As the summer season is here, the guide finds out the right kind of shoes that provide ease and stay odourless

After bags, shoes are the most important accessories in a person's attire. It is seen that with changing lifestyles and increasing affluence, domestic demand for footwear is projected to grow at a faster rate than has been seen before.

Representative picture 

The footwear sector has matured from the level of manual footwear manufacturing methods to automated footwear manufacturing systems. Many units are equipped with in-house design studios incorporating state-of-the-art CAD systems having 3-D Shoe Design packages that are intuitive and easy to use.

Ishaan Sachdeva, director, Alberto Toressi, shares, "Your shoes are often the last thing you wear but one of the first things people notice about you. They speak volumes about what kind of style statement you prefer making.

They also reflect your personality and when worn aptly, further elevate it by a few notches." He adds that square-toe shoes help give that professional edge to men. One must make sure the shoes exude a sophisticated and sleek finish.

Designer Shruti Kaul Sachdeva who owns Trishuli Shoes, says, "Your complete body weight is on the shoes so one must give importance to the right shoe that he/she wears."

While talking about shoes for summer Sachdeva added that the sole of the shoe must be able to breathe properly so that one feels less heat on the foot. Lighter fabric shoes should be worn in the summer months like cotton. It is important that one goes in for the shoes that are comfortable while walking.

Shoes as per experts are the only fashion accessory that have both a physiological and a psychological impact. Not only do they affect your physical comfort and well-being and uplift your mood but they also go a long way in creating a good first impression and nailing your fashion quotient.

Boot it right

Men who are short in height should avoid wearing pointed shoes, though they can also carry off high heeled boots with aplomb.

Tall men should opt for boots with less heels or a flat sole. People who are on the heavier side should wear shoes that are broad and have a strong sole.
