What is the trick to being comfortable in heels?
1. Pick your heels right
It's all about the way they are built, what type of heel it has and what material the shoe is made of. Leather will always be the most comfortable as it gets soft and adjusts more to your foot rather than plastic or patent shoes. ===================================================
Office heels: Low/medium heels are enough.You will be in these heels all day long, and will be seated most of the day. These will make you look elegant but professional.
Day heels: You have to pick a heel that is wider than an evening heel. Forget stilettos, you will feel the pain very soon unless you go by taxi and limit your walking. But if you are planning to run around a lot, a comfortable heel is a must. Remember that being practical and appropriate is part of good fashion etiquette.
Dinner heels: Evening heels for dinner can be as uncomfortable as you want. You will be sitting down most of the time and traveling by car.
Party heels: They have to be comfortable enough for you to last 3-6 hours at least. Be clever when you choose these ones.
2. Gel soles
Get all kinds of gel soles and pads. Never wear shoes without at least 1 pair of gel soles. This is how you manage to last in your heels and walk with confidence!
3. Remember to often sit down and rest.
All heels will be uncomfortable to wear at some point, so remember to sit down every 20 minutes or 40 minutes even if you are not tired. The feet need a break from the pressure you put on them.
4. Be blister ready
If you are not used to wearing heels yet, always carry around proper plasters for blisters in case you get an emergency. Make sure you put on a plaster before any harm is made and not when it's too late! This will help you walk with elegance and make an entrance.
