Go Ask Gab: Making High Heels Comfortable

April 27, 2010 at 11:57 am , by

I’ve gotten really lazy lately and worn flats almost exclusively. I’ve decided to try to reintroduce my heels into my wardrobe but OUCH, they hurt—even more than they used to. Do I just have to suck it up or is there anything I can do to help make them more comfy? The ouch-factor has me running back to my flats, big-time! – Amanda

Well there are several ways to attack this problem. Here are my suggestions:

* Don’t jump feet-first into 4-inch heels (in fact, you shouldn’t jump in 4-inch heels at all—ha!). Try to first ease into heel that’s around 2.5 to 3 inches. J.Crew always has some stylish sensible heels

* Pick a shoe with a thicker stacked heel. It’s studier, thus easier to walk in. These Banana Republic pumps will keep you from wobbling.

* Shoes with a platform are also more comfortable and give you added height. Love these Ann Taylor platform sandals.

* Wedges also tend to be more supportive and easier to walk in. LOFT’s cross strap wedges seem like a great option.

* Try a shoes with hidden support technology. Kenneth Cole and Cole Haan both offer shoes with extra comfort.

* Add an insert for more added comfort: My favorite brands are Dr. Scholl’s, Apara and Foot Petals.
