High Heels: How to walk in heels

High heels can be a girl’s best friend—helping you to stand up taller, look slimmer, and feel more confident. However, walking in sky-high heels can be a little tricky, especially if you’re not used to it.

Walking in the highest heels isn’t like the walking you learned to do when you were a child, so you have to do a few things that might feel counterintuitive: Take small, slow steps, making sure not to bend your knees any more than you normally would. You’ll notice that high heels tend to shorten your stride a bit. The taller the heel, the shorter the stride ends up being. Don’t try to fight this by taking bigger steps—stick with small, dainty steps which will make your walk look more natural and help you to feel more comfortable.

Put your heel to the ground first, followed smoothly by your toes. Then, once your weight is on the balls of your feet, shift your weight forward as if you’re walking on your tip toes, and push forward for the next step.

Walking well in heels is very dependent on maintaining good posture. If you’re slouching and shuffling as you walk, it kind of defeats the purpose of wearing high heels in the first place—the aim is to look comfortable and confident! To get the perfect posture: Avoid looking down when walking in high heels!   Keep your abdominal muscles engaged, sucking your belly button towards your spine. This will help you stand up straighter while also making your look thinner.

Bend your knees slightly, they should never be locked when walking in heels. Keep your legs close together as you walk and point your toes directly ahead.

  1. I am an ultraconfident woman and I DO NOT wear heels to please men. I wear it to look tall and boost my posture as I am only 5ft 1 and it gives me some well needed height. Heels look far better than flats anyways. I wear both heels and flats.

  2. Some women have very large long manly masculine feet and very loooooong toes. Those type of feet were not made for heels. Why? because it is a masculine foot. If you are a woman with such feet you will definately feel pain and discomfort when you wear heels. In time it will take its toll on your health .
    Small petite feminine feet will have the opposite effect. Small feet can stand the strain of heels as there is not much pressure on the heels while wearing it.
    Experience with two of my exes, the one with small feet felt no pain nor discomfort the one with large feet complained alot about sore feet, pain and blisters.

  4. Am standing at 5 foot 8 and is a size 14 female. My feet are slightly on the large side to be precise, I wear a size 7 and a half to 8 depending on the style of the shoes. It is a nightmare wearing heels and I can hardly find any high heels that fit comfortably, so big fat no I’m a flats girl.

  5. The girl in the picture above is slim so it does not take a scientists to work out that her feet is also thin and can adjust easily in high heels. But what about us normal women with a bit of weight and much much more meatier feet and fleshier toes. How do we conform to this pressure of sophistication.
