Five Timelessly Sexy Shoes for Women

If you’re planning an outfit for a really special date, don’t overlook shoes. Yes, a body-hugging dress will work hard for some heavy pulling. Long, tousled hair will give you Julia Roberts charms. But at the end of the day, remember, shoes seal the look. We all think loafers are warm and comfy, but they’ll ruin the entire aesthetic.

Shopping for the perfect shoes to give your getup the perfect lift? Here are five of your best picks:


In the kingdom of sexy shoes, stilettos reign queen. Their ultra-thin heels can make walking laborious, but you can’t deny the power they give any woman who wears them. Now the first stilettos are said to have been made in the 1950’s, but today, they have become a staple in every woman’s wardrobe!


You’d instantly know espadrilles by the two long laces they have at the opening. But you don’t actually knot them up as though they were sneakers; instead, you make them go to the back above your calf before you tie them. How the shoes draw the eye up the leg is the whole point and is actually what makes them sexy. Best thing here is, they work both for daytime and nighttime.


Platforms were popularized by the Spice Girls, but that doesn’t mean it should be all about them. True enough, a stacked heel can be just as sexy look as your favorite stilettos. But there’s, of course, one big difference: platforms are easier to balance your weight on with each step you take. Stilettos give your feet no choice but to arch really sharply, and that is why they can hurt sometimes. Platforms will give you height but without the pain or discomfort.

Heeled Sneakers

Heeled sneakers are like stilettos and platforms in that they add to your height, but they offer a plus: leg muscle definition. On top of that, they give you increased mobility and more stable foot support. This kind of shoe is just right for those casual bar or basketball game dates.


Finally, a high heeled sandal allows you to show off a bit of extra skin. And that is sexy by itself (with good pedicure, of course). There’s something about a sandal heel and red nail polish on your toes.

Definitely, any of these shoes is enough to make your date ask for moreof you. But remember that the ultimate reason for sexy remains your self-confidence.
