How to wear high heels without the pain - Why George The Label is working towards a pain free future!

There is NOTHING worse than being out with feet throbbing from the pain of your high heels. Your entire night is ruined when all you can think about is the pain. 

So what is the solution and does it even exist? Is it possible to wear sexy sky high stilettos without the pain? Turns out the answer is quite simple! 

Here are 5 tips to look fabulous sans pain; 

1. Make sure you are wearing the correct shoe size

You may be a size 38 in an open toe sandal, but you may actually be a 39 in a closed toe pointed pump. You will be absolutely shocked at the difference buying the correct shoe size can make. If you are confused about which size to buy in a particular style, contact us through any of our channels and let us know about your foot. Do you often have pain in a certain style of shoe and not another? Do you find your shoes are too tight or too wobbly/ unstable? We can help by assessing your situation and providing you with custom tips and advice. 

 

2. Know your foot type

Go out and get expert advice on your foot type. Are your feet flat, very arched, wide, narrow or anything else you didn't even know existed? Your foot type may tell you a lot about why you are experience pain. A podiatrist may assess your feet and recommend remedies. 

 

3. Going to be standing all day? opt for a thicker heel

Stilettos are amazing and ultra sexy but can really take the toll on your body if you are standing for prolonged periods of time. if you are not used to wearing stilettos you are bound to experience discomfort if you are standing in one spot, not moving around. Make a conscious decision based on the event you are attending as to which type of heel to wear. A thicker heel may be better for work if you are moving around a lot. 

 

4. Avoid thin, un-padded soles 

Really thin soles are bound to result in pain. Its the equivalent of walking barefoot. A rubbery material on the sole will absorb the pressure. All of our shoes are equipped with a thick, padded inner sole which mimics the effect of a pillow. Our objective is to make our stilettos comfortable and we will keep working towards innovative ways of achieving this. 

 

5, Try shoes which offer upper support 

Sometimes high-heeled boots are actually something you can wear all day and they don’t bother your feet as much. In the summer, you can try something with an ankle strap or a big wide strap across the top. If you’re prone to blisters and friction, you might want to try that style, something that covers more of the top of your foot. Try spraying your feet with deodorant in the summer prior to putting on your shoes to minimise sweating and hence blisters!
