So you’ve decided to take on the challenge of competing in a bikini, fitness, wellness or figure competition. Congratulations! It’s an exciting journey, and you’re in for a lot of hard work and dedication. 

One of the most important elements of your look is your competition heels. Your heels can make or break your look, so it’s important to choose them carefully. Here are some tips to help you pick the perfect competition heels.


Bikini Competition Heels

Fitness competition heels for most organizations need to be clear and have at least a 4-inch heel. If you don’t feel comfortable in 5 inches, you can purchase a 4.5-inch and practice in those until you work your way up to 5 inches. The purpose of your shoe is to enhance your calf muscle and elongate your legs.

Pick a Shoe That Fits Well

It’s important to find a shoe that fits correctly. With online shopping growing increasingly popular, you may not be able to try on a shoe to know if the fit would be best for you. Going to a store and trying on different shoes will be the best way to do this, as you can get a sense of the size, width, comfort, and overall wearability. 

If shopping online, it's important to take note of the sizing chart of the website you're purchasing from. Many sites will have a chart that lists the measurements of the shoe in different countries' size standards. It's also important to pay attention to the reviews of the shoe & the product description.

Usually, Clear Vinyl Competition Heels run narrower at the front. But the vinyl stretches out as you practice in them. In some cases if it stretches out a lot, and because on your competition day, you will be water depleted, the shoe may become big. In this case, you can add some gel insoles for a tighter fit. 

Choose a Style

~ Strap or No Strap~

Choosing between a strap and a no-strap shoe style depends on your personal preference. Strap shoes, such as sandals, are often more comfortable and secure, and the straps can provide additional support. 

The strap style feels more secure, especially if you’re not used to walking in high heels.

But if you feel confident in walking in high heels, we recommend the slip-on style.

The choice of plain clear heels or rhinestoned heels is up to you and your personal style. Since this is a fitness competition your stage presence is very important. 

Sparkling shoes look amazing on stage, and they offer another touch to your bikini and physique. And there are many options for rhinestoned shoes, as little as just the top strap, or the entire heel encrusted with rhinestones.

The more you practice in your shoes, the easier it will be to work the stage.

Practice posing in your competition heels daily- it will strengthen your posing to showcase the best of your physique because you’re in it to win it!
