A high-instep (top part of your foot) can often cause tightness within shoes that some women confuse with the issue of having ‘wide’ feet rather than having a midfoot height that is taller than the standard foot measurement.
If you’re looking for the perfect women’s leather dress shoe, sandal or boot in Australia to suit your high instep we recommend choosing a leather shoe with adjustable straps or shoelaces to customise the fit around your instep. Choosing a lower cut style is another way to ensure there is no downward pressure across the top of your foot that can often occur in a higher cut shoes.
Our popular ‘orti’ mid-heel dress shoe is the perfect option for women with hi-step due to its adjustable strap. The classic ‘barkly’ heel with its lower cut, yet ultra-supportive upper is one of our most versatile leather shoes for women with hi-steps.
