Make sure they fit
We’ve all been in that situation where you see a pair of must-have shoes, but they’re either a size too big or a size too small. That’s when we come to the rationale that we can either shove our feet into them and make it work or that a little extra space wouldn’t hurt. Then when we take them home and they’re impossible to walk in, we realize that purchase was probably a mistake. With your wedding heels, you’ll want to make sure they fit right. The Huffington Post suggested walking around the store for a bit with the heels on. If there are any problems with the shoe, your feet will very quickly tell you.
Take them for a test drive
You’ll want to break in your heels before you put them on for the real thing. This could be for a day at work or a date night. Glamour, however, suggested trying them out in the supermarket. As ridiculous as you may look in fancy heels at the supermarket, you can use the cart for balance until you get used to the heel. And hey, you can stock up on groceries at the same time!
Massage your feet
You may notice that your feet become slightly sore after wearing a pair of high heels (biggest understatement of the year). When you’re finished wearing them, spend a few minutes massaging your feet. A good way to do this is by rolling a tennis ball under your arches in a few different directions. The Huffington Post noted that doing so helps loosen the muscles and can improve the sensitivity of the sole of your foot for better balance.
Try out different surfaces
On your wedding day, you’ll likely be walking on a variety of surfaces, whether it’s carpet, hardwood floors or grass. Therefore, practice at home walking in a wide array of areas: bumpy, smooth, soft and hard. After a few days, you’ll be ready to take on anything!
