TBD's Tips To Make Wearing High Heels Less Painful
We love our heels and for good reason. Heels not only make us look taller but also shape our legs making them look more toned and sexy. Statement heels can make even make a basic ensemble look spectacular. However, with all the goodness heels bring, they also bring tremendous feet pain, whether you admit it or not. While we can dream of a day when heels won't hurt at all, here are some tips to make high heels less painful.
A cute looking pair of heels that you saw whilst street side shopping may be seriously tempting you into purchasing it. And, why not? It looks good, plus it's the street, so it's inexpensive, right? Right, but still don't. Cheap roadside heels are rarely comfortable and don't really give your feet much support. Roadside heels have a higher chance of hurting than a pair of branded ones.
When trying on your footwear, pay special attention to the fitting at the toes. If you feel that your toes are squeezed up and cramped for space then don't buy the footwear. You may think it is only a little tight and you can handle it, but remember this little tightness will get worse after an hour of walking in those heels.
Your Size Only
There is a reason there are so many shoe sizes – because honestly, one size does not fit all. As much as you may want to believe that buying heels only half a size smaller than yours will do, it really won't. Even half a size big or small makes a big difference. Stick to your size only, even if the really hot pair of heels is not available in your size.
If you want the fanciness of high heels but don't want to compromise on comfort then pick a pair with thicker heels as compared to pencil thin heels. Thick heels will help distribute your body weight more evenly across your foot, with your heel taking a considerable weight so that your toes aren't burdened with too much.
If you are a newbie to heels, then please refrain from going all out with a pair of six-inch stilettos. Start small with kitten heels and get the feel of it, and gradually go higher. This way you will know how to balance yourself and how to comfortably strut around in heels, thus saving you a whole lot of pain.
