Suede is split-leather, meaning it is cut from the thickness of the leather and does not include the top layer of the animal’s skin. Because of this, it is not quite as durable as full-grain leather, but it is still strong. Suede is plush and beautiful, making it very captivating and easy on the eye. Suede is a wonderful choice when you’re going for aesthetics or style. You will need to be sure to invest in some suede shoe care products to keep your suede nice. It is very easily stained or ruined by rain/snow/salt.
Leather is a great choice if you’re going for a more sleek, professional look. It is also more durable than suede, therefore will last longer. It is not so easily ruined. It can handle more abrasion and weather than suede can. You will still want to invest in leather protection products if you care to extend the life of your pumps.
Lastly, there is one snakeskin option available. If you’re looking for heels that will give you sass, spunk, attitude, luxurious aesthetics, and a sense of heightened sexuality, snakeskin is for you. Women often opt for snakeskin when they want to have a night on the town.
Cons of wearing high heels: Heels that are two inches or higher actually propel the body forward. This makes walking awkward. The also point the foot downward, thus reducing its ability to flex and absorb shock. Your knees and hips then have to pick up the slack, which can aggravate or even sometimes cause arthritis.
Pros of wearing high heels: Heels give your calf muscles more shape, elongate the look of your legs (making you appear longer and leaner), improve your pelvic floor muscles (heels place pelvic muscles in the perfect position to contract and strengthen), and cause a boost of confidence.
When it comes to choosing heels for yourself, you really need to think about your personal wants and needs. What are your feet used to? What kind of statement are you looking to make? Do you have foot trouble? If you decide that a 3 ¼ inch heel is right for you, these pumps are a wonderful choice.
Aqua (Suede) is a breath-taking sea-colored blue/green that can be the perfect accent color to your outfit. Aqua is super versatile and can be paired with a wide variety of colors. You can choose to keep your look soft and feminine and go with pastel shades of pink, lilac, yellow, or peach; or create a bold look with attitude by pairing it with black, gold, green, navy, or plum.
Blush (Leather) is a very soft, pastel baby pink. The sleek leather makes it look even more soft. You can try pairing blush with navy, chocolate, olive, charcoal, black, burgundy, teal, emerald, and more. They all would help balance out the muted and washy qualities of the blush color.
Coral (Suede) is a salmon pink with an orangish red tint to it. It is a gorgeous color. One of the most stunning color combinations with coral is teal and grey. Mix the perfect shades of each and nothing can beat it. Coral, navy blue, and yellow also make a great mixture. Coral with green or gold makes a subtly loud impression.
Sunkist Yellow (Leather) is a yellow that is slightly on the mustard color side, but not so much that it isn’t still a pretty shade of yellow. This shade of yellow pairs well with black, violet, brown, berry tones, and blues. Try adding a couple shades of yellow and a dash of white throughout your outfit to have a balanced palette.
Lastly, there is the snakeskin option. If you’re choosing snakeskin high heels, you’re obviously going for the wow-factor. Why not keep it going and make your outfit contrast dramatically with the heels? Wear bright colors to compliment and contrast with the black and white of the snakeskin.
