How to Walk In High Heels Without Pain: advice for beginners

If you’ve never worn heels on a regular basis, a pair of 6″ stilettos probably isn’t the best place to start.

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.

“This is how I dress down a skirt – or actually a dress – for a cold snowy day. By pairing some OTK boots with a shorter skirt you accomplish two things, you make the skirt appear longer and you keep your legs warmer. Plus these babies have some nice treads on the bottom so no slipping on the ice.”
