Comfortable heels? Yes! They exist! (+ tips)

April 24, 2017

Hello loves! In the last post I shared with you simple items for upgrading your outfit and one of them were heels. In this post I wanted to show you that those few inches of height don’t need to be uncomfortable and you can just rock them all day long without pain!

The secret is in purchasing comfortable, good measured, stable made shoes. Make sure that the difference in slope between the foot front and heel does not exceed 3 cm. It is the best length for your comfort and health.

When I need to buy new pair of heels first I make sure that they are (cute) very comfortable and in a good size for me! It’s like with clothes: different store – different sizes = measurements. In the case of shoes it is even more important. You can’t buy them one size bigger and just wear as oversized, right?

What’s also very important is to always try to walk in heels a decent amount of time (around 10 minutes) in store before purchasing. The first impression, when you put your feet inside is very important too! If you feel like there is something wrong it means it is wrong and better do not to buy them. Trust me. I know “they go perfectly with any outfit and look so damn cute”, but resist and your feet will thank you! I’m guilty of that mistake. Once I was looking for shoes for the wedding and I just couldn’t leave the store without those precious stilettos I fell in love with. Because of that I waste a lot of money and I never wore them once (pain pain pain!!!!)! I was sure “they will get more comfortable for sure! They’re leather! They just need to get used to my feet.” Well… it didn’t happen and instead of those super uncomfortable, gorgeous beige stilettos I had to attend the wedding in my black trusty ballet flats.

For people who don’t like to wear heels or just can’t but really want to learn perfect way to still add some inches are wedges or chunky heel (so trendy now!). They’re both very stable, super comfortable and great for beginners.

If you’re like me and can’t really walk well in stilettos pick the ones on a platform! It’s amazing how without any loss of height they are so comfortable! I have ones from Parfois (pic above) and I could wear them easily for the whole day without any pain!

Great tip that brings a lot of relieve for your feet when you need to wear heels all day long: Wrap with medical tape your 3rd and 4th toe together. That’s all! This trick takes out pressure from your nerve that splits between those two toes that get pressed when you’re in heels, instantly making it easier to walk and reduces the pain! You can also try the whole range of Scholl products made just for high heels wearers. It really helps! I’m a huge fan of those silicone sponges that you put inside the toe section.

So my loves, nothing to worry about! Pick your perfect pair and rock it! Good luck!

    the last two!! 😍😍😍😍 thanks for the tips! I’ll keep them in mind when I go shopping! My fave style are the block heels because I’m plus size so thinner heels can’t carry me at all! Cotton On is my go to for these!

    I have character dance shoes that are heels built on a platform. You can only wear them indoors but can go up to 8cm and wear them all day. Also love Vionic as they’re all built wth arch support. Thanks for the tips xxx

    I like that little idea of tapping the 3rd & 4th toes together. I should try it some time.
