The Secret to Wearing High Heels Without Any Pain

Kat Collings

Despite the reigning popularity of sneakers and flats, high heels will always be around. And on occasions that do call for heels, you might as well maximize the comfort level in any way that you can. So if you’ve ever hobbled home after a long day or night in heels, this tip is for you. Tape your third and fourth toes (counting from the big toe) together—we recommend nude medical 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’s a nerve that splits between those two toes, which causes pain when pressure is put upon it (aka when you wear heels). The tape removes strain on the nerve, allowing you to dance the night away.

Go ahead and pick up a roll of tape (at $4, why not?), and scroll on to shop the heels you can now wear pain-free.
