Pointed shoes are sometimes pointless

As you may know, the current trend for men’s leather shoes is pointed. A week ago, I was looking around shoe stores to buy myself a new pair. All the brands were there offering their own style of pointed shoes. But guess what? I didn’t buy one primarily because of the two reasons below:

1. It’s not my thing
I realized that even if pointed shoes are in-style, I’m not comfortable wearing such a stylish pair of shoes. I don’t know but I honestly feel awkward wearing them.

2. It’s uncomfortable for me
When I tried fitting a pair of pointed shoes, it felt awful. I’m not used to wearing them especially when your toes feel like being squeezed in the narrow end of the shoe. It’s pointless to buy pointed shoes when it’s painful on your feet.

I guess, if you really would want to buy a pair of pointed shoes, get one which is semi-pointed and semi square-type so that you will feel comfortable. Good for you if you are used to wearing pointed shoes because you won’t have a problem with it. As for me, I ended up getting myself a pair of nice and comfortable boots instead.

well for me, pointed shoes are very stylish and elegant.. agree? they are not painful at all, you need not fit your toe at the narrowest part of the shoe,but you have to consider size allowance, coz their are kinda different from normal shoes.. there are 2 things you need consider when buying pointy shoes:
1. doesnt hurt the toe ( not too small)
2. stays in the foot, (not too big)

GOD bless!
