Prada; the epitome of Italian luxury fashion. Every girl has dreamed of owning a Prada handbag or a pair of Prada shoes. These items do not come easily to everybody, due to their high selling price. Is Prada worth it? Are Prada heels comfortable?
Prada heels are considered some of the best quality and comfiest shoes from high end luxury fashion retailers. Even though they can be quite expensive in terms of pricing, they are known to be worth their value. Shoes, especially high heels, must fit comfortably or they can become a nightmare.
More expensive, higher quality shoes, should be more comfortable than cheaper alternatives. There is a science behind the fit of a shoe, which many people are not aware of.
Prada heels are some of the most adored shoes within the fashion industry. Not only because of their quality, but because they are Prada. Prada has become iconic over the years for a number of reasons, and has grown into one of the most recognizable fashion brands across the world.
Prada is known for providing the quality that the high prices demand. Apart from value, all Prada products, including heels, serve a psychological need within society. Prada represents an identity. The identity of someone who can afford Prada elevates that individual into someone who is sophisticated, classic, and elegant. It provides a sense of exclusivity, even though in reality, Prada heels are not exclusive items, since so many people own a pair.
According to user reviews, Prada heels tend to fall in the middle in terms of comfort for many. Many users have spoken out about the comfort of Miu Miu shoes, the fully owned subsidiary of Prada. Others stated that their comfort shoe is Jimmy Choo. Christian Dior and Saint Laurent are considered to be in the middle of the scale as well, while Christian Louboutin is considered the brand with the prettiest, yet most uncomfortable shoes.
In terms of comfort, Prada shoes are highly rated among many because of the craftsmanship. The insoles are made of leather which offer a cushion and better support for the shoe as opposed to man made alternatives. The comfort of the shoe varies not only according to the brand, but also the style of shoe. The higher the arch, the less support, therefore the less comfortable.
Some Prada styles, such as the Two-Tone Patent Leather Pumps are more comfortable than other styles since they have a height of 85 mm, leather sole, and have a thick heel which provides plenty of support. They have a selling price of $790. Others, such as the Nappa Leather Pumps which are 100 mm in height, are less comfortable. They have a pointed toe which can also provide discomfort for certain users. They have a selling price of $690.

In terms of price to quality, Prada heels are definitely worth the splurge. Even though they can be significantly expensive, and may seem too pricey for just a pair of heels, consider the difference they will provide in terms of comfort to a cheaper alternative, and the good they will do to your feet. While within the luxury fashion spectrum they are not ranked as the most comfortable, they are also not considered the least comfortable. They are considered to be of average comfort.
Another plus to Prada heels is the fact that they are so varied; you can find multiple different styles, heel heights, shapes, fabrics, and detailing within Prada shoes. The comfort level can also depend on how often you wear heels. If you are used to wearing heels consistently, Prada shoes will probably be comfortable for you. If you rarely wear high heels, a Prada stiletto might not be the comfiest fit. Before purchasing, make sure to try on different styles and choose the one that is most adaptable towards you.
