Wearing heels that are sexy and comfortable

Before and during the party:

  • Be sure to get padded cushioning for under the balls of your feet, and toes, if possible.
  • Be sure your toenails are well trimmed—the pressure of cramped shoes on long nails can be excruciating
  • Wear your new high heels for several hours before your big event
  • Tuck band-aids and gel pads in your purse, to use at the first sign of pain
  • Try not to wear stilletos for more than 3 hours at a time

And there's more: High heels contribute to pain in our Achilles tendons, ankles, knees, and—since wearing heels thrusts our bodies forward into an unnatural position—our backs. 

Still, most of us aren’t willing to give up sexy high heels altogether. But there are some ways to wear stilettos and feel--well, maybe not great—but at least better at the end of the night:

Choosing high heels:

  • High heels push feet forward, cramming toes into the front of the shoe; the pointier the toe box of the shoe, the more your toes will be crushed. For some women, a more rounded toe box, or even an open toe will relieve some of that potential pressure
  • The more straps on a sandal, the more opportunity for blisters
  • Don’t opt for teete...
