How to Choose Cool and Comfortable Shoes for Pregnant Women

Flat shoes -- flat shoes are nice as you can move faster and at ease plus it gives you the feel of easiness and you can move as freely as you want specially when you are out and about and anywhere you go. There are available flat shoes like ballet shoes, open or close as well.

Specifically I like the the shoes like the ballet flat shoes those with a very thin heel or the appearance of no heel at all. Usually ballet shoes -- "usually features a ribbon-like binding around the low tops of the slipper and may have a slight gathering at the top-front of the vamp (toe box) and a tiny, decorative string tie. Ballet slippers can be adjusted and tightened to the wearer's foot by means of this string tie".

How to Choose Cool and Comfortable Shoes for Pregnant Women

You can still choose shoes which are cool and comfortable. When choosing shoes when you are pregnant remember these things :

  • Comfortability --- the feeling of being "at ease"
  • should have allowance as the feet of a pregnant women may expand due to water and sodium
  • shoes which allows you to move fast
  • limits the danger of tripping and falling over

Some ways on how to take care of your feet when you are pregnant :

  • avoid standing for long hours
  • Put your feet up or elevate them every time you have a chance as this limits the possibility of varicose veins. This is also good for the circulation of the blood in the feet
  • You can buy a foot scrub or oil massage for soothing purposes
  • Foot spa creams can be bought anywhere at general store or pharmaceutical stores
  • Keep your feet cool and dry always that is why sandals are good for pregnant women. Usually, people wear "sandals in warmer climates or during warmer parts of the year in order to keep their feet cool and dry".
  • An open shoes are advisable to avoid athletes foot specially if your feet sweat a lot.

SANDALS

 

  • Sandals are also good for pregnant women, they look cool and comfortable. Wearing sandals depends on the weather. Usually sandals consists of a "sole held to the wearer's foot by straps or thongs passing over the instep and around the ankle". The feet is exposed with sandals. Some women prefer sandals because of its easiness and comfort in warm weather or just a fashion style.
  • Yoga sandals are good and comfortable as well. Some women do yoga as a form of exercise when they are pregnant, but even if you are not pregnant they look cool.
  • People may choose to wear sandals for several reasons, among them economy and comfort in warm weather.

Flip Flops

Flip flops

  • Flip flops are a simple type of footwear in with there is a band between the big toe and the other toes. These are cool shoes and this also depends on the weather. I wear flip flops even though i am not pregnant and it gives me some kind of freedom in my feet.

Clogs

Clog shoes

  • Clog shoes are usually closed toed shoe with a heel not more than a couple of inches high but the heels are thick and are backless.

Evening shoes -- the heel would be wide, avoid the steep ones. At least one evening shoes with a one half inch heel is recommended for pregnant women. Sometimes we want to look sexy with more steeper and high heeled shoes but there is the danger of tripping over. You don't have to attend parties always, so one evening shoes is enough.

Mules

Mules

  • Mules look like a clog but they can be open at the back, some are classy and have high heeled while some are flat. Mules and clogs are almost the same

Accoding to wikipedia "the primary difference between mules and clogs in early days was that clogs were likely to be worn by working people, and mules were fancier and favored by the aristocracy. Mules become more associated as common dresswear among prostitutes".

Those yoga sandals and clogs make so much sense. When I was in Asia I was told that the Chinese believe the feet are the second heart - made so much sense to me - so yes, let's take good care of our feet while pregnant. And the clogs are so good for support during this weight gain.

What a clever hub - something we often don't think about with pregnancy! Many thanks! And rated up of course (and more).

Like Carolina, I won't need them for the reason stated, but feet need for comfort is never outlived. Some of the models you've suggested are very good choices for me. I wish I could stand thongs, but they drive me nuts and hurt after the first couple of steps - if I get that far. And nowadays, there are such cute ones, too. I bought a pair last summer (after trying on numerous pair to find the best comfort for my skinny sensitivie toes) but I only had them on a time or two and then not for long.

But there are some wonderful suggestions here! Thank you!

By the way, if high heels have deep thick platforms and not too high a heel, they can be pretty comfortable and don't mess with balance and leg muscles too much.

If I were a pregnant woman, this hub would be invaluable to me. You are performing a public service, Maita.

Your display of the various options in this type of shoes is very attractive.

Nice idea for a comfortable shoe . This is very important area for pregnancy. Carrying more weight during that period. If your feet aren't healthy it is hard for the rest of your body too.

Great work on this Hub

Thank you

Cool choices of shoes for pregnant women. Didn't know that mules are common dresswear for prostitutes. Talking about that, actually a nice elderly Filipino lady gave me a beautiful pair of mules with beads and embroidery -- now, I would like to think that befits aristocracy rather than the other kind. Nicely done.

Shoes are going to be very important no doubt the fee would increase in size to cope with the extra weight of preganancy as they do when you put on weight generally...

Shoes are very important in pregnancy. When I was pregnant I wore only sports shoes and flat boots. I totally stopped wearing classic high-heel shoes. Otherwise, I would suffer from a back pain and be unable to walk.:o))

Very informative hub!
