Comfortable Yet Stylish Shoes For Creative Minds

Artists spend a lot of time on their feet. Whether they’re creating their next masterpiece or shopping their portfolios to gallery owners and investors, artists are constantly in an upright position. When you spend eight to ten hours standing and walking every day, it’s not long before you start to experience aches, pains, and overall discomfort. Ultimately, investing in the proper footwear can make a big difference. 

Is it possible to find comfortable shoes that allow you to showcase your creativity and style while completing masterpieces and marketing yourself? Believe it or not, it is. Check out this list of comfortable yet stylish shoes perfect for wearing to work or when you’re in the creative zone. 

Sneakers

Sneakers used to be thought of as nothing more than shoes you put on when you’re performing sports or working out. However, that concept has since changed. Shoe designers have put a significant amount of creativity and thought into making sneakers a more practical and popular option. In fact, they’ve enlisted the collaboration of local and notable artists to add diversity.

Sneakers are made from durable materials and come in a wide variety of styles and color waves to compliment your personality. You can throw on a flat canvas sneaker with funky designs or a trendy mid-top white leather sneaker for extra comfort and support. Sneakers can also be worn to run errands, work on your feet all day, or in the boardroom.

Flats

Flats or ballet shoes are perfect for female artists that take pride in their sense of style. They have just the right amount of arch support and padding to make them comfortable to wear all day. Flats are also very versatile and can be ideal for everything from working on your sculpture to talking to potential buyers at art shows. They come in an array of colors, patterns, and styles to pair with your equally creative wardrobe. 

Crocs

You may have thought of crocs as a fashion trend that would fade with time, but it’s here to stay. Crocs are some of the most comfortable shoes for people that spend most of the day on their feet. They’re a type of flat shoe, which makes them ideal for walking. Crocs are also waterproof. The strategically placed holes are designed for proper air circulation to keep your feet from getting sweaty. If nurses and doctors wear crocs (a profession that requires a lot of standing), you can rest assured that they’re perfect for artists. 

Shopping For Comfortable Shoes

These are just a few options for artists looking for stylish yet comfortable shoes. There are plenty of brands and styles on the market to consider. As you shop for shoes, there are a few things to keep in mind. 

  • Size – There’s nothing worse than wearing a shoe that doesn’t fit. You either end up with throbbing pain from your foot being squeezed or from overusing your muscles to keep the shoe from falling off. So, ensure that you select the appropriate shoe size for maximized comfort. 
  • Arch And Ankle Support – When you’re standing, walking, or running all day, you need arch and ankle support to avoid aches and injuries. As you shop for comfortable shoes, read the description and reviews to see what type of support the shoe offers. The idea is to purchase footwear that has efficient padding and durable materials to protect your ankles. 
  • Durability – Wearing a flimsy shoe is distracting. Before long, it’s falling apart, slowing down your creative process and mobility. Therefore, artists are encouraged to purchase shoes made from quality materials that can withstand various conditions. 

A day in the life of an artist is likely more than most people realize. A successful artist must not only continue to come up with innovative ways to express their creativity, but they also spend hours bringing it to life and marketing it to the public. It all equates to multiple hours on your feet. Luckily, there are plenty of footwear options to increase your comfort, improve productivity, and reflect your style.
