Why do we wear shoes? 

Females would answer – Fashion & Style
While men would answer – comfort. 
Yes they are obvious and true reasons. But the main reason why shoes were ever invented was to protect the feet. No doubt, fashion had become primarily concern for us when we think about shoes but the comfort and safety of our feet can not be hidden. 

I have done a little research on shoes and would like to share the same with you. We all know that shoes is to cover our feet but a shoe has different parts which makes the shoe complete.

1. Sole

Sole is the bottom of the shoe and it’s function is to protect the bottom of the foot.

2. Heel

The bottom rear part of the shoe is called heel. The heel’s function is to support the heel of the foot. 

3. Outsole

The outsole is a layer in direct contact with the ground. The outsole may comprise of single piece or different pieces of different material.

4. Midsole

The layer in between the outsole and insole is there for shock absorption. Different types of midsole are used for different kind of shoes and by different brands.

5. Upper

The upper part of the shoe helps hold the shoe onto the foot.

6. Shoes Accessories
There are different accessories of a shoe like Overshoes, Shoe bag, Shoe stretcher, Shoelaces, Shoe polishing equipment and shoe tree.

All these parts of shoes vary in material and setting keeping the style intact. Good brand make sure that they use good quality material for comfort without compromising on fashion.

Next time when you go to buy shoes make sure you know what will give you comfort and what should be it’s worth.
