High heels are a girl’s best friend, but they can be challenging to wear if you don’t know the tips and tricks all the experience girls use. If you’re new to the heel world, then you’ll know they can hurt after only an hour or two of wearing them, and you need the best life hacks to prevent the blisters from getting awful on your feet. Since heels have been around for a while, there are tons of tips and hacks out there you should definitely make use out of! It’s not always easy wearing them and being a woman can be difficult at times. But, heels make you feel amazing, and they look great too, so stick it out, and you’ll be fine.
Below we have some quick and life-saving hacks every woman needs to know before she goes on a night out or to a fancy event wearing heels. This advice is sure to make things a lot easier, and you’ll have a better time too!
The thicker the heel, the better
We’re not entirely sure why this is the case, but we’re pretty sure it’s something to do with surface area. If you’re attending a wedding or an event that means you’ll be standing around on the grass for a portion of time, you want heels that aren’t going to sink into the ground. Having a thicker heel also means you have a lot more area to work with and use when you walk. You can opt for a thinner heel but do this at your own risk!
Ensure your heel is the right shoe size
No bigger or smaller, you want it to place on your foot just right! Having the perfect sized heel will mean you don’t end up with blisters or sores on your feet. So many women think that buying a pair of heels in a smaller size will mean they won’t slip off, but the opposite is true. If you decide to buy a shoe thats too small, then it could severely restrain your foot and end in lots of unwanted tears.
Opt for a platform
There are countless women out there who are put off by platformed heels because they look a lot bigger and harder to walk on. However, having the heel means your foot will feel a lot more comfortable as thinner soles are never a good idea. The heel size will be bigger, but since you’ll have the platform on the bottom, your foot won’t be at a strange and uncomfortable angle. You want to be able to dance the night away in the heels, not take them off after 20 minutes!
If you’re at a long event or wedding, then wearing heels will take its toll. But, taking breaks can prevent you from really hurting your feet too! Perhaps if you’re sitting down and eating dinner (and no one can see your feet), you could take them off for a little while. Or maybe if you know, you’ll be sitting during a ceremony or service, that’s a good time to take them off too! Whatever you decide, breaks will be your life-saver when you’re wearing heels.
