I definitely think you can train yourself to walk and stand more comfortably in high heels–just wear them around the house whenever you can, in increasing intervals of time.  Fiance thinks I’m crazy cause I do laundry in my high high heels sometimes, but better that than try to go out on the town and wind up barefoot halfway through dinner!

I like heels that are HIGH. Like 5 inches. I have long gangly legs too, but wear them around the house, and you will BE FINE. I used to wobble around, especially up the stairs, but then going to other peoples weddings with them, or a bar, i can MOVE in them ahha. quite well.

@KristenGotMarried: Do you have some lower heels? Start wearing some 2″ heels around the house for everything. Give yourself a little while to adjust to them. Once you’re totally comfortable in the lower heels, work your way up. Go to a pair of 3″ and repeat. Once you’re comfy in them go to your wedding shoes. Doing it gradually will help with the soreness and cramping. I’d also look into some of the ball of foot gel pads that Dr. Scholls has. Unfortunately, 4″+ heels will never really be comfortable, but you can definitely get to a point where they’re more than bearable. ๐Ÿ™‚

yup! I wear superhigh (5″ platform pumps, usually) every day for work, but college-age me was never ever able to wear anything higher than an inch! For me, I just started wearing 3″ or 4″ when I went out to slowly “train” myself into an all-day wear – it totally works. Not in the smallest part because it helps you gradually lose the ability to actually feel your feet. ๐Ÿ™‚ No, but really, it helps, try it!

And with all this discussion, now I’m curious – what shoes are they? post a pic – i heart shoe pics and need inspiration, I haven’t bought mine yet!

I highly recommend some kind of gel cushion for inside the shoe as well! I know Dr. Scholl’s makes them, I’ve used the ones from Aldo and they help a lot!

Those shoes are so hot!

Some kind of cushion at the bottom may be neccessary..

Good luck with your training regime!

@KristenGotMarried: that is a good idea to train. it looks super bad if a girl “wobbles” in her heels.

I know this sounds weird, but I heard some girls get botox on the balls of their feet (where the pain would be the worst in heels). it supposedly works really well! I’m not going to do that, but I hear it’s pretty common in some places.
