If you are a woman that is in love with her shoes, chances are that your favorites are those sky high sexy stilettos. These skyscrapers give the illusion of mile long legs and a nice backside, but they can leave your feet aching for hours after you finally take them off. We all own at least one pair of these painful yet stunning shoes, and as beautiful as they are we tend to avoid wearing them to save our feet. Here are a few helpful tips to bring your sexiest shoes out of retirement:
- Gel Inserts. These shoe inserts aren’t just for grannys anymore! There are several brands that are made specifically for high heels, even strappy sandals. Look for an insert with the most padding concentrated on the ball of your foot because that’s where most of your weight is being held when wearing heels. Check out these links to find an insert that works best for you:
- Fast Flats by Dr Scholl’s. These convienient slippers are a lifesaver for those late nights out dancing. Usually around 1 am your feet just can’t take it anymore! These great flats even fold up into a tiny pouch so they can fit inside your cute clutch! Simply put on these black flats and continue with your night out…too bad they can’t help with the hangover the next day. Check out the link below to get your own pair.
- Blister Protection. Not only do high heels cause pain at the balls of your feet, but they can also create awful blisters on the back of your heels. If you happen to get a large blister, it can narrow down your shoe options to just mules and flip flops for weeks! To avoid these painful little monsters make sure that your shoes fit. Don’t be temped to buy those deep discount fierce stilettos in a size that isn’t yours…you will definately pay for it in the long run. Look for shoes of a higher quality. They can tend to be a bit pricey, but your feet will thank you (and so will your pedicurist) When all else fails, try this great blister barrier from Dr. Scholl’s:
- Platforms. This season your feet are in luck! Platform heels can be much more comfortable to wear than just regular stilettos. The platform actually lowers the angle that your foot is positioned at and helps balance your weight more evenly.
