“How can you walk in these?” I hear this question many times I am walking in high heels. I love heels and I find them comfortable. I have a single pair of low heels because I’m always drawn to 3″-4″ heels and I end up buying them.
Even thought they are so popular, I don’t have any pair of flats. I bought two pairs a couple of years ago and I hated them. They made me a lot of blisters and I felt they were going to fall off my feet if I walked faster. I have to admit I told hubby I can’t understand how women can walk in these.
From my experience, I can easily say that walking in high heels is easy, as long as the shoes are comfortable. Sometimes high heels can be more comfortable than low heels, it depends on the position of the foot. With some practice anybody can spend hours on heels.
I learned how to walk in high heels as a teenager. I studied in Romania and we didn’t have to wear school uniforms. Our teachers were letting us find our style and were allowing us to express ourselves. All of us were treated as young adults, so it didn’t matter if we were in heels or not and most of us were in heels. The same rules applied to makeup.
I have a curved spine. For years it wasn’t an issue, until I gained weight and the chronic pains started. I could wear one – one and a half inch heels. Flats weren’t an option for me back then either. After loosing weight, I was able to go back to the beautiful high heels I always loved.
Now I wear heels every time I’m going with work somewhere, even if it’s a 10+ hours day in London or a 8+ hours day at a trade fair. I will also wear high heels when I’m going out, unless I take the dog or I know I’ll end up in a forest. Although, it happened to go on a short walk in the forest on heels because hubby wanted to show me a beautiful place he saw while walking the dog.
Do you wear high heels often? I would like to hear your thoughts.
