There is no way you won’t identify someone who is wearing heels for the first time. Their legs are waggy, wobbly or unstable and they are very uncomfortable. You will begin to wonder ‘who sent them’? At the end, they will simply switch the high heels for ballerina flats because of the pain. You do not have to be like them. You can still wear a heel like a pro even if it is your first time. Read on to know how:
—Wear the correct size
For any footwear you are wearing, you should always wear the correct size (not too big, not too small). If it is the wrong size, you will feel pain in your feet which can make wearing heels very unbearable. In fact, you may abandon wearing heels because of the bad experience you had for the first time.
—Wedge heels are better
Thin and narrower soles are likely to break. So, do not kick off your heel journey with slim heel soles. You should wear a wedged heel which is balanced and won’t give way. As you get used to wearing heels, you can try the slim or thin heel soles.
You should not be routed to a particular spot whether you are wearing heels or not. You should walk around a bit to stretch your legs and if you can remove it, do not hesitate.
Heels are much more comfortable to walk in when they are strapped to your legs.
—Score the bottom of your heels
To make your heels less slippery, you should score the bottom of your heels. You can use a stone or better still you can scratch it in sand. The rougher the bottom of the heels, the more the friction and the less likely you are to slip.
—Let your thighs lead when walking
The thigh is that part of the human leg between the hip and the knee. Walking with the thigh may take a while because you are used to leading with your feet but you will soon be comfortable when you wear heels more often. So, when you walk, allow your thighs to lead and move your entire leg along.
—Check the position of the heel
The heels should be at the centre of your shoe and not directly under. If this is not the case, you should not buy or wear that shoe.
