The Christmas party season is upon us, and that usually means numerous opportunities to throw on your glad rags and those ridiculously impractical killer heels, that look so amazing- but you want to avoid the pain they cause.
Whether you are a lover of glamorous high heels all year round or you save them for the Christmas Party Season, any tips to get through the night without too much pain, or being the barefoot party girl, have got to be worth knowing.
Here are our top tips to keep you comfortable and looking fabulous all night long:
Make Sure the Shoe Fits
Go for Comfort
Cushion the Balls of your Feet
So, you have tried to make your high heels as comfy as possible to avoid the pain, now it is time to concentrate on your posture. It is important that you keep your body weight centred by tightening your abs, and tucking your tail bone under. This will bring your centre of gravity back to the mid line and take the pressure of the joints of your toes. And you know what that means…less achy feet!
Practice walking in your shoes before the big night out too. Remember to place your heel down first, like models on the catwalks. This will help to even your weight out across your full foot.
After the Party
Once you have experienced the blissful feeling of kicking off your shoes, slip your feet into a peppermint soak. Follow up by massaging in a hydrating balm and slipping on some cosy socks, to help with the hydration of course, before sliding into bed.
That should recharge your feet ready to party again tomorrow. Oh, and if all else fails carry a pair of comfortable shoes or flip flops in your hand bag and ditch the heels when the going get too tough. Well, a girl has got to survive the party season somehow and there is certainly more than just her feet to think about.
