walking in heels
Like others I suggest you work your way up, don't put a pair of 4" thin stilettos on and expect to be able to walk around as you normally do. Start with a lower heel and a heel than is wider so you gain confidence and to help your foot adjust, remember a high heel has a big effect on the arch of your foot. Walk around in the house to start with and build up the time you wear them. Also remember walking on the pavement is much harder on the foot that wearing shoes inside.
Also try to avoid cheap shoes, (as often they are poorly balanced, and the heels are not strong enough) don't go to much by your normal shoes size, it is the fit that is important, make sure enough room for your toes and that your heel is held in place so the foot does not slip around. Remember they should be slightly tight to start with as most shoes will stretch a bit to the shape of your foot with wear. Other tips - A small platform sole can also provide a cushion so you don't get that burning feeling on the ball of your foot, and a pair of boots is quite a good idea as they support your ankle more
when starting out in heels.
Finally, if you can afford it (save up) treat yourself to at least one pair of heels by a proper designer such as Mannolo Blahnik - you will notice the difference in quality and how wearable they are straight away.
