We all know how painful it is to walk in high heels. Particularly for beginners, you might find yourself tripping or wobbling your way to your event. Or you might end up completely throwing your heels away if you find the heels to be very uncomfortable. We’re pretty sure that there have been thousands of ladies whose had a bad experience with heels. Luckily some women have found various ways with getting used to walking with heels and choosing the right kind of heels for beginners. Some of them may include using tools that will make your heels feels comfortable. So let’s take a look at the following tips and tricks from the articles below.
If you’ve never worn heels on a regular basis, a pair of 6″ stilettos probably isn’t the best place to start. Instead, go for something mid-height, and, once you’re used to walking in those, start to gradually work your way up. Thinking about it now, I reckon this is how I “learned” how to walk in high heels: I wasn’t aware of it as a learning process at the time, but I know the heels I considered super-high as a teenager, say, would feel pretty low to me now, so I think I started small and moved up without really noticing.
In general, the thinner the heel, the harder it’ll be to balance on it, so when you’re still getting used to walking in high heels, choose thicker, sturdier heels, which will give you more stability and confidence.
Platform shoes might look crazily high, but they can actually be much easier to walk in than non-platforms, as the platform makes the heel feel shorter. A four-inch heel with a one-inch platform, for instance, will feel like you’re walking on a three-inch heel, which is a lot more reasonable! read more at foreveramber.co.uk
Love heels but don’t feel confident wearing them? No problem. With a few nifty tricks on your side, you’ll be able to nix any pain and walk gracefully in even the most sky-high heels. Before too long, you’ll be thinking like Victoria Beckham, who once famously said, “I can’t concentrate in flats.”
Before you take a single step, let’s talk about those pretty shoes on your feet. Do they fit properly? Are they comfortable? If you’re slipping and sliding around or feeling stabbing pains on the balls of your feet from the get-go, your chances of walking effortlessly are pretty slim. But with the help of a few sneaky heel-helpers, you’ll get there. Head to a department store or shoe shop, and ask for the support you need:
Now that your shoes are ready, it’s time to work on looking elegant — and that comes down to posture. Plus, heels pitch your weight forward, so you need to balance that with some clever body movements. When you’re walking in heels, you want to stand tall, strong and confident. To do that, roll your shoulders back and down, and make sure your head is in line with your spine. Gently engage your abdominals (like you would in a Pilates class) to protect your lower back, and bend your knees ever so slightly. Lastly, place your heels directly behind your toes.
When wearing heels, you may find yourself leaning forward. This usually means you’re trying to walk faster than your heels will allow. To counteract this, lean back a little. If you’re standing still, shift weight from one foot to the other to alleviate pressure. Model-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner relies on this trick, telling Elle.com, “I switch from one foot to another a lot, like this.
