Today I’m going to give you some tips and tricks on how to deal with heels.
- When it comes to choosing the right heels, it is important to choose the right ones: thick heels or direct wedge heels are ideal for girls who are not used to wearing heels because they are much more stable and are ideal for everyday life. If you are already more used to heels, you can bet on thin heels or platform heels: they are ideal for a one-off event or for going out at night. Fines are more unstable, and you have to know how to walk with them. The platform ones are ideal for short girls who want to look tall and are also somewhat more comfortable.
- If these are your first heel shoes, choose one that is comfortable and that you can combine in more than one look. Think that the more flexible your shoes are, the more comfortable they will be.
To choose them you have to think about what your rhythm of life is. For example, if you walk a lot during the day, you’ll have to choose heels that you can handle well. So I’m going to give you some advice on how to deal with them without them hurting us:
- Don’t wear shoes for the first time on the same day you buy them: think that your foot and shoe need to adapt and if you wear them on the same day they can cause chafing, blisters and corns.
- If your shoes feel too tight, try putting two small bags of water in them and then putting them in the freezer. When the water freezes, it will expand and cause the shoe to widen a little more. You can also do this by placing several balls of newspaper and putting the shoes in the freezer.
- If your shoes are slippery and difficult to balance, try scratching the sole with a knife or scissors. This way, it will grip the floor surface better and will not slip as much. You can also put some non-slip stickers on the front of the sole.
- It is very important to wear shoes the size of your foot. If you wear shoes that are bigger than yours, your foot will go forward, so the weight will fall on all your toes and you will be very uncomfortable.
- So that your feet don’t hurt, the essential thing is not to stay too long in the same place standing, without moving. It is good to try to walk or sit down when possible.
It is very important to have your feet very well hydrated to avoid chafing. A homemade remedy you can do is to spread a moisturizing cream on the inside of the shoe to soften the material and avoid chafing. This trick must always be performed until the shoe no longer causes any rubbing.
- You can also use silicone pads or insoles that are placed on the sole of the foot, right on the toes. This way, the footprint will be more comfortable. If you have an emergency and have no other choice, you can use a clip saver as a template. This will prevent our foot from slipping forward.
How to Care for Them
- If your heels are made of synthetic leather, it is best to clean them with a damp cloth or a soft brush; if they are made of patent leather, it is best to use a sponge with soap and water; if they are made of leather, use a soft cloth; and if they are made of velvet, be careful, because they are more fragile than the skin. It is best to use a dry cloth or something damp.
- To polish them, apply a little bitumen of the same colour to a dry cloth and spread it over the entire shoe. Then, wait for them to dry and then wipe them with a cloth or brush.
It is very important to keep them in a clean and dry place, such as your own box or a cover.
