What shoes can I wear with swollen pregnant feet?
As your pregnancy progresses, your feet will change and adjust along with the rest of your body. While you go about your day-to-day life, you’ll want shoes to support you while still fitting the environment.
What to look for when shopping for the best pregnancy shoes for swollen feet
Avoid Laces – While you may get away with laces during the beginning of your pregnancy, it will become more and more difficult to lace up your shoes while your future bundle of joy gets bigger. Finding shoes that don’t have laces will save you a lot of frustration and breathing problems.
No buckles or straps – While buckles and straps may be better than laces, they still pose many of the same problems. Having them come loose mid-day without anything to help you refasten them will be something you’ll want to avoid.
Support – A must for any shoe is that it supports your feet and body without any issues. While pregnant, you’ll have enough pains and worries to deal with without adding your feet to the list.
Stretchy – Stretchy shoes allow for the ebbs and flows of swelling. Some days you may be more swollen than others, so stretchiness is nice to have.
Stylish – Being pregnant is not an easy task, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look your best. Don’t think that you can’t look stunning even while your body is growing a new life.

Frequently Asked Questions about Pregnancy Shoes for Swollen Feet
How can pregnancy affect your feet?
During pregnancy, your body produces the hormone relaxin. This hormone gets your body ready to stretch during labor.
Unfortunately, this hormone can cause your feet to get wider and longer. Some women’s feet go back to their pre-pregnancy size, and some do not.
What should a pregnant woman do if her feet are swollen?
If your feet start to swell there are a couple of things that you can do.
- Elevate your feet
- Ask for a massage from your partner
- Reduce standing in one place
- Reduce salt intake
Does walking help swollen pregnant feet?
Short walks can help reduce swollen pregnant feet because walking increases blood flow to the affected area. Be careful not to walk for too long though because swelling can get worse!
Swollen feet are just one of those glamorous things that we have to deal with during pregnancy! Finding the right footwear can make swollen feet more manageable.
