Weird Q: How do you walk in high heels?

 I have always been a jean and t-shirt kind of girl, but i also love high heels. I own several pair, and always buy them with the intention of wearing them, and never do. Two issues: I cant seem to pair them with anything that looks good, assuming because i have a pretty casual wardrobe, and 2nd i just cant walk in the damn things! And DH and I have a very formal wedding in a couple weeks, so i bought a simple black dress, and again, a pair of crazy hot heels. Now im worried i wont be able to pull them off. Im also taller than my husband with them on, and hes 6 2", kind of akward.

I love the idea of high heels..  never mastered walking in them.  Within minutes my feet are protesting.

I walk the same in heels as I do in any other shoes. Sorry, thats not much help! I've just never had a problem with heels.

You just have to wear them on a regular basis to get used to them, then you will walk normally.

I used to work at a place where I wore jeans and heels everyday. Feet never hurt and I wore heels constantly. Now I wear scrubs and sneakers... When I do wear heels, it's a rare date night, and am always sooo ready to have them off!!! Lol

I love my high heels ! I'm always sad that now I'm a mom, i don't really get to wear them. It's usually just lounge time Haha..

Anyway, where them around the house for an hour like each day til the wedding ! Break 'em in or they'll kill you that night ! Did you buy the kind that are extremely tall & make you feel like you're foot is unnatural ? Aka stripper heels, as I call them LOL. Those are always the hardest to walk in, it feels like instead of walking heel to toe you're walking toe to heel.

I do that shaffle walk thing when I walk that most people who have small dogs do..my foot rarely leaves the ground, so I just shuffle along in heels and typically put all the pressure on the front of my foot when using the stairs so I dont stumble lol.
Break them in. When you do you will also see if theyre likely to cut you ankles or not and can get lil bandage things so your ankle wont rub up on it and bleed

Just wear them around the house and get use to walking in them. Get a short heel that's more comfortable and easier to walk in. Practice makes perfect!! Lol
