Walking in heels takes a certain amount of skill, especially when we’ve had a year of wearing slippers none stop. We’re here to help you navigate the minefield that is stiletto heels so that you can treat yourself to a new pair of heels and they won’t live in their box in the back of your wardrobe forever. Keep reading to find out our tips on how to walk in heels.
How to walk in heels
1.Walk Heel To Toe
Don’t make the mistake of putting your whole foot down at once like you would in a pair of flats. This may come natural to some and to others it may need a little more thought, put your heel down first and then your toe. This will make your walk look more natural.
2. Take small steps
Wearing heels makes your strides shorter than normal, so you’ll have to take an increased number of smaller steps in order to cover the same distance
3. Don’t rush
Trying to walk quickly in heels when you’re unstable can lead to a disastrous trip or make you look more awkward. Take your time and think about the process.
4. Lean slightly back
Allow yourself to lean slightly back when wearing heels to balance out your urge to lean forward when wearing heels.
5. Visualise yourself walking
You’ll walk more gracefully if you’re looking at where you’re walking rather than looking down at your toes. Pick an end point and stride confidently towards it.
6. Make sure your shoes fit
If your shoes don’t fit properly then the simple task of walking in your shoes becomes difficult and you’ll end up with blisters if they’re rubbing or you’re trying to compensate. Try using shoe pads if your heels are too big or stretching your shoes if they’re too small
7. Opt for a comfortable heel height
Heels that feel too high for you to walk in are probably too high for you to walk in. There’s so many midi and low heel options that are super stylish and are easy to walk in, check them out in our collection of new shoes.
