1) Put your Heels on the ground first
Walking in heels is quite different from walking in flats. When wearing high heel shoes, make sure to touch your heels on the ground first. If you try to put your toes first, your run the risk of creating imbalance on foot and your walk may look & feel unnatural and awkward.
2) Take Baby Steps
Especially if you are a newbie or you are wearing super high heels, taking baby steps will give you the comfort and confidence you need while walking in shoes. Remember – looking graceful is much better than falling flat on your face!
3) Avoid Smooth Shoe Soles
Have you ever tripped (almost) while walking in heels that you trust the most. The most comfortable and reliable heels do wear out at the outer sole. Add traction to your smooth shoe sole or prevent the brand new shoe sole from wearing out by using Sole Shielders.
4) Guard Your Stilettos with Heel Protectors
Heel caps are the first to wear out on your heels. Cracked or worn out Heel tips cause tripping hazards and can cause sprain. Heel Protectors can prevent or help manage the worn-out heel caps on your favorite everyday heels.
5) Watch your Posture & Feet Arch
Walk straight up. Slouching forward can happen naturally in high heels because your weight shifts forward due to heels. This can cause back or knee pain. Walk up straight with shoulders in line with your back. This will also help you look taller and confident.
Also, consider arching your feet slightly. This will help to put a bit of pressure on the inside of the shoe, giving you more balance.
6) Practice - Practice - Practice
Practice makes a person perfect! This isn’t just a saying – it works! The trick is in not giving up and you will succeed in carrying yourself confidently and effortlessly in the most uncomfortable looking pair of heels.
Walking in heels might seem daunting at first, but with practice and the right guidance, you should become a pro in no time.
