Many women live by the philosophy that "flats are for failures". However, high heels can take a toll on your feet. Wearing heels for an extended length of time, whether it's dancing or just walking, can lead to many foot problems. Some of these ailments include: blisters, numbness, swelling, and general pain. So how are some women able to add heels into their signature look with no sign of pain? Here are some tricks you can try so that you can fall in  love your heels again.

When buying shoes, pay attention to the thickness of the arch, sole and heel. The thicker the sole, the more cushion between your foot and the ground. For thin soled shoes, consider adding a gel insert to help pad the ball of your foot. Heels with a hidden platform can also help give the illusion of wearing higher heels without affecting arch height. Also the chuckier the heel, the more stable you will feel while walking. Some women buy shoes half size larger to prevent rubbing from the feet swelling up at the end of the day. Excessive rubbing is the cause of painful blisters.

Try some of these suggestions and if you are still having pain while wearing your heels feel free to visit as at Advanced Podiatry!
