High Heel Damage & How To Reverse It

High heel damage is a very real thing, whether you’re wearing sky-high stilettos or a small wedge. Our feet weren’t meant to walk on an incline or be high in the sky!

This infographic that we found on Fix highlights some of the many perils associated with prolonged use.

When you go shoe shopping, it’s important to know the right terms. This infographic from Buzzfeed explains all the various styles and be able to impress the salesperson! Now, let’s look at the important things you need to consider.

Get The Perfect Fit. The best way to make sure your feet stay cozy in your shoes? Buy a pair that fits your foot properly. Be sure to shop for your shoes later on in the day, since that tends to be when your feet swell up a little. Be sure to not just try on the shoe either, but to give it a good walk down the store aisle and stretch and flex your toes inside it. Be sure it’s not too big either! A too-big shoe will slide up and down, causing the friction on your foot that leads to painful blisters.

Stretch Knees To Toes When you get home and fling your heels off, take just five minutes to stretch out your legs and feet. Stretch and flex your toes, make mini circles by turning your feet from your ankles, and do some stretches for your calves, shins, and hamstrings.

Treat Your Feet Although feet can often get ignored, it’s important to take at least basic care of them. Invest in a good foot file and slough off dead skin after your shower. Apply a moisturizer to your feet once or twice per day, and be sure to keep your toenails neat. This way you’ll prevent the friction and pressure that can come from having dry skin or overgrown nails inside your shoes.

Switch Up Your Heels If you absolutely must wear heels every day, try to wear ones that are under 2 inches high. These are a lot less likely to cause painful stress fractures and toe issues like hammertoe. You can still rock those stilettos sometimes, but try to save them for going out or special occasions. Be sure to check out the infographic above from The New Professional that shows you how to wear your shoes for the best look.
