How do you get used to walking in high heels?

Do you use comfort on a daily basis and wear flat shoes, but an opportunity is approaching when you need to do without stilettos, wedges or heels? Do you know that walking in high shoes is not your forte - you are shaky, your legs hurt and instead of thinking about the event, you only dream about changing them for a more comfortable one? Then read our guide on how to get used to walking in high heels!

Step one - choose comfortable high heels

High heels are sure to look beautiful, but may not be the best choice if you are not experienced in walking in heels. Instead of varnished and unstable models, choose the most comfortable high-heeled shoes. We recommend that you choose a variant that will be convenient for you - both in terms of height, as well as material or design. The best decision will be pumps made of grain leather. This one will perfectly fit your foot, which will guarantee comfort while wearing it. They will be perfect to start with Espinto H black pumps. However, if you do not like their aesthetics and prefer a more modern model, you may like them Espinto golden 889 pumps on a yellow pin, and if the occasion you are preparing for is your wedding - they will be perfect Espinto pumps white pearl on a pin.

Step two - gradually increase the heel height

Don't grab a very tall and thin pin. Such a heel can quickly discourage you because you will not feel confident and stable on it. Instead, choose a slightly lower variant with a suitably thick heel, and then gradually increase it. They will be the first to pass the exam, e.g. Goodin pumps with a decorative red stripewhich have a block heel of 4 cm. If you get used to walking in them, choose a higher one, e.g. 8 cm Seastar houndstooth shuttles or elegant black VINCEZA pumps with an additional strap, stabilizing the ankle and keeping the shoe well on the leg. Once you have mastered the art of walking in high heels, the next models may be on a high heel - e.g. pumps on a stiletto heel, navy blue suede.

Step three - practice makes perfect

If you want to get used to walking in high heels as an important occasion is approaching, don't leave learning to walk for later. Choose comfortable shoes and start walking around the house in them. At the beginning, several dozen minutes, and with time increase the time and distance covered. We recommend going for a walk around the estate, wearing high heels to work or meeting friends. The more you wear them, the greater the chance that wearing them will cease to be problematic and embarrassing for you. As we mentioned earlier, also increase the heel gradually. And when the event you are preparing for comes - test your shoes in which you want to perform. When you are going to dance in them all night or travel long distances, you have to be sure that they will pass the test.

Step four - work on your posture

While walking with heels is extremely useful, there is one thing you need to remember - maintaining proper body posture is extremely important. Are you not slouching every day? Excellently! Unfortunately, often ladies who put on high-heeled shoes forget about the correct posture and instinctively lean forward to maintain balance. This not only looks bad, but also makes your spine take an unnatural position and the joints are incorrectly loaded. So when you start learning to walk in heels, remember to pull down your shoulder blades, lift your head up, tighten your abs and keep your spine straight. In time, it will become a habit for you to maintain this attitude!

Step five - don't get discouraged!

Learning to walk in heels can put you off - especially if you haven't worn high boots before. This position of the foot stresses the calf and forces you to maintain balance. But remember that practice makes perfect. If you do not get discouraged, you will get used to this attitude and it will be neutral for you over time. The more training you do, the more likely it is that walking in heels will get into your blood. Perhaps in a few weeks you will be moving in high heels like a Hollywood star? Good luck!
