4 Major 🔑s To Wearing High Heels

The transition from wearing flats or sneakers as a little girl to wearing high heels is a definite right of passage. It’s a life changing event that takes you from girl to grown ass woman.  Like going from training bra to Victoria Secret.  Or from clear chapstick to colored lipstick.  I’m talking serious fashion milestones here!  When I was younger, I would scroll through pages and pages of fashion magazines admiring the models shoe game.  Just dying for the day to do the same thing.  Around 13, my mom decided that I was “grown enough” to start wearing heels.  That same day, I ran to the mall, allowance in hand, in search of the tallest high heels that I could find.  I still laugh at the amount of time that I practiced walking around the house until I made my debut to the world.  Once I perfected, I hit the ground running…literally.  Nowadays, shopping for 8 hours, carrying around a niece or nephew, chasing someone down (😏) all gets done in heels.  Which is why I’ve given myself the title of being a Stiletto Specialist.

You’ve seen women who are tip-toeing, limping, crawling, and hopping their way in high heels.  And if that someone is you, don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone.  It has to stop. Take note of these four major keys to rocking high heels:

🔑 #1: Get your size, not someone elses’ – That horrible feeling when you see a pair that you really want but they only have size 7 and you need an 8 is enough to buy them anyway.  But don’t do it.  No matter how much they have reduced the price.   Obviously, there won’t be any strutting going on if the shoes don’t fit.   Try them on.   Keep in mind that your feet will naturally shift a bit forward as you walk.  Make sure there’s enough room for your toes to twinkle and they aren’t rubbing the back of your heel.

🔑 #2: Break ’em in – Shoes get even more comfortable when they have a bit of wear on them. Strut them around the house to break them in before taking them for a spin outside.  Or try using a shoe stretcher.

🔑 #3: Balance Your Lady Lumps – Heels basically make you walk on the balls of your feet.  And even on your tip toes in some cases.  Which makes posture a major key!  Shoulders back, tummy pulled in, and booty poked out is ideal.  It will help to keep you centered and balanced too.  No wobbling for you.

🔑 #4: Be confident – Confidence is a major key when it comes to doing anything.  Because if you don’t believe it, no one else will.

  1. Great article and seasoned with humour! My mother was a Stiletto Specialist, like you! She walked with confidence and looked sensational. She wore them to church and the grocery store. She always looked elegant, that’s what stilettos do when you know how. Otherwise women look clumsy and comical like your funny gifs!

    On the other hand, I am a Flat Specialist. I have never mastered the art of walking long distances, though I have managed walking to the curb, getting into the car and walking into the restaurant. YAY!

    Whenever I do a photo shoot with high heels, you can be sure I have a pair of flats in a bag with me. I do admit stilettos make a woman’s legs look more beautiful, but as for me, I will follow Audrey Hepburn’s footsteps and enjoy the comfort of my ballet flats. 🙂

  2. It a couple of months now since I ditched them, cos I am not a ‘heels-person’. When I will have to wear one, though, most definitely will use your tips, so thanks for sharing 😉
