Do you feel like your feet are getting in the way of making the most of the summer season? Here, we list down common foot insecurities and suggest shoe styles that work for them:
1. Wide Feet
Think you can't wear cute shoes because your feet are wide? Think again! Fake slimmer feet by going for styles with pointed toes—these will create the illusion of length from your heels to your toes.

Slingback ballerinas, P1,495, Mango
2. Spider Veins
Do you refuse to go anywhere near open footwear because of the veins on your feet? Good news: "Conservative" shoe styles (like loafers) are big this season, so there are tons of cute options around! You can also opt for open-toed styles with a bit more coverage, like the ones below.

Gladiator slides, P3,250, Melissa
ICYDK, cankles (or unusually thick ankles) are mainly products of your genes. They're apparently a common issue among women—there are outpatient procedures dedicated to getting rid of them. Not loving what your mama gave you but don't want to go under the knife? Strappy shoes can actually work for you—just make sure they fall below the ankle to avoid further emphasizing this area.
Sandals with flower appliqués, P1,999, Charles & Keith
Block-heeled sandals, P1,599, Rubi
4. Unmanicured Nails
Do you feel like you have no choice but to wear closed shoes, because you haven't had time for a pedicure? Closed shoes don't necessarily have to be boring; try styles with fun prints and patches! With shoes like these, you might even have an excuse to skip your next salon appointment.
