How do you walk with high heels without loosing your balance? What is your secret?
After twisting my foot, spraining my ankles and seeing stars ( I really saw them!), and falling in many situations, I finally learned a valuable lesson at the bottom of a steep flight of stairs. My baby landed at the bottom before I came tumbling after. I learnned from that final experience the proper way to walk with heels: carry them in your hands and sashay all over the place! The end.
I can see this happening to me! I would love to wear those high-high heels but have to resort to the lower now. I carry a pair of flat in case I need to switch them.
well I must say that a proper way of standing with your shoulders back and back straight along with some strong legs, is how I do it!
Well, if I learned anything from the movie "Dirty Dancing" it is that you walk on your toes, not on the heels. This means you need some serious calf muscles to pull it off, which is why women who wear heels all the time don't have a problem with it, they've built all the correct muscles already. This is also why it's painful and a hassle to learn to wear heels.
Do calf exercises, stand on the bottom step of a flight of stairs balance with the front half of your feet on the steps and your heels hanging off. Use your calf muscles to sort of bounce up and down.
Or just walk around on your toes when you're wearing other shoes, this will build the muscles too.
You'll be walking comfortably in heels in no time.
Taking smaller steps and walking in a gentle heel, ball, toe step is the most perfect way to do it. Regardless of how fast or slow I walk, the evenly spaced stride makes me confident to walk smoothly and gracefully. The lurch will not throw you off balance. I'm a high-heels lover and so loved your question, thank you Vellur.

No. I seem to have very weak ankles. Have broken an ankle bone at least once, torn ligaments and had bad sprains-- even when wearing sensible shoes. At this point in my life, I wouldn't dare.
