How to walk in high heels: a guide
Do not set yourself a goal that is too high when first learning how to walk in high heels. Start with medium size heels (3 to 5 cm is ideal). Walk around your home in high heels to train yourself, first of all with short trousers so that your clothes do not interfere, then jeans or a tight- fitting skirt. The idea is to walk naturally in your high heels (placing your heel first and then gently placing your forefoot), keep your back straight and your head held high. You are then ready to use obstacles to simulate stepping on and off a curb. To learn how to walk with high heels outside the home, start by wearing them for short periods of time. Wear your high heels to a restaurant or to the cinema with friends, as this way you spend most of the night sitting. However, wear flat shoes instead of heels for driving, as it will be safer!
After a few outings in high heels, you'll feel more stable, although it is important to train yourself to walk with each new pair.
