    I often wear high heels/stilettos when I go out but my feet literally KILL me after a couple of hours! I always end up taking them off at the end of the night. And yet everyone else thats wearing high heels seems to be fine, and having a good time dancing :confused: , whereas im always in complete agony!


    I think most girls can appreciate how hard it is to find dressy low heeled shoes, and lets face it high heels just look so sexy! Ive tried gel insoles and they help a bit but they always fall out of sandals. And im fairly used to wearing heels so maybe I should wear them more to get used to the pain?!

    Any advice appreciated!

    Thanks x

    I have no idea... maybe wear them round the house more often like you say to get used to them?

    Where do you get your shoes from? I think that depends too on how comfy they are, for example I personally cannot get shoes from New Look or DP because they kill my feet!

    Aswell, it might be that everyone elses feet are killing them too but they dont want to say anything!!

    Never wear heels all day, or even to 'get used to the pain'. It will make your feet worse and worse over the ages. Believe me. I think I have these calluses at the bottom of my feet after spending years of orchestra rehearsals and shopping trips in heels. Now I only wear them on the weekends b/c there's no school and it will be agony after 30 minutes.

    As for calluses under feet, I wear heels all the time and have them but my mum has them in the same places and she always wears flat shoes. Personally for me I think I'd have them regardless of my footwear because I walk a lot.

    Just wear them for longer.
    Keep them on in the house?

    If nothing changes after a week, then stop wearing them.

    coz some guys love girls in them.and some guys have a fetish for them,they make you look taller.they make your bum stick out which is an evolutionary sign that makes men think women are more fertile so basically men are attracted to you...

    Yeah I know that already, but why would you go though the pain just for that?

    But some many women has really bad feet because they wear heals (stilettos), given they may look sexy and all, but the pain on your feet, god, I'm glad I'm not a girl, with my feet I wouldn't be wearing high heals. (my feet hurt in comfortable trainers, I have bad feet, need an operation, hence why I think women are crazy putting themselves in so much pain just to look good, but that's just me, I don't mind if a girl is wearing them or not, makes no difference to me).

    That would be stupid wearing them to go to tesco's or any other supermarket, lol. OK fair enough the one off is ok. Flats are better for the feet, but since there seems to be something of a culture for wearing heals I'll just have to accept it.
    I like to walk around the house bear footed, as my feet are so bad that any form of shoe can hurt after a while, but that's because of my feet being messed up beyond belief.

    Gosh, I wore them all the time and got used to them, now I love them and they're so comfy

    Gotta get used to balancing and walking in them

    So they really aren't as bad as they look, some girls I've seen look like they can only just stand in them...
