- To get the impression of slimmer and longer feet.
- No vertically stitched because it will cut off the impression of your long feet.
- Choose shoes with conical pointed at front.
- Wear long dark color socks

For big and heavy legs and feet:

- Avoid wearing short socks.
- Do not wear shiny and showy shoes.
- Wear light-colored shoes matched with the clothes you are wearing.
- Wear shoes with cone shape front
- Avoid wearing side open shoes

For thin and skinny legs:

- Wear shoes with strap or ribbon to give bigger legs impression.
- Choose two-colored shoes (on each shoe, of course) to make your feet seem wider.

- Wear stripy shoes or shoes with vertical stitches.
- Do not wear dark-colored socks, pick the bright ones instead.
- To get the impression of wider and shorter legs.

Lovely, lovely shoes in the photos you chose. I liked reading the list of names of the types of shoes which you prepared for us. I can only wear comfortable shoes these days -- nothing pretty -- but I'm happy for all the women out there that can still buy pretty shoes. Good hub, prasetio30.
