Uncomfortable heels are a really awful thing to experience. The craziest night of the year approaches so a few tips to prevent this awkward situation could come in handy. Who says that high heels cannot be worn every day?
#1 Get silicon cushion pads that will relieve foot pain caused by force. This will help you wear your favorite heels for much longer.
#2 Remember, it is easier to walk in chunky heels and keep balance than constantly lean on the forefingers while walking in silhouettes.
#3 Don’t have time to walk in shoes and get used on them? Fill ice bags with water and put them in your shoes. Then put the shoes in the fridge together with the ice bags. As water freezes, shoes will become wider.
#4 Put on thick socks and wear high heels to break them in. Then blow dry your heels. Thanks to heat, the material of your heels will become softer resulting in shoes more pleasing for your feet.
#5 Secure third and fourth toe with a bandage or a piece of tape. This will relieve pressure on the nerves which is responsible for that unpleasant feeling of pain you experience while wearing high heels.
#6 When you’re wearing high heels, there is one simple rule you need to follow: take heel-toe steps.
#7 If you’re wearing shoes in which your feet are slipping forward, put some hair spray on your feet and then wear high heels. If you hear squeaking, put some baby powder in your shoes as well.
#8 Apply blister balm on areas prone to blistering.
#9 Buy high heels in the afternoon when your feet are at the largest.
#10 Always pay attention to the position of high spurs. It is best when a high heel is located right below the middle of your heel. The more remote from the middle of your heel the spur is, the harder you’ll keep balance and the more you risk a chance to develop foot pain.
#11 Spray some dry shampoo on your feet to keep them dry.
Also, remember to take a break from high heels. Nobody will know you took them off during a dinner. Wear an extra pair of shoes with lower heels. That way you’ll minimize the pain when you put on the other pair again.
