    A Heel’s Best Friends

    If only every day was casual Friday and you could wear flats and sneakers.  Sadly, most nine-to-five’s require you to put on your big girl pants and strap on some heels.  To make your work day a little less painful, we’ve compiled some tips and accessories you can buy to keep your feet feeling fine.

    Inserts & Moleskin

    Moleskin pads and shoe inserts should be every working lady’s best friend (next to things like email, your phone, and the snack machine, obviously).  They can help prevent painful blisters from forming, the inevitable ball-of-you-foot pain, and many other common foot ailments common in women who wear high heels.  Find the right supportive inserts to keep your heels comfortable (even if you have to stay late)!

    No-Show Socks

    If you’re wearing a classic pump or a slightly more covered shoe, you may be able to get away with wearing no-show socks.  These tiny socks cover the bottom of your feet, the back of your heels, and your toes so they’re invisible when wearing most shoes.  Plus, no more smelly heels!  Socks will absorb your sweat, also reducing the chance of friction blisters.

    Switch Up the Heel

    Sometimes the pain is stemming not from blisters or rubbing, but from the actual type of shoe you’re wearing.  Thin-heeled shoes, while fashionable, generally hurt more than shoes with thicker heels or wedge shoes.  If your office allows it, try purchasing a pair of wedges or trendier thick heeled pumps.  You can look just as chic and professional as you would in your go-to office pumps, but your feet will be thanking you at the end of the day!

    Covered Shoes

    While this might not be applicable for all offices, but most will let you wear some type of heeled boot as long as you’re not trying to walk into the office in straight-up motorcycle boots.  The benefit of wearing a covered shoe like a heeled boot is that it keeps your foot more steady in the shoe, so there’s less chance of slippage and friction.

    Heel Height

    Sometimes the best solution is to just wear a lower heel.  You don’t need to walk around the office in 4 inch heels when there are some midi and kitten heels that are just as stylish.  Wearing lower heels reduced the pressure you put on the balls of your feet and more evenly distributes your weight.  You still get some of the leg flattering and height boosting benefits of wearing heels, but you don’t have the discomfort that the higher heels bring.

    Antiperspirant Spray

    This may sound weird, but antiperspirant sprayed in your heels before heading out for the day can really help with blisters and rubbing.  Moist skin due to sweat rubs and chaffs against the material of your heels, but if you spray a layer of antiperspirant on your foot, it forms a layer that can protect your feet while stopping the sweat from even forming.  Voila!  No more blisters!

    Whether you try all these tips or just some is up to you.  While “pain is beauty” may be some women’s motto’s when it comes to wearing heels, it doesn’t have to be yours.  You can still look professional and stylish at work without having to suffer for your shoes.

    Budget Finds – Gold Strap Block Heels

    gold strap sandals

    As I get older, I find myself gravitating more & more towards comfortable block heels.  They are practical while offering both the height and chic style.  These Gold Strap Block Heels add just the right amount of shine to any outfit.  Pair it with ankle pants, midi skirts or with skinny jeans on Casual Fridays.

    Tip:  Dorothy Perkins shoe sizes tend to run large from my personal experience.  Consider ordering a size down.
