Sarah Jessica Parker’s advise on surviving high heels

While Sarah Jessica Parker might have brought Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo into the fashion limelight she admits that working in stilettos has taken a toll on her feet.

  • Try and opt for leather made shoes as they expand through the course of time and try and avoid cheap materials like plastic. Avoid cheap shoes as advised by SJP.
  • With parties lining up this month, surviving in stilettos and high heels becomes difficult. Here are some tips to avoid any stiletto ordeals:
  • Make sure that the shoes are worn in to avoid shoe bites
  • When possible line your heels with plasters to avoid blisters
  • Tape your thirds and fourth toe together with some scotch tape or medical tape as it steadies the muscles in your foot
  • Carry flip flops or foldable ballerinas in your purse so that you can change in to something comfortable when you start feeling the discomfort
  • Try and opt for leather made shoes as they expand through the course of time and try and avoid cheap materials like plastic
  • This is a good time to invest in some good quality gel insoles that take the shape of your foot
  • Try and buy a shoe that is half up your shoe size so that while standing or dancing your feet are not cramped up.
  • Take a break from heels and get a good pedicure and foot message to relax your muscles. When not needed stick to flat shoes.
