Ladies! Auntie Oboshie Presents #5 Tips To Get Away With Staying In Heels Without Blisters
I’ll go for a pair of sneakers in a heartbeat, I don’t mind, wearing heels I must say appeal to my femininity. Auntie Oboshie, one in a few of Ghana’s most reliable fashion and lifestyle blogs, shares 5 tips on how to stay comfortable in heels.
There is always that point where the stress in the leg muscles overwhelms our outstanding calves and graceful steps in those heels to die for! Yeah, we never forget the extra pair of fashionable slippers or flats, but my brother’s words keep echoing in my head every time I reach out for them: “start chic, finish chic”. Auntie Oboshie has doubtlessly solved this problem.
Take a look:
TIP #1 – THE DEODORANT STICK TO THE RESCUE
Our deodorant sticks can help maximize the comfort of our heels. It’s helpful to use a deodorant stick on the buckle or strap of your heel. This reduces irritation caused by repetitive friction between the buckle and the skin of your feet in contact.
TIP #2 – SHOP FOR SHOES IN THE EVENING
Our feet are usually swollen at the end of the day. Shopping for heels in this state helps you know which shoes will pinch your toes when you wear them later.
This makes so much sense!
TIP #3 – TAPE YOUR TOES
This tip is definitely worth trying. Taping your second and third toes together (counting from the smallest toe) eases the pain. There is a nerve that splits between your third and fourth toe which causes pain in the balls of your feet. Stress on the nerve is reduced when the toes support each other.
TIP #4 – PREP YOUR LEG AND KNEE MUSCLES
Walking in heels is totally different from walking in flats. Pretend your feet are in heels and use your hips and legs to support your upper body while “cat walking”. Do this for a while to get your feet ready before putting on your heels.
TIP #5 – HEELS WITH BUCKLES & STRAPS
Adjustable straps and buckles give support to the feet, keeping it in place. This helps to avoid unnecessary rubbing that causes blisters and discomfort when walking in your heels.
