As much as we love our heels, we hate how they leave us blistered, limping and sore by bedtime.
High heels aren’t always comfortable yet it’s hard to ditch them completely. Nothing beats a gorgeous pair of heels when it comes to looking stylish. Heels make your legs look longer, your calves look amazing and they add an elegant touch to your whole outfit.

Tip #1 The deodorant stick to the rescue!
Our deodorant sticks can help maximize the comfort of our heels.
It’s helpful to use a deodorant stick on the buckle or strap of your heel.
This reduces irritation caused by repetitive friction between the buckle and the skin of your feet in contact.
Tip #2 – it’s ideal to shop for shoes in the evening.
Yes, go shoe shopping at night.
Our feet are usually swollen at the end of the day. Shopping for heels in this state helps you know which shoes will pinch your toes when you wear them later.
TIP #3 – Tape your toes
This tip is definitely worth trying. Taping your second and third toes together (counting from the
smallest toe) eases the pain. There is a nerve that splits between your third and fourth toe which causes
pain in the balls of your feet. Stress on the nerve is reduced when the toes support each other.
TIP #4 – Prep your leg and knee muscles.
Walking in heels is totally different from walking in flats. Pretend your feet are in heels and use your
hips and legs to support your upper body while “cat walking”. Do this for a while to get your feet ready
before putting on your heels.
#5 Go for heels with buckles and straps
Adjustable straps and buckles give support to the feet, keeping it in place. This helps to avoid
unnecessary rubbing that causes blisters and discomfort when walking in your heels.
Shoes have evolved over time, but heels continue to be in vogue.
Yes, you can enjoy yourheels without hurting your feet.
Try these tips to make this glory less painful.
