Nothing beats the womanly look of sexy long and lean legs and of course, high heels! High heels have a magic power to make our legs look super fabulous, conceal any flaw and lastly boost self-confidence!
However, how many times have you steered away from the highest heel in a shoe shop admitting that you’re simply no longer eligible for such heights? In fact, we all have mixed feelings about those and you are not alone; we love them and despise wearing them at the same time.. Today CIIN will stand by you -in high heels of course- while you become an expert in buying, wearing and standing tall and poised in high heels this summer..
1 || Go For An Open Toe
An open toe has the extra edge of flaunting your pedicure as well as give more room for your feet to spread out and breathe.. This way you’ll plant yourself better and won’t feel claustrophobic or uncomfortable that the high heels are suffocating your feet..
2 || Splurge On The Material!
Leather and suede instead as opposed to synthetic materials is ideal for shoe comfort, they tend to absorb your feet better and stretch whilst wearing..
3 || Support The Ankle Area
High neck-ed heels or heels with straps and buckles actually support your feet big time, so that the pressure of holding up is spread out and comforted by the high heels being in certain styles.
4 || An Arched Sole Is Key To Comfort
Always look at your chosen pair sideways and make sure the sole has a bit of an arch rather than going straight from top to bottom. This natural foot design imitation will be the greatest mold for your feet and prevent blisters and back pain..
5 || When To Try On Shoes?
The best time of day to go shoe shopping would be closer to the end of the day, this way your feet will give you an indication of their true size, usually a bit swollen by that time, you will never fall into the trap of buying tight shoes.
Wait! It doesn’t end there.. If you’re adamant on starting to wear high heels, keep in mind these products that can be used before and after wearing your heels to add further success and comfort to your experience..
There are balms that are used before wearing high heels which can prevent blistering. Apply those on the sole of your foot before you slip on your shoes. Another product would be a menthol smelling spray that acts as a pain reliever, gives a numbing and cooling effect as well as prevent any inflammation.
Using a cooling relaxing gel or cream and massaging your feet up to the knees in a circular motion after a long day walking in heels, will remove any tension in your feet.
