How To Walk In Heels - Sexy Heels For Sexy Legs

Updated on August 30, 2011

Wearing Sexy Heels

Everyone knows that heels are sexy, they make legs looks longer and more defined, but how to walk in heels? Well that takes a bit of practice. It isn't sexy if you're in your heels and stumbling around grabbing onto things (or people!) to balance yourself. In this case you probably look drunk!

I spent years wearing heels day in day out, only taking them off when it was time for bed. I did some ridiculous things in my heels like running (fast) for buses and climbing a ladder in my office when I needed supplies from a high shelf. I also spent way too many hours standing in music venues that were sloped for viewing. Imagine the balls of your feet being on fire and you might have an idea of just how bad that hurt!

So after years of feet abuse, I put my heels back into their boxes and left them untouched in the closet for a couple of years. Now they're gradually being worn again, but it took a while to get used to walking in heels after such a long break. Here's my advice for someone starting out wearing heels, or someone like me who needed a bit of a revisit to get used to them again.

Practising How To Walk In Heels

When I started wearing heels again it was just at home to be on the safe side. I had the advantage of many years worth of experience wearing heels so it wasn't too hard for me to get back used to them, but I wouldn't have worn them outside at first. If you're someone who isn't familiar with wearing heels then definitely practice at home first, preferably on flat carpet.

I found that a great way to get used to standing in heels for long periods of time was to wear them when I was ironing. You really notice your posture and can correct it so you stand straighter if need be. That's another reason why I love wearing heels, it really makes you stand better because you need to be balanced. Putting on a pair of heels can instantly make you feel leaner and longer, plus the sexy walking that goes hand in hand with wearing high heels is a bonus!

A Useful Product To Help You Walk In Heels

I've had many foot ailments due to wearing heels, but the worst was blisters on the balls of my feet. This happens when the shoe slips as you walk and is very, very painful. It's a nightmare when this happens as you really can't walk barefoot, let alone in shoes after this has happened. As putting your feet up for a few days is the only way to save on pain, I'd highly recommend precaution. Who has 4 days where they can just sit with their feet up?

That's where 'party feet' come in useful. They're little gel half soles that fit into the flat bit of the shoe to stop slipping. I wish that I'd discovered this product way before I actually did because they really help to stop any soreness on the balls of the feet. Not only do they stop slipping, they also cushion that part of the foot, so when you walk you have a bit of padding between the shoes and your feet. If you want to know how to walk sexy, I'd definitely recommend these!

How To Walk In Heels

  • It's all about balance, once you're used to standing still in heels, then you should find it easier to walk in them. As I mentioned, ironing is a great way to get used to standing in heels, but if you don't iron, then wear them while brushing your teeth, or washing up. You'll be adding a little glamour to boring tasks!
  • Once you're comfortable standing, wear your heels while you're doing stuff around the house, no real need to walk up and down in a straight line to learn how to walk in heels. You won't be doing that when you wear them to work, or for a night out. Get used to wearing them in familiar instances like going up and down stairs and lifting and carrying stuff.
  • If you wear heels around the house and do things as normal, you'll be walking in heels outside like a pro in no time!
  • Remember to keep legs close and toes out front for the best sexy heel walk.

How To Walk In High Heels

The Stiletto

The Stiletto is a different breed of heel and my personal heel of choice. The Stiletto has a spike heel and it takes more balance to walk in this kind than any other. You're basically putting all of your weight onto the ball of the foot with this style as the heel is so thin.

To me, there are heels and there are heels, and the Stiletto is the sexiest of them all. It may take a bit longer to get the hang of walking in Stilettos, but when you do I guarantee that you will feel extremely sexy and pleased with yourself. You'll probably get a lot of attention too as there's no sexy walk like a stiletto walk!

      Definitely get a pair of gel pads for your heels, they make so much difference. You'll be strutting your stuff in no time!

      Sorry for the late reply Kat. Glad that you found my advice on wearing heels useful. I've been slacking and haven't worn any for a while. I need to revist my own advice!

      Hope you've nailed walking in heels :)

      I usually only break out my heels around the holidays. Yesterday, I wore a pair. The whole time I was thinking, "I've got to be doing this wrong. There must be a technique I've never learned." I'm so glad I found this article. Bookmarked for study and practice.

      Practice, that's key. Oh and party feet are a must, I went out in heels without them inside this week and the ball of my foot was on fire all night.

      I personally prefer flat sandals than high heels because I don't know how to walk in heels,it gives my calves such pain and flat sandals are much more comfortable. But with occasions that needed me to wear one, I do wish I know how to strut it down aisle using heels.

      This is a good advice, thanks for sharing!

      I teach deportment & grooming, Catwalk and these tips are great. I too after many years of being a heel wearer have now had to put the heels aside. But when they do come out party feet are a must, I have many form of these due to the style of heel. Stilettos are my favorite too and some are impossible to wear in areas such as downhill so the flats in your bag yes a must. Always heel to toe and walk from the hips not the knees.

      Stilleto heels do not put more wieght on the ball of your foot. They are definitely harder to balance in, but that's because the all the weight at the heel of the shoe is placed in a tiny area unlike a chunky heel where there is a larger surface area for the weight to be distributed. Try standing a pencil on it's eraser compared to a paper towel roll as an example. The weight distribution to the ball of the foot and heel, however, is the same whether it's a chunky or spike heel. Regardless, I'll be in my heels for every occasion anyway!!!

      I have never been able to get it right. But seriously, I don't know how you ladies put up with that. My feet would not be able to take it!
