High Heel Help
I recently bought some very nice black patent heels with an inbuilt platform sole from boohoo.com - OK I was going to put a link here but it won't work, if you go on the Boohoo website though they're called Phoenix and are £20 - with the intention of wearing them to my staff Christmas do. The problem is, although the shoes do fit, as they're really pointy they're obviously a bit snug round the toes and as they're so ridiculously high I'm going to need some serious walking practice and to do all I can to prevent them hurting. I'm not too bad in high heels generally, although I've never worn ones this high - I don't think I'll be needing to walk very far in them on the night, and hopefully won't be standing for massively long periods, but I was just wondering if anyone has any tips for a) making them more comfortable round the toes and b) wearing them out without crippling myself. I'm going to be using the Party Feet gel cushions and have been trying to wear them round the house as often as possible over thick socks (extremely sexy I assure you), but is there anything else I could do?
