How to make high heels comfortable

High heels come in many styles and designs from platforms and wedges to stilettos and slingbacks. If you have wide feet, then stilettos are not for you as they squeeze the toes which can make this type of footwear rather painful to wear.

Instead, choose high heels with a platform and a squared or wider toe cap with enough room to wiggle. Your feet will thank you for it and it is better for walking or moving about.

Open, square or round toe high heels are also more comfortable than pointy shoes. Depending on how often you will be walking or standing, getting shoes in these shapes are going to help you get through the day without killing your feet.

You can also get full shoe insoles or arch supporters for maximum comfort. Note that full insoles can make shoes tighter, hence, you should consider getting a size bigger to make sure shoes stay comfy.
