Hi Imogen, I have quite small feet for my height and substantial (figure8?) build, therefore my feet always appear disproportionately tiny, and like I might topple over like a weeble. Can you give any tips for this dilemma (I’m not a huge fan of high heels, though mid-height are fine, I like comfyish shoes and I think ‘flatforms’ could help). One of my best shoe choices was a 1″ gladiator, with criss-cross straps, plaited leather, gold beads, etc on them, ie lots of adornment – but that’s not always easy to find. I’ve tried looking online for solutions, but most of the information seems to be centred on how to make feet look smaller, which is one body/style issue I really don’t have to add onto my list 🙂
If your feet are smaller than most, then you may find yourself wanting ways to make your feet look more proportional to the rest of your body. While making your foot physically larger is impossible to do, there are plenty of easy things you can do to make your feet appear longer….
