My first thought was some pain meds before donning the heels — is that too drastic?  I’ve also heard great things about foot petals, and plan on looking into them myself — saw some for sale at Nordstrom.  Interested to hear what other bees/readers have to say about this!

bruschetta pain meds before heels is not to drastic. lol. I do it all the time.  Derby is right around the corner and I will be in heels all day. So I will be taking advil prior.

I also cushion very well. I use any type of pads that I can find. It doesn’t heep my feet from hurting but I feel it does delay it for a bit.

I’m an advocate of "Tip Toes" and "Heavenly Healz" from Foot Petals.  They help so much that I wish shoe desingers would just include them in their designs!

Here’s a great article on finding the right type of Foot Petals products for the shoes you have.  It really depends on if you have open toe or closed toe and what part of your feet hurts the most.

I also use Foot Petals. I prefer them to Dr. Scholl’s.

Maybe your shoes are too tight. Do you have wide feet? Also, I hate to say it but spending more money on a quality shoe with lots of built in padding and non-synthetic materials does make a difference!

I also find that gel pads are good for preventing ball of the foot pain.

This is just something I’m throwing out there, but apparently a lot of women get botox injected into their feet so that they can wear heels without the pain on the balls of their feet.  I know it’s a bit extreme and I wouldn’t do it, but if you’re planning on wearing high heels all day, you may want to look into it.
