payless-for-high-heels-and-sports-shoesShoes are the most integral part of attire. Gentlemen through generations have been taught to take care of the shine of their shaves and shoes. Women know the importance of a good shoe not only in terms of beauty but comfort also. When shopping for shoes, we usually consider three things: style, price and comfort. Unfortunately we all tend to compromise on comfort if we get a nice looking shoe for a good price. When it comes to shoes, don’t buy expensive highly fashionable ones for mere style. Buy wisely, pay less and go for comfort rather than fashion. Here are some health hazards of ill-fitting shoes.

High Heels:

Victoria Bekham said “Flat heels make your whole personality flat.” And many women would agree to that. Sadly women wearing high heels regularly pay a heavy price for their high style quotient. According to health experts, high heels damage the body in more than one ways. When the heel of the foot is raised, the center of gravity shifts from the base of the spine. You have to move your upper body forward to keep the balance and that puts your spine in an unnatural position. Not only that but high heels also put an extra pressure on the balls of feet. Prolonged pressure damages the foot in the long run due to which knees and the lower back get affected. The shins also suffer because of high heels. The muscles in the lower calf are flexible. When you wear high heels every day, these muscles shrink and after sometime it is difficult to stretch them back to their original position.

Narrow Toes:

Trying to fit your foot into those pretty, narrow toed shoes can cost your foot its beauty and sometimes function too. The front of the foot is curled in an unpleasant position and the base joint of the big toe is either pushed up or grows outwards in a painful bony growth. This not only gives the foot an unsightly appearance but also a lot of pain. Narrow toes of shoes are also responsible for those painful corns and ingrown nails we all want to avoid at all costs.

Ill Fitting:

Ill fitted shoes are responsible for many ailments of the foot. When we wear ill fitted shoes with straps at the ankle, the tight backs of the shoes not only peel the skin from the back of the ankle but also cause a bony growth in the heel. Ill fitted shoe cause a thickening of the nerves in the sole of the feet that may make waking painful and cause the numbness of the foot.

Fortunately there are many reliable brands that are making life easier for style conscious women. Shoes are made with snug arch pads to give you greater comfort and fitting. Block heels are designed to put equally distributed pressure on your spine and knee while giving those extra inches. The best part is, you don’t have to pay an exorbitant price for this comfort. Shop for shoes wisely and you actually pay less and get the best shoes that are equally stylish and easy on your foot.

Which is the Ideal Price Comparison Site?



A price comparison site is a shopping portal that lists the products and services of merchants and service providers along with their prices. The buyer logs onto the site and views whatever he is interested in purchasing and makes an informed decision. With the increase in the practice of online shopping, there are more than many price comparison sites now operating in the market. Is there a comparison of comparison sites themselves? How can one determine whether the site one has chosen can be beneficial at all? How can one fine the ideal price comparison site? The answer to that is quite simple. Just remember the following rules and you will find the best site there is.

Variety of brands:

The site must have a size of at least hundreds of brands and stores. You don’t want to be stuck with a limited choice only to find out that the product you have bought is available in many other brands differing in price or quality. Even while in the shopping mall, you want to choose from a variety of brands. The purpose of comparison sites is to open the world of merchandise in front of you; so that is the first thing you should notice there. The more the merrier is true to the hilt in this case.

Connecting the buyer with the seller:

Most of the sites charge the buyer for advertising their products on their pages and for every click their product receives from a potential buyer. The downside to this is that the buyer then has to visit the official website of the merchant or brand and close the deal there. The ideal price comparison site connects the buyer and seller on the spot on their own site and only charges a commission when the deal is made. This becomes a less expensive process for the seller and in turn for the buyer. The advantage is not only the saving of money and time but also the surety of the double minded buyer who likes to compare prices again before he makes a final purchase.

Deal alerts:

Once you have found a reasonable price comparison site, you must go through what is it offering once you become a member of it. Many sites promise the deal alerts. This can be done in many ways. Sometimes you have to visit the site regularly to find out the lowered prices in sales and deals. But ideally the alerts should be sent to you vial sms and email. Market rates fluctuate in many ways and you should be on the beneficent end by immediately knowing about it.
