try not walking straight down the stairs, but at angle. Models tend to tilt their bodies to the side instead of dead on. This helps with gracefully going downstairs and not falling. Just let it come naturally too! hope that helps!posted almost 8 years ago
whenever I’m on heels and going downstairs i always ask for assistance.
not the kind of assistance grandparents have! ^^
more like a partner, so that no one will notice I’m having a hard time going down stairs.
that helps me a lot.
Walking down stairs in heels is hard. I usually hold someone’s hand for a bit of support and lightly hold the banister, but I’m pretty sure I look like a gawky penguin anyway..posted almost 8 years ago
angle, rail/lightly touch the wall if necessary, or ask for someone’s hand if your shoes are quite difficult.posted almost 8 years ago
i agree with lindseyrenee. i turn at an angle and always hold onto a railing if available. i take light steps too, instead of thumping down the stairs. it’s easy to end up stomping, but you want to walking on your tip toes to avoid that.posted almost 8 years ago
I go down sideways. Well, almost sideways.
It seems to me though that going down stairs in heels is harder than going up them.
haha i always have this problem. i usually end up clutching the rail and inching slowly down, or, if it gets too bad, just taking my heels off.posted over 7 years ago
lol heels nd stairs are not a comfortable match
i usually tilt my body at a slight angle, look straight ahead like i’m confident that i look like someone who wears heels all the time and not a complete amature, lightly hold the banister and go down SLOWLY.
i used to strut down stairs, without hanging on to anything, and I managed just fine. however, for some reason i’ve developed a very strong fear of falling down stairs recently, so i basically grip the railing for dear life now, haha. I don’t think it’s really that hard, you just have to know you can do it.posted over 7 years ago
I remember when I was in high school every other one of my classes were upstairs so I quickly learned how to walk down stairs. Fist hold the rail, but put most of the pressure on the palm and try to leave your fingers some what normal looking. White knuckling down doesn’t show confidence at all. The second part, walk down with just the pad/toes touching the stairs. This way you avoid the clunking sound and if you’ve ever fallen down stairs in heals you’ve probably noticed its usually when the heal goes down. Hope this helps (^_^)/posted over 7 years ago
