the other, it is important to get your correct shoe size to fit the biggest foot. In addition to this, we also recommend getting your feet measured at the end of the day, if possible, as this is when your feet are at their warmest and largest.
When trying shoes, you also need to make sure that they are not pinching around the width. The widest part of your foot is where the ball of your foot is, just before your toes start.
