The Best At-Home Tricks to Walk in Heels Without Pain
Who What Wear is turning 10 this year! To celebrate our #WWW10 milestone, we’re bringing back WWW TV, with new style videos just for you.
We’ve all been there—dreading the entire day because you know you’ll be in pain for the majority of it thanks to your heels. Sure, they look great and elevate your outfit, but are they really worth it? Well, yes. In fact, the answer is always yes—especially when you can actually make your heels more comfortable at home before you even walk out the door. Our editorial director, Kat Collings, knows just the way to do it, using three items commonly found in your very own bathroom.
Keep scrolling to watch Kat show us how to make heels more comfortable. Plus, go a bit further to shop some of our favorite heels of the moment.
A layer of deodorant acts as a barrier between your foot and your shoe—it’s kind of like an invisible Band-Aid, which helps prevent blisters.
To alleviate pain in the ball of your foot, wrap a strip of medical tape between your third and fourth toes. There’s a nerve that splits between these two toes—and the tape will remove the strain on the nerve.
A sprinkling of baby powder soaks up any moisture, which helps keep your feet from slipping around in your heels. This helps eliminate friction, which then prevents blisters.
Will you test out these tricks? What’s your tip for making heels more comfortable? Let us know in the comments below.
