It’s no secret that we are willing to put up with pain, if the pay-off means that we look good. This is especially true when it comes to heels. They make us women feel sexy, confident and empowered to take on the world- but they can have the opposite impression if your feet hurt too badly to walk in. These tips will make your feet feel better than they ever have in heels so that you will never want to take them off.

Make sure the shoes fit you properly- that means no lying to yourself ladies! If the shoes don’t fit right and are so big that you are slipping out, they are going to cause you massive discomfort and if they are too tight this means blisters! If they don’t fit you shouldn’t but them regardless of how cute they are or if they are on super sale and the last size available. Because what’s the point of a shoe that you can’t wear? As they say, there are plenty of fish in the sea.
Moleskin is a miracle against blisters! Simply cut some out and stick it the points on your feet that rub against your shoe the most, like the outside of the big toe or the heel. This will cause the shoe to create friction with the moleskin pad instead of with your foot. And just like that, you are saved from days of discomfort with annoying blisters! If you do unfortunately already have a blister, moleskin will protect it from tearing open the next time you wear shoes.

Shoe shopping at the end of the day is the best way to get the most accurate size, but if you have shoes that are already a bit too tight and you fear that they will give you blisters the second you put them on, you can invest in a simple shoe stretcher. It will make your shoes feel like a new pair!

Ties and straps will prevent your feet from slipping out therefore reducing friction on your feet. It will help your overall walk and prevent you from dragging your feet so that you don’t come out of your shoes. Adjustable straps are also good because they can accommodate for swelling throughout the day, which gives you one less thing to worry about.

Walking in heels is different than taking a stroll in sneakers so you have to adjust they way you walk. Keep your neck and spine as straight as possible- as if you were being pulled up by a string, and walk using your hips to shift your weight from one leg to the other. You walk should look like a light bounce rather than a tired shuffle. Walking correctly will make you be comfortable and look confident all day long.
