For women who prescribe to the high-heeled way of life, towering over their peers who have (reluctantly?) given into the flat shoe trend is the only way they know. But we’ve all been there: stepping out for the day in a spanking pair feeling like Carrie Bradshaw, only to regret the ambitious decision 10 minutes later. So while the best of us chirpily state that a little discomfort never hurt anybody, we all know that comfortable, functional heels is the Holy Grail we’re all secretly looking for. And believe us when we say that this is actually within our reach! Our tips on how to score pain-free heels are sole-savers indeed - you can say goodbye to the "grin and bear it" days, and keep your head, heels and standards high! :)

Beautiful heels and acute pain needn't always come hand in hand. Yes, really! You just need to know what to avoid when out buying your next pair. Thin soles are a no-no as they will give the bottom of your foot loads of trouble. Opt for thicker soles or a bit of a platform to offset the pressure when walking. You can add a cushioned foot-bed to existing pairs too.

How comfortable (or not) a pair of heels is has a lot to do with its construction. We’re all for hoarding up on trendy, bargain finds, but if you step out in heels on a daily basis, you may want to choose quality over quantity. Invest in well-designed shoes by trusty brands. It’s better to have a fewer pairs that will last you long than many that will only cause you grief.

We’re no strangers to blisters and know very well how they often rain on our parade. If you’re nodding your head in agreement, then you’re wise enough to know that you shouldn’t take your new babies out for a spin on the same day you buy them. Wear them around the house and loosen them up a bit. Rub Vaseline on the area that gives you blisters or invest in a guard. And, of course, always carry Band-Aid in your purse!
