Every woman has a love-hate relationship with her high heels. Your 10 cm high heels make you feel like you can conquer the world on a Saturday night, but all you wish on a Sunday night is your feet to stop hurting. To avoid having painful feet after wearing high heels, you need to choose your heels more wisely.
1. Watch The Heel
Shoe manufactures use hardening agents on the heel area so you shoes can keep the initial shape. These agents can cause friction and that’s how you’ll end up with blisters. Choose shoes made from real leather or antelope leather. These materials are better than the synthetic ones because they take the shape of your feet and there will be less friction.
2. Leave Some Space
Your feet will definitely hurt if the shoes you’re wearing are too small for you. Make sure to leave some space between the inside of the shoe and your longest toe. You need this space so your feet can move instead of being squeezed.
3. Walk Around
When you try on new heels, don’t just stand, walk around the shop in the heels. While walking, focus on how your feet feel in the heels. If you feel any pressure in your feet, the shoes aren’t good for you.
4. Look for Platforms, Chunky Heels, Small Heels…
If you’re looking for heels that you can wear every day, then go for the heels with platforms, chunky heels or small heels. These types of heels won’t put a lot of pressure on your feet so you won’t be feeling any pain at the end of the day. Thin high heels can cause pain in your feet sooner or later.
5. Shoe Shopping at The End of The Day
Your feet expand during the day, especially during summer, so go shoe shopping at the end of the day. If you buy new shoe in the morning, those same shoes can get tight during the day,
6. Some Extraordinary Tip
Tape together your third and fourth toes with a band aid so you can relieve the pain. This seems crazy right? Here’s why it works: There’s a nerve between these two toes that can cause pain if it’s under pressure. A band aid will reduce the tension in the nerve and will allow you to freely move.
