Last month, the woman who set the prime example for what it means to be living la vida fashionista, Sarah Jessica Parker, told Net-A-Porter that years of wearing high heels have taken a toll on her sweet feet, leaving us with the impression that she may be retiring her stilettos.
So long as you practice care and caution, too, there is no reason why you should end up in Parker’s unfortunate situation. Here are my tips for surviving high heels:
1. Wear the correct size shoes. Age, weight gain and weight loss can change your feet and their size. Go to your favorite shoe boutique and ask to be measured by a professional. Nothing will damage your tootsies more than wearing the wrong size shoes. And continue to be measured on, at least, a yearly basis.
