Tips for Wearing High Heels Without Pain

Every girl loves to wear high heels, whether it is your day-to-day look, or for special occasions.  But often you are out on the town and your feet are throbbing.  Here are a few tips & products to make wearing high heels more bearable & let you strut in style!

High Heel Tip:

Tape your third and fourth toes (counting from the big toe) together.  Divine Style recommends nude medical tan tape for a low-profile look, but Scotch tape works in a pinch to alleviate pain in the ball of your foot. Sound crazy? Here’s the reasoning: there is a nerve that splits between those two toes, which causes pain when pressure is put upon it (a.k.a. when you wear heels). The tape removes strain on the nerve, allowing you to dance the night away.

High Heel Products:

Sole Serum, is a solution for your feet that relieves up to 2 hours of pain.  It’s made from natural ingredients plus power of lidocaine not only blocks the foot’s pain signals from reaching the brain, but also helps to reduce inflammation.

High Heel insoles, such as Dr. Scholl’s Dream Walk, keep your feet from slipping in your high heels which will help distribute weight more evenly versus putting the pressure on the ball of your foot.

Since heels distribute most of your weight onto the ball of your foott, that's where you're likely going to feel pain first. Offset it with a pair of thin, gel insoles”these keep your feet from slipping and aren't visible in even the strappiest of sandals.<br /><br /> Dr. Scholl's DreamWalk High Heel Insoles, $8, target.com.<br /><br />

A menthol-and-camphor spray, such as J.R. Watkins Pain Relieving Liniment Spray, will temporarily relieve any burning and pain, allowing you an extra hour or two of dancing.
