Any fashion lover knows that heels are important to a stylish wardrobe but there is always that plaguing question of how to wear heels without the pain.
Read these tips below on how to wear stylish shoes without paying the painful price.
Know Your Foot Type
The best way to know your foot type is a podiatrist. In case you can’t run out to the podiatrist, there are other ways you can check to see if you have a flat foot or a high-arch foot. Wet your foot and step onto a piece of construction paper. When you make an impression, it will show you how much your foot is flattening or how high of an arch you have.
Wear The Right Shoe Size
The first rule to wearing shoes it to make sure you have the right shoe size. Ensure you have your foot sized once a year because the foot size changes over the years especially after having kids. Have your feet measured when you are buying shoes, for width and for length as well.
Avoid Thin Heels
They cause your foot to wobble around. Sometimes, the dress is just going to call for a stiletto, as long as it’s something that’s occasional. If you’re wearing stilettos every day, you might want to consider a chunkier heel style and change it up a bit.
Avoid thin soles, opt for a platform instead. A shoe with a chunkier sole or a little bit of a platform will offset some of the pressure when you are walking and a rubbery material will absorb that pressure.
Stretch your feet after you take your shoes off, The stretches that you’ll want to do are the stretches that will target the front of the foot and ankle, like pointing your toes down and pulling your toes up with a strap to get the Achilles’ tendon and the calf muscles. And then side to side to get to the instep and the outside of the foot.
