I LOVE high heeled shoes. Love love love them. I do find it difficult to walk in the higher inch shoes (4+ inches). I have a couple pairs that I don’t really like wearing because I don’t want to look stupid and be that girl that can’t walk in her shoes. Any tips? Is it one of those practice makes perfect type things?

yeah pretty much practice makes perfect. put them on in your home and walk in them for a couple hours each day so you get used to them.
i have a pair of nearly 6 inch (platform included) heels to get used to this way. i figure if the models on the runway could figure out how to do it, so can i!

You should wear them when you’re at home… so you can practice and no one can see you when you trip :D

It definitely is a practice makes perfect thing. You could also try working on your balance in general, maybe doing yoga or something.
I don’t wear heels that often but when I do I don’t have any problems walking in them, but I think I have better balance in general than a lot of people.

yeah, I definitely don’t have good balance in general. I sometimes wear flats and trip on the flat ground just walking. I do enjoy wearing heels so I guess I definitely need some practice.
thanks all!

It’s definitely practice makes perfect.

Even if you get used to wearing 4-inch heels, not all 4-inch heels feels the same way. For some reason, all the shoes have a different feel to them when you wear them.

So I would definitely say wear them around for a little bit before you take them out for the world to see. It also helps to break it in a little and let your feet mold into the shoe. Sounds cheesy — but it helps me. :)

Yepp, as everyone said, practice! I honestly lack any coordination whatsoever and trip over my feet all the time (more so while wearing flat shoes, actually).

And kinda unrelated – but I love drinking while wearing heels. Weird?

Definitely agreed, practice practice practice!

@catherinee, I only wear heels when I’m going out to bars so I always make the same correlation!

I agree with the drinking thing! I like dressing up when I go out so it makes sense.

haha @ drinking when wearing heels.
i do like wearing heels when going out for that too.
if you can own walking in your heels while drunk or tipsy then you’ve got it down.

I actually find that I can walk the best in heels anywhere between 3-5 beers. I’m also fluent in Spanish in that beer range too.
