Many do not know this, but the shoe has magical powers. Did you know that the right shoe can elongate the leg? To fake a longer leg, continue the line down from the leg to the foot with a slightly narrow toe. It doesn't have to be a point, but a slimmer shoe creates the illusion of a longer leg. A thick toe on a shoe, says thick ankle. Thick heel adds too much weight at the bottom. Although unintentional, a heavy thick shoe says a lot of the wrong things regarding shape.
