Boats - Chic Shoes for Real Ladies

A woman does not have a lot of shoes, so another pair will not be superfluous. And what can you buy a beautiful girl? Of course, not out of fashion elegant shoes-boats. But how to choose them and what to wear?

A bit of history

Today such shoes are in the wardrobe of almost every fashionista. And no one thinks about what the story of their appearance. And there were such shoes, oddly enough, from men's shoes.


These were the simplest shoes without heels and zippers, which were worn by court courtiers back in the 15th century. Then such shoes were called "pomps". Today they are almost the same, but a slightly modified name, they are called "pumps".

Then a small heel was added to the shoes, which was constantly breaking down, which was why a metal rod was placed in it (this technology has been used to this day).

Around the middle of the XIX century, these shoes became mandatory for Englishwomen who worked in court or attended this establishment.By the way, in some countries the phrase “court shoes” is still used in relation to these shoes, which is translated as “court shoes”. Then the main material for the manufacture were fabrics.


Then, in the last XX century, leather became popular, and this directly affected fashion, and shoes became leather. Their forms also changed. The fashion designer Roger Vivier, known at the time, added a hairpin and lengthened his nose, and still later Salvatore Ferragamo raised the heel to literally transcendental heights, resulting in a height of 10 centimeters. Such shoes, by the way, were worn by the famous Marelin Monroe.

In the 60s of the last century, designers made the heel thicker and more stable, and even later, the famous Coco Chanel introduced fashion to noses that were darker in color than the rest of the shoe. To this day, such shoes remain in demand and very popular among women.


How to choose?

How to choose shoes-boats? What should I look for when choosing?

  • First of all, pay attention to the materials from which the shoes are made. The best option is genuine leather or suede. Such shoes, firstly, “breathe” and are comfortable for the legs, and secondly, they will last a long time. But you can also choose shoes made of cloth, but it must be of high quality and dense.
  • Heel height is extremely important.It all depends on you. If a high hairpin scares you, then give it up, because there is nothing more ridiculous than a girl in chic shoes that can not move on such high heels. Try to wear shoes with a steady heel, in which the center of gravity is distributed more evenly. Reduce the height of the heel, from this you will not look less attractive.
  • Pay attention to the nose shoes. The classic ones have a pointed and oblong nose, and this model will be ideally combined with strict and official dresses or evening gorgeous dresses. In such shoes your legs will appear longer and slender. But a rounded nose is more romantic and casual. By the way, this option is convenient, since this form is similar to the shape of the fingers, so they will not be squeezed.
  • If you want to reduce the volume of the legs, then use a simple technique: the deeper the cutout of shoes, the more slender your legs will seem. But do not overdo it, otherwise in the shoes you simply can not walk.
  • Do you want to look a little taller? Choose high-heeled shoes.But remember that lifting the foot too sharply is extremely uncomfortable and harmful. But in this case, you can save a small platform, which will make the transition from nose to heel smoother.
  • Do not forget about fitting. In the store, be sure to wear both shoes, shoes, walk, enjoy the convenience. If you are uncomfortable, refuse to purchase. Stand in the shoes. If at the same time you are forced to lean forward or can not keep balance, then you are unlikely to be comfortable in such shoes.
