Walking comfortably in high heels is not everyone’s cup of tea. Try to roughen up the sole, give your shoes a test drive before you walk out wearing them or spray your feet with deodorant to ease out the experience, says an expert.

Model Marie Helvin shares tips that will help you wear heels for as long as you desire, reports dailymail.co.uk:

* Make the sole rough: Every time you buy a new pair, take a pair of scissors to the bottoms to roughen them up. Spitting on the soles of shoes also helps. Some use hairspray to give them a bit more grip.

* Wear your shoes once you get home: No matter how silly it feels to be walking round in stilettoes in your pyjamas, give it a test drive. That way you can work out which bits of the shoe rub your feet. Then you stick fabric plasters on the painful bits of your feet, briefly soak them in water before slipping straight back into your shoes and walking around again. This will let your shoes mould. When you do wear your shoes again, they shouldn’t rub.

* Tape toes: If you walk in an unsteady manner while wearing heels, tape your third and fourth toes along from your big toe together. Just make sure you are not wearing open-toes shoes. This will keep foot muscles aligned, which allows the ball of your foot to be steadier.

* Use deodorant, nail file and Vaseline: Spray your feet with deodorant beforehand to stop sweating and increase friction, which will help avoid blisters. You can also use a nail file to rub away any rough edges inside your shoes and coat them with a thin layer of Vaseline. This will avoid sharp edges rubbing and causing you pain or blisters later on.

How long have you been wearing the same shoe size? It is important to realise that women’s feet are constantly changing due to factors such as ageing, weight gain or loss and pregnancy. Still there are a few mistakes that women make when buying that perfect pair.

From buying unfit shoes to wearing heels for a long time are the few basic mistakes that ladies make while buying shoes, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

* Mistake number one: Buying shoes that do not fit now.

Always buy shoes that fit you now. People constantly try on shoes (especially when the heels are in sales), think to themselves “they feel a little tight”, and then convince themselves “Well, they’ll stretch…”. Nine out of 10 times, they won’t, or at least not enough to make them really comfortable. Don’t buy a pair of heels with the hope that they’ll fit in the future. Also, the majority of us have one foot bigger than the other, so when buying shoes fit the shoe to your larger foot.

* Mistake number two: Buying heels in the morning.

Shop for heels towards the end of the day where possible. Our feet swell towards the end of the day and this will give you a truer fitting of the shoe by the end of the day. As well as being uncomfortable, no one wants a foot muffin top on a sexy pair of heels.

* Mistake number three: Wearing heels for way too long.

Wearing heels for a prolonged amount of time is not good for your feet, neither on a short nor long term basis. But let’s face it, every lady loves a good pair of heels to complete that perfect OOTD (outfit for the day). If you wear heels to work or on a night out, try to bring a comfortable pair of shoes along with you so you’re not having to wear them for a prolonged period of time. Once you’ve finished at work or your event is over, swap those heels for a comfy pair of shoes. (Bollywood Country)
