High heels can instantly enhance your look. They change your posture make you feel taller and more confident. But do you have a love hate relationship when it comes to your shoes?
You love the look of that killer pair of heels you bought, but hate the pain they inflict on your feet. Throbbing soles, stinging heels. Not to mention your aching back! At some point you really do need comfort, if you are going to make it through the day without breaking down and ending up bear footed. It’s just not a good look.

The first thing is to make sure you are wearing the right size. Incredibly some of us are wearing shoes that are too small. A little more room in your shoe can make a difference when it comes to comfort.
Try a style with more coverage on the top of your foot. It will actually help with your balance and you will be able to stay on your feet longer.
Avoid thin soled shoes. They cause pressure on the sole of your foot, not to mention the throbbing pain.
