Heels are meant to emphasize the female physique and give women a sense of grace and importance. This can be quite difficult to achieve if one has never worn heels before or does not wear them often. As a matter of fact, wearing heels can be dangerous if you do not know how to walk in them properly. Here I will provide a few tips on how to walk properly in heels for beginners.
Practice at home first
Many first time buyers of heels see a pair they like, quickly buy them then start wearing them instantly. This is a big mistake if you are not used to walking in heels. When you first purchase your heels take a chance to wear them at home first to see how they feel. Note how long you can wear them around the house before they begin to hurt your feet. Having this information is important because then one will know when to wear this pair of heels. For example if you have a pair that hurts after wearing the for only 15 minutes, then you could probably get away with wearing these to a place where you are not on your feet for long periods of time such as a dinner party.
Walk on the ball of your foot, not your heel
Heels are so difficult to walk in because we must walk differently in them then when we wear flats or tennis shoes. Instead of walking on our full foot we must walk on the balls of our feet. The ball of the foot can be located right before the arch and after the toes. Practice walking on the balls of your feet without the shoes gracefully first; then try it with the shoes on.
Wear a pair that is comfortable for you
Lastly always wear a pair that is comfortable for you. It does not matter how stylish a pair of shoes are, if you cannot walk in them because you are uncomfortable people will think you are silly rather than stylish. Get a pair that you can walk in, and if you cannot walk in them practice walking in them. Never get a pair that is tremendously high especially for a beginner. Maybe once you are comfortable with a smaller heel, you may be able to wear a higher heel.
High heel shoes are made to make a woman’s body more curvaceous and graceful. When a woman chooses a pair of heels that she is comfortable in it helps complement her outfit. Just remember that high heels can be very dangerous for beginners that do not practice first and can be embarrassing if one is not walking properly in them. But as long as one follows these simple steps, you should be good to go.J
