High heels particularly are of great benefit. One, they make you look tall. Two, they enhance your personality. Three, they make you look confident.
But, of course, these heels aren’t as beautiful as they look. They pose a lot of discomforts sometimes. It is stated by orthopedic doctors that wearing the wrong kind of heel may impair the bone structure of your feet. It might even cause permanent damage. Therefore, deciding the right kind of heel is very important.
Heels possess various types of inconveniences such as blisters, pain, straining posture.
Here are some hacks for your high heels:
1. Freeze your Heels
A new heel is usually compact, and the material isn’t breathable. So, keep your brand new heel in the freezer for some time. Also, place a zip bag filled with water inside your heel. This expands the material. This also stretches the heels and makes it easier to fit your feet.
2. Apply roll-on Deodorant on edges
The sides of a heel are always ready to give you blisters which can be very nasty. To avoid this, apply some vaseline or roll-on deodorant to reduce friction between your skin and the heel material. This will prevent the blisters, also making it easier for you to slide in your feet.
3. Tape your Toes
Wearing high heels applies pressure at your feet in many different ways. To avoid unequal pressure and swelling of your toes, tape your 3rd and 4th toe together. This reduces the extra pressure build up.
4. Avoid sweating by Dry Shampoo
Sweating is a natural process of body undergoes cleansing. Our feets are no exception. The smooth and leathery texture of the heel’s sole make our feet sweaty, or prolonged wearing of footwear make our feet sweaty. This sweat can impart foul smell or give you blisters on your feet. To avoid this, apply a coating of dry shampoo before you wear your heels.
5. Regain shine by using Vaseline
Our shoes lose the shine when they have been worn for a long time or have been exposed to dust. Frankly, this is quite annoying! (also, natural). But here’s a tip for you. Apply a coat of vaseline on the heels to regain its shine. The glossiness comes back.
6. Use cushions and insoles for comfort
The insides of our heels aren’t very comfortable, but they can be turned into comfortable ones. Use insoles and cushions to provide the support your feet require. If there aren’t any present when you buy them, go for a branded and good insole/cushion from the market for your heel.
7. Maintain a great walk
It is importance to maintain an excellent walking style when you are wearing a heel. This is advised to prevent unequal and improper pressure on your feet. This might distort your feet structure. For a start, try walking with your heels first instead of keeping your toes forward. This avoids the chance of tripping and also the excess pressure on your toes.
8. Make an insole out of a sock
Now, if you aren’t able to find the insole for your heel, make one out of your sock. Put on socks and then slide into your heel. Blow dry your socks. This way the heel expands a little bit, resulting in blending into the shape of your feet. Use the socks for insoles all day long.
9. Avoid switching from heels to flats directly
When you’ve been wearing heels for a while, your feet get adapted to the structure. Changing directly from heels to flats is a bad idea, it may harm your feet in ways you might not understand at that moment. So, avoid doing this. First, move on from high heels to lower heels and then to the flats.
10. Use sandpaper for smoothening the sole
The grip of your heel soles gets worn off when it has been worn for a long time. To avoid this, also to prevent slipping, to have a more excellent grip on the ground, rub sandpaper on the bottom of your heel. This might also apply to the new heels whose soles don’t have much grasp.
11. Soak your feet
When you decide on wearing heels for an occasion, make sure to soak your feet in lukewarm water for 20-25 minutes. This softens the skin of your feet and hence makes it more comfortable to wear heels.
12. Shop your heels at night
It is often said that your feet get swollen by the time sun sets, if the shoe fits by that time, it means you won’t have to struggle to fit on your feet every morning.
So, be smart. Shop at night.
