[How to be a girl filter] I can't do high heels. Sadface.
This is such a pathetic question! But I have never been able to wear high heels.
I do a lot of walking (no car) and am in trainers 90% of the time.
I have weird feet - have never seen a chiropodist, but basically I need some sort of padding underneath the arch of my foot because if I don't it really hurts, even if I'm wearing flats.
When I'm in high heels, the balls of my feet really hurt. Like, they feel like they are on fire
. I also don't feel steady in heels, like I'm going to twist my ankle any second. If they are courts, I invariably get the whole rubbing/blistering at the back of my foot too. It's not pretty.
The thing is I really love high heels and I feel sad that my silly feet seem to hate wearing them.
So is there such a thing as a comfortable high heel? How does one transition from wearing flats/low block heels all the time to wearing high heels? Is there any way I can mitigate the pain of breaking in new shoes? Are there accessories you can buy to make it less painful?
(I've seen this question
, which is helpful but doesn't really address the comfort angle)
