"looking good"? Specially heels. Most women will squeeze their feet in a pair of shoes that is a size too small, or that is poorly constructed...simply because of the visual aesthetics.
- I love a pair of gel inserts from Aldo, Dr. Scholls, or even just your local drugstore i.e. CVS, Walgreen or Rite Aid because they work wonderfully in cushioning my feet making them more comfortable to wear. They also have sticky pads that you can apply to just the balls of your shoes, the heels, your individual toes and it's awesome because no lie I "pimp" out my shoes a la "pimp my ride" so that it feels like I'm walking on a cloud.
- To avoid, it might be wise to avoid stiletto or heels with a super skinny heel because I just find it hard to believe that it's beneficial to balance all of my weight on a heel so skinny for a long period of time. I opt for wedges or chunkier heels and thankfully with the advent of social media especially, designers from the very expensive to the more frugal side advertise tons of cute and still fashionable styles that don't take away from my "sexy" so to speak.
- If you find yourself wearing a particular pair of even your FAVORITE pair of heels or even shoes that constantly makes your feet uncomfortable, it might be the time to look up your local goodwill, organize a clothes swap, and donate these shoes to a new home. If you ca't bear to part with your beloved heels, then consider making pretty cases for your heels to keep them on display or just keep them for sentimental value, but there's no sense in wearing heels that kill your feet because the health of your feet is just as essential to your health as any other part of your body!
