The age old question I get the most when I wear heels and do a lot of walking is, how do I wear those? Don't they hurt my feet? How can I walk in them?
#1) Start off small. Those big Frankenstein-like platforms or 6 inch stilettos you have been eyeing? Perhaps start off with a smaller platform and heel then work your way up.
#2) I usually try a good gel insert. I use Doctor Scholls. If not, I stretch my toes and feet by moving them in a circle motion before putting them on. I am not really good with doing this in the morning but I try. When I do, I find it helps. Perhaps I have gotten lazy with the stretching because my husband often gives me foot rubs!
#3) Don't walk like a duck! Let me elaborate on this. I have seen way too many women walk with their toes sticking out, kinda like in a "V" pattern. This is not very flattering. Please don't do that. It is very unattractive.
Do try to walk like a ballerina, on your toes first then add pressure on your heel. Pretend you are a circus performer on the high wire! This will eliminate the "V" pattern duck walk!
#4) Another thing I like to do, especially back when I was single and today, while I am with my husband, I sway my hips when I walk in heels! Try it! Put your left foot out and sway your left hip as you walk. When your right foot goes out, put your right hip slightly out. Imagine a cat walking in slow motion. They have a stalk to their walk. I think this is captivating. As you slink, your hips will sway naturally! You don't know how much attention I used to get (both wanted and unwanted) when I would do this! Perhaps this is why my husband is so willing to give me those foot rubs, eh? Ha! Ha!
Today, I can walk up steep hills in heels and I sometimes forget that I am even wearing them. Do you wear high heels? What is your take on them?
