How to Walk Better In Heels

how-to-walk-in-high-heels1We’ve given you some tips on how to make high heels more comfortable, but actually walking in them is a whole other story. This story, actually.

Like learning any new skill, mastering the art of walking in high heels takes patience, practice, and a few practical measures. For instance, it’s pretty important to make sure that you’re wearing the proper size shoe. Seems straightforward enough, right? But you’ll be surprised to hear that, in a study conducted by the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (and reported by The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists), 88 percent of American women are wearing shoes that are too small. That’s a pretty staggering figure and points to a super simple change that can make a huge difference in how you walk in heels — not to mention that wearing the proper size shoes will improve your overall foot health.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Here’s some expert advice from around the Web that’ll help us all walk a little better in heels.

Everything You Need To Know About Shoes

british_women_shoes-464218We tend to have a love-hate relationship with footwear. For example, we regularly find ourselves drooling over a pair of cool lace-ups, but unable to find them in our size. Another example: we love the look of heels, but we have trouble walking in them for more than two hours. And that’s why we went to Meghan Cleary, the go-to source for footwear advice. Cleary, who got her start as a marketing consultant on Wall Street, is now the author of Shoe Are You? and regularly doles out foot-focused advice on E!, Tyra, and CNN.

How to Select the Right Shoes for your Clothing

free-vector-womens-shoes-1514402The first step in selecting the best shoes is choosing shoes that complement your clothing, rather than ones that compete with your outfit.

For that reason, I always recommend pairing busier shoes with simple outfits, and wearing simple shoes with clothing that features a lot of prints, embellishments or dynamic accessories. It can be tricky to find shoes that complement your clothing, without dominating or being overpowered by it, but the reality is, it’s a simple balancing act.

  • When you look in the mirror, does one element of your outfit stand out more than the others?
  • Is your outfit too chaotic? i.e. Are the sequins on your shoes competing with the crystals on your dress?
  • Do your shoes and clothing blend together too much? i.e. Do your black pants, black turtleneck, and black booties all look like one long body suit?
  • If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then the quickest way to pull together a cohesive look is to simply try on another pair of shoes, and ask yourself the questions again.

tricks to wearing high heels with no pain

Readers, the ONE thing that can make an incredible Friday night out with the girls totally awful is mind-numbing pain in the heels of your feet because you decided to take your favorite stilettos for a night out on the town!

When I was in college, I was a member of the competitive ballroom dance team–which meant I spent 5 to 6 hours practicing my dances in high heels about four times a week. It was brutal, painful but over the years it made me learn different hacks and tricks to make the pain go away or just reduce the pain a lot. This post is a shout out to ALL MY LADIES out there who brave the pain to look their very best, here are secrets to making those high heels way less painful so you can look great AND feel great as well 🙂

Tip 1 # Warm Water Soak: Before a night out or before an event when you know you’ll be wearing heels for a long time, soak your feet in warm water for 20 mins or so. It relaxes the feet and  releases any pre existing stress or numbness in them.

How to wear flats

Bonjour Mesdames,

After my “how to wear heels“, I had many reader’s requests asking me how to wear flats.

So here are my tips about the subject.

There are three main types of flat shoes that depend of their height (not the height of the heel, they are flats ^^) on the leg.

Beneath the ankle flats such as loafers, ballet flats, sandals, sneakers, etc. such as low boots, doc martens, high chucks, etc.

Knee high flats such as… hum boots, not etc.

The height of your flat shoes determines what clothes will look good with them in terms of figure’s proportions.  When you have figured that out, you can focus on the style matching.

Even though, I rather think, that when proportions are good you can rock almost every outfit mix if you feel like it (i.e creepers and dressed out pencil skirt, ballet flats and rolled up worn-out boyfriend pants).

1. How to wear beneath the ankle flats

Beneath the ankle flats are certainly those that flatters the most people.

By revealing the ankle, they show the full lenght of the leg without “cutting” it.

Therefore they are the best choice to elongate your figure.

Low vamp shoes such as pointy or ballet flats

How to Find Comfortable Shoes

Tips for Finding a Comfortable Pump

  • Hold the shoe at the heel and toe areas. The sole should be flexible and bend at the front of the arch but have a stiff bottom through the arch.
  • Choose a pump with a high heel that is directly underneath the center of your heel. If it is too far forward or at the back of the shoe, you’ll have balance problems.
  • Look for false fronts. “A pointy-toe shoe with an area that is much longer than your toes has a false front. It keeps your toes from being squished,” says Suzanne Levine, a podiatric surgeon in New York City.
  • Make sure the toe area is wide enough through the ball of your foot.
  • Note that a wedge shoe distributes your weight more evenly and offers support all the way through the foot. Be aware, however, that the limited sole flexibility of a wedge increases the risk of rolling your ankle over the side.
  • Test a shoe for cushioning by pressing a finger into the ball area. It should have a little give or a slightly padded feel.
  • Avoid synthetics. Wear shoes with leather, suede, or fabric uppers. These materials breathe, which lessens the chance of blistering.

5 Tips to Choose Great Pump Shoes

Do you love pumps? Then you must pay attention to comfort and style. Many women are not comfortable wearing pumps due to high heels. If you select the right style of pumps, it can really be comfortable. Listed below are some tips on choosing great pumps, read on.

1. Choose comfortable material

While choosing pumps, it is important to select the right material. Many women opt for fashionable pumps, without knowing the material. This can really be uncomfortable. The best bet would be to choose leather or suede. Leather absorbs moisture, so even if it gets sweaty, there is nothing to worry. High-heeled leather pumps are perfect for every occasion.

2. Look for the right fit

Right fit is the safest bet while choosing great pumps. If a high-heeled pump tempts you, wear it and see if it is comfortable. It may so happen that after a while your feet may get hurt because of the heels. So, the next time you buy pumps, consider right fit and comfort. Also, look out for durability while buying.

3. Look for exact size

It is important to measure your exact shoe size while choosing pumps. Most of the shoe shops have a measuring scale. If you know

How To Wear High Heels Without Pain

It’s the age old question every woman: How to wear high heels without pain.. Many of us (guilty, here) have throughout the years adopted a “grin and bear it” attitude, choosing our love for stylish shoes over our desire to be comfortable. It’s a trait we aren’t necessarily proud of, and one that regularly has the men in our lives raising their eyebrows in disbelief.

But, as it turns out, fabulous heels and pain-free feet aren’t mutually exclusive. We spoke to About.com podiatry expert Dr. Catherine Moyer, who gave us eight tips for how to continue to wear stylish shoes—without paying the price in comfort.

 

1. Make sure you are wearing the right size shoe.
The number one mistake women make would probably be not having the right shoe size for their foot. Your foot size changes over the years, even as much as one full size, especially after having kids. Have your feet sized once a year, and do it if you’ve never had it done. Have your feet measured when you’re buying shoes, for width and for length as well. A lot of people think they’re a wide or vise versa and they’re not, so definitely do that before you shop.

Why women are obsessed with shoes

Forget the house, the children or even Flopsy the pet rabbit; it’s time to turn your divorce lawyer’s attention to this thorny question: when a marriage fails, who gets custody of the shoes?

No, seriously. It’s all about the heels. Daniel Shak, a US hedge fund manager, is currently suing his ex-wife, Beth, for 35 per cent of her $1 million (£640,000) collection of footwear (comprising an admittedly gobsmacking 1,200 pairs – including 700 Christian Louboutins, with their distinctive red soles), which he claims she kept secret from him during their bitter divorce three years ago.

Mrs Shak, a feisty poker player, has responded by asking how he failed to notice that the closet in the master bedroom was crammed from floor to ceiling with shoes. (And also, presumably, how he missed her performances on the channel ShoesTV and in documentaries such as God Save My Shoes, and even failed to notice her new blog, shoesrforever.com).

Yet given our love affair with shoes, it is surprising more divorce cases aren’t based around these prized possessions. While some women try to divide the female sex into shoe women or bag women, no item of adornment has inveigled its way into our

1. Always add rubber soles and heel caps.
The soles of most pricey shoes are made of leather—very thin leather, at that. You’ve probably noticed that even after one wear, the bottoms start scraping and thinning, so a thin layer of rubber is a key addition. Any shoemaker can do this for you in minutes, and can match most sole colors (even red, ladies.) If your shoes
