Whilst we were in Denmark talking to a number of brands about all things Scandinavian Design, we made a visit to the headquarters of ECCO shoes. There, we happened upon a magic number: the optimum heel height for comfortable yet stylish shoes.
A number like that catches a girl’s ear. So we dug a little deeper and put together 5 tips for how to find heels you can spend the day in, walk, run and dance in without ending up with them in your hand instead of on your feet.

If you want a shoe that wraps the foot in unrepentant sexuality, that could take a man down with it’s deadly spike of a heel, then odds are it’s not the kind of shoe you can comfortably wear all day, every day. Plus, if you wore your sex-on-legs shoes all day every day, what would you do to up the ante come nights out and special occasions?
The mistake we often make is having a wardrobe of shoes that are either completely flat or climbing towards 6 inches. But don’t forget the middle space. The design team at ECCO shoes tells us the maximum heel height for comfort is 7 centimetres (about 3 inches). It’s a heel height that beats the look of flats, gives you that bit of extra heigh and engages the leg muscles just enough to slim and add tone, yet you can still get around in them with ease.
Thanks to ECCO for sharing their tips.
