5 Ways to Make Your Heels Comfortable

 It is a fact that heels are not comfortable. They are not meant to be comfortable. They are meant to set standards high, walk in style and adjust one's expectations accordingly.


You may not know this but you can make any heel comfortable for sometime and are 5 ways to do that.

1. Choose the right fit - A size bigger or an exact fit can be extremely irritating to your feet. They can restrict blood flow, leave marks or even make you trip. The right fit of your high heels would be the one where there is a tiny fingers' gap at the back. 

2. Choose the right heel height - Depending on the shape of the sole of your feet, only a certain type of heel height, shape and size can work for you. For instance, if you love high heels then a natural arch will support this kind of heel height. The best one for you are stiletto heels. If you have a flat foot then you better stick to platform wedges or the likes of kitten heels.

3. Choose the right support - Support can be a life savior if you are new at wearing heels. Strap backs,  T-straps, ankle straps, sling backs and so on. They can help you from slipping or breaking your ankle! Trust me, it has happened to me.

4. Choose the right sole material - If the sole is synthetic or non-absorbent, you will have a slipping tendency towards the front. This will make it difficult for your feet to remain in one place inside the heel. Whenever you go heel shopping then wear it for a few minutes to let the sweat develop (if at all). If however, you are shopping online, read what the insole is made of. Microfiber or cotton lining are better as opposed to synthetic ones.

5. Choose the right heel & shoe shape - Your heel is going to rest more on the front than on the back but, you are going to balance based on your heel width. Hence, both are equally important to keep in mind. If you're a rookie, choose a closed-toe than an open one. If you are hell bent on picking an open-toe then make sure that there is a strap guarding your end toes. Further, start from full heel (entire shoe heel) like wedges than a pencil heel.

Now that you know how to make your heels comfortable, are you ready to shop for heels? Which one is your favourite? Mine are classic pumps.
