How to walk in high heels without breaking your neck
I don't know about you but I love to wear heels. They are fun, dress up any look and make your legs look great. The only problem is walking in them. I never understood why some girls can walk in six inch stilettos like a pro while I was still stumbling in three inch wedges. Well I wanted to know the method to the madness. So I have been asking the pros, reading , and youtubing to find out. I figured it out! There is a proper way to walk in heels. This way makes it ten times less painful and I can now stand to be in my favorite heels for more than five minutes. In fact now I can actually stand being those awesome stilettos I mentioned for a few hours at a time.
The big secret
You know I actually think I remember hearing this in a movie once but it either didn't register or I just wasn't paying attention or something. When you go to take a step you want to put your foot down heel to toe. I did not know this and always put my whole foot down at once. If you put your whole foot down at once you look a bit silly. If you try to walk toe to heel you are likely to fall over because this will totally mess up your balance. So this is the biggest secret to walking in heels it is all in how you step. This seems to be the most important but there is more.
Alright so now you have that part down the next thing to remember is posture. You want to make sure you are standing up straight. You may feel like you want to hunch over but this will mess up your balance. Good posture is always a good thing to have that way you don't hurt your back and in this case help you from injuring any other part of your body in a fall.
One foot in front of the other
Putting one foot in front of the other is another really good trick I learned. You can practice this by walking in a straight line. I don't know why exactly this works but it does. Another really cool benefit from walking this way is that it gives you that hip sway thing that always grabs guys attention. If you need an example run way models do this kind of a strut. I wouldn't suggest walking around like you are on the cat walk all the time. It is just to get the basic idea. Once you get it down you can personalize it and tone it down.
The size of the strides you take can make a difference too. It is easier to take small steps. This takes getting around a little longer but hey you don't end up falling and you get to wear those heels you love. Taking smaller steps helps you stay grounded and keep balanced.
Practice is the key really. I didn't like hearing this because I am always in a hurry trying to do things the quickest way possible. I found it to be true though. It takes some time to get it down and trying to practice in a comfortable pair of heels first helps a lot. Once you are able to walk well in the comfy heels you can graduate to a more challenging pair. So as much I would like to tell you you can just skip I can't. Practice is really important.
Okay a little warning about stairs. You don't want to walk heel to toe up or down the stairs. You can either walk toe to heel or put your whole foot down at once. Walking heel to toe on the stairs can be dangerous. You might miss step and end up falling down the stairs because you were trying to put all your weight on your heel. I choose putting my whole foot down at once. This way I stay more grounded.
