Entity shares four tips to walk in heels and look poised, elegant and confident while you do!

Whether you fell in love with the perfect pair of shoes for a special occasion or just want to feel more confident wearing pumps at work, try these four tips to learn how ooze elegance and poise while walking in high heels.

1 WORK YOUR WAY UP TO #WORKING IT

If you purchased a pair of sky-high, five inch Louboutins for a big gala event but don’t normally wear heels, it’s time to take a step back. You must learn to walk before you can strut; that’s a basic rule for any kind of growth. Practice with “starter shoes,” such as two inch kitten heels or small wedges before working your way up to your dream pair of tall, skinny stilettos. If you’re a true beginner, look for shoes with a short and chunky heel; these will be the easiest to walk but still offer plenty of glam.

Once you find the perfect high heels, master the basics of your runway walk: step with the heel first, and then put your toe down. Keep your shoulders back, and stand tall (you are wearing high heels, after all).

2 START WITH BABY STEPS

High heels shorten your stride and change your center of gravity, which might make you feel off-balance as you learn how to walk in heels. So slow down, sister – there’s no rush. Take petite, deliberate steps to stay in control. Who What Wear suggests, “It’s best to take your time in heels. Besides, walking slowly gives off an air of confidence.”

Keep in mind you may have to take more steps than usual to cover the same distance in heels – not ideal for a rushed morning commute. If you walk several blocks from the subway to your office, bring a pair of polished ballet flats as your “commuter shoes,” and then slip into your power pumps once you arrive at the office. Beauty and practicality!

3 FIT MATTERS

If your high heels don’t fit snugly and comfortably, get ready for wobbly steps and painful blisters. For a realistic fitting, NY Mag recommends trying new shoes on in the middle of the afternoon, when your feet are likely to be a bit swollen.

Certain materials, such as authentic leather, will stretch over time and mold to your feet for a supple, custom fit that feels like butter. Otherwise, your local shoe repair person can help file or stretch your favorite pumps to perfection.

For a DIY hack to fix your too-tight heels, fill a leak-proof plastic bag with water and place it in your shoes. Then, pop the pumps in the freezer. The water will expand as it freezes, stretching your shoes slightly. Alternatively, if you find your high heels are a bit too loose in certain areas, you can purchase inserts and insoles to adjust the fit.

4 OUTSMART SLIPS AND FALLS

Take precautions to avoid slipping before you stride into a waxed marble lobby wearing your elegant, smooth-soled high heels. Runway diva extraordinaire, Miss J. Alexander recommends scratching the bottom of your shoes with sandpaper to gain more traction. If you do start to teeter, arch your foot to increase the pressure on the sides of your shoes. This gives you better stability so you can regain your balance.

With a little practice, you will not only look elegant, but also confident as you strut in heels. Keep your head held high and your heels higher.

  • ecco, finalmente funziona tutto e posso ribaltarmi in santa pacezagu über alles sempre e comunque ma direi che tra tutte c'è una bella gara a far peggio

  • Thanks for spending time on the computer (writing) so others don’t have to.

  • My first venture into NG 2.0 – truly awesome !!!Mohabbatein – pretty much equal payoff for SRK and Bachchan. SRK probably got the better dialogues and more of them…..but Bachchan’s silences and look was awesome. The movie itself wasn’t that bad, I definitely prefer Aditya to K-Jo thats for sure.

  • Thinking like that shows an expert’s touch

  • Perhaps the fabrics that won’t come off the glue without a fight are meant to be used in wall hangings, where it won’t matter. Actually, the paper and glue is like a stabilizer. Try it the way it is in quilts that won’t be washed and worn.

  • I love that metaphor. It describes your book and blog perfectly. I totally buy it.Sadly, I can not watch a movie at home without falling asleep. Partially because they come at the end of a long, exhausting week. Partially because of the glass of wine meant to help me forget that long and exhausting week.

  • Wow! Great to find a post knocking my socks off!

  • I will be putting this dazzling insight to good use in no time.

  • I agree with the author’s opinion. There are so many internet tools in this modern society. When I need some information, I usually use the computer to look for it. We can type what we need and the internet will soon pop up much information we need. This is the fastest way to get the information, we rely on it deeply. But we lose our reading ability. I think we should not always get the information on the internet, we get those thing without thinking. We can go to the library and search it by ourselves, it can help us to improve our reading ability.

  • we prefer to honor many other internet web sites around the net, even though they aren’t linked to us, by linking to them. Below are some webpages worth checking out

  • scrive:Si, hai ragione. Sto pensando qualcosa in questa direzione ma sono lento nella produzione.. In realtà ho delle idee un po’ diverse da quello che si legge nei soliti libri o presentazioni. Quando capiterà l’occasione te ne parlo.Per il Cloud hai ragione, qualche post l’ho fatto, ma è uno dei temi che mi proponevo di affrontare in modo un po’ piu’ sistematico. Anche se non so quanto soddisferà i tuoi appetiti…. Voglio partire dalle basi, che mi sembrano spesso un po’ oscure e, a volte, confuse ad arte.

  • I enjoy both looks on others, but I wouldn’t consider myself a veteran. I’m still rather new, but I feel fashion latex suits me better. My excitement and love grows with each piece added to my collection. I’m happy that I started out light. I’ve enjoyed myself wearing it and that’s really all that matters. So, I have to agree. Do what works for you and forget about the rest. By the way, you will look great in whatever you wear. I can’t wait to see you at FF. -xo

  • 4 euros/kg of bananas is expensive even for Finland. In normal shops it’s usually 1,19 or 1,99 e/kg. That market isn’t the cheapest place to buy fruits for sure Have you visited Nuuksio or Heureka during your trip?

  • I thought finding this would be so arduous but it’s a breeze!

  • Now I’m like, well duh! Truly thankful for your help.

  • What i don’t realize is in fact how you’re no longer truly considerably a lot more smartly-liked than you could be right now. That you are very intelligent. You realize thus significantly on the subject of this matter, produced me for my part envision it from so numerous various angles. Its like men and women are not involved unless it’s something to do with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs good. Always preserve it up!

  • I am definitely approving of LB's button flower clip, you are right. Liking the first outfit a lot but I'm thinking a bit more red would make it perfect – so Lucy's red jacket or Vix's suggestion of a red beret or even a big red F-O bow would be the way forward methinks. xx

  • That’s a genuinely impressive answer.

  • Chris Redfield is my favorite RE character. Uhh hello who manhandled & killed Wesker? Ya it was Chris not that pretty boy Leon. Chris owens the series & i bet will come up big in RE6.

  • A very valid point, but if you’ve followed this site for any time you will notice we are not “focused” on any candidate really except for Romney. Makes no sense for us to try and “take down” candidates who haven’t even announced yet. Our comments above were merely in response to the Palin supporter who commented, and Jeff post can only relate info the was uses in the poll, and Daniels was not included in it.I do concur with you that Daniels is the darkhorse to keep the closest eye on.

  • I see,thanks for link to the articles, I have read some of them. If Cina really wants to scale up renewables, I think prices will go up… how much, that will have to be seen,regards,Alex

  • I samma blogg som exemplet med busschauffören hittade jag "gå inte omkring bakom en annan rygg", vilket i alla fall för mig är en konstig konstruktion. Typ två promille av alla träffar på "bakom * rygg" verkade vara "bakom en rygg" på google.Sen är väl frågan om man säger så…

  • It’s a pleasure to find someone who can think so clearly

  • Thanks for contributing. It’s helped me understand the issues.

  •  ma nooo dai, ma come fai a mettere così in alto un film come har har ci hai creduto che ti scrivessi una cosa simile eh.

  • Which came first, the problem or the solution? Luckily it doesn’t matter.

  • Today I am going to make one that has way less spinach (only cause I don't have that much) and going to add frozen berries!You should def give it a try, cause I didn't even taste the spinach in the second one. Although I do believe that is only because I didn't have to chew any of it.

  • Didn’t Rutgers Prep just beat North Hunterdon by 8 or 10 points? I am trying to understand why that had no impact whatsover on the rankings, because NH is still number 2 in the rankings. I expected Somerville or even Voorhees at number 2, What gives?

  • Posts like this make the internet such a treasure trove
