Hot Tips for Walking in Heels
Apparently high heels and happy feet are not an oxymoron, if only women hold themselves correctly while walking, or so says Victor Chu, a former shoe designer.
Clearly this man hasn't ever attempted the Sisters with Blisters Walk in heels.
Never fear, ladies! We've taken his theory to heart and have found some tips that will help keep your toes on your feet if you're planning on the doing the Walk in your heels.
|- Walk with a straight back - as if you were pulling a string from the top of your head.|
|- Clench your tummy muscles by sucking your belly button in toward your spine. This pulls your body weight back onto your heels (and gets in a good abdominal work-out, too).|
|- Steer away from pressure around the balls of your feet by walking heel to toe with a slightly exaggerated hip sway.|
|- Shorten your stride taking smaller steps alleviates the pressure when you hit the ground. And it helps you to avoid falling flat on your face.|
