Learn the Art of Walking in High Heels

Walking in high heels is an art that is not entirely easy to master. Here are her top tips to help you get the most out of your heels.

Put on new shoes

You must wear new shoes before you can use them. You can also “crack” them by massaging the material with your hands and prying and twisting the shoes. Heat with a hairdryer, so they form more easily. The shoes should be shaped to your foot, not the other way around.

Practice squats

Some exercises train your ability to walk in high heels. Try squats in high shoes, make circular movements with the foot to soften the ankles, do toe lifts (without shoes) that strengthen your calves.

Swing with your hips

the leg should be stretched, and do not forget to swing your hips when walking in high heels. But the secret lies in not taking too big steps forward.

Think of the pad

You should not put in the heel only when you go downstairs and when the surface is tricky (such as grass or cobblestones).

Perfect heel height

According to doctors/scientists, the ultimate heel height is 7 cm (if you have a normal-sized foot) and above. If you have heels higher than 11 cm, the foot load will be too high.

Never take off your shoes!

If you are at a party and have pain in your feet:

  1. Sit down and rest.
  2. Do not take off your shoes or put your feet up.
  3. Sit down, but leave the soles of your feet against the floor.

When we lift our feet, or take off our shoes, the underside of the foot swells, which makes it even worse to walk in the shoes again later.

Ankle strap facilitates

Shoes with an ankle strap and plateau in the front are easier to put on if you are a beginner.
