Great advice :) what about if the area near my ties hurt? Does that mean I'm distributing the weight incorectly when I walk? Idk I've always had issues with heels I'm only 16 but I think it's vital that a woman learns her walk early on in life [:

or she could mean "thighs" as well because that always hurts when i wear heels :)

I'm going to assume that you mean "toes" instead of "ties" since the latter doesn't make much sense. I think the ball of foot cushions should help with toe pain too. However, it could also mean that your shoes are the wrong size or are too narrow in the front. This happens especially with higher heels. Maybe practice with 2.5" heels first and work your way up. And make sure your shoes fit!

awesome, thanks wendy! I'm a high-heel complainer, so I think I'll give them another shot. i love tip posts, so bring them on if you've got more! btw- just want to say that I appreciate that you make your name at the end a link to your chictopia account. Small detail, but I often find mysellf searching everywhere to get to a blogger's actual account! :)

You're welcome! I like Dr. Scholl's insoles because although they are a bit pricier than random-brand ones, they stick better to your shoe. Nothing is more annoying than insoles sliding around all the time, trust me!

Love this post! I certainly need help when it comes to heels, since I tend to have a very poor sense of balance. I'm falling all over the place when I try on heels at stores.
