4 Ways To Wear High Heels Without Pain

Hello ladies,

After a pretty long hiatus, I am back with a pretty useful and noteworthy post.

If you are a woman, high heels have definitely adorned your feet at some point in life. While most of us here might speak Loubs like the back of our hands, but these simple tips can save our dainty feet from the torture that no one speaks about, but moans about the very next day – let’s not deny!

High heels without pain

1.  Pick the right size: Sure those are the last pair of shoes and it will look perfect for your girl’s night out, but if it isn’t your size, walk away. We women have a tendency of trying to squeeze ourselves into a dress or shoe we love, even though we are well aware that it’s a size tad too small. Not only will you be super uncomfortable throughout the night, but people can tell too. So if you don’t want to be staggering your way through the restaurant in pain and look forward to the potentiality of blisters and shoe bites – find the right size.

2. Sway those hips and work those thighs:  Ever watched those runway models work their high heels on the ramp? Well sure, they are a pro. But a little practice and you won’t be far too. Leading with your thighs and using your hips while walking in heels, will reduce the uncomfortable stomping of your feet. Rather than just moving your feet, move your whole leg forward, practice this to reduce those painful aches after a night out.

3.  Skip those stilettos:  A wider base will always support your posture and prevent those painful shoe bites and prevent swollen feet . I know, I know those sleek stilettos in the Kurt Geiger ad campaign are to die for. Unless you want a bad back, ugly bunions and painful red feet, give them a skip and why not go for wedges, they really are in vogue these days and your feet will worship you for the choice.

4.  A lil ‘ bit of cushioning:  If everything else fails, and you really want those stilettos or if it’s going to be a pout-ful February for you, purchase those cushion inserts your local chemist stocks on and TVC loves to advertise. Trust me, they are worth making your buddy for a long night out. Prevents you BIG time from the ruthless scars your heels are famous for giving.

      Me too! I love my flats, my height is not too bad so I get away with wearing flats quiet easily. Currently loving my Nike Roshe’s!
