Victor Chu, a former shoe designer in NYC, has been dubbed the “stiletto whisperer” by people in the fashion industry. He claims that the reason women have such a hard time wearing sky high heels is because they are wearing and walking in them incorrectly. The key to walking in heels, so you don’t look like a newborn baby deer, is being fit. This dude even offers classes to women on how to walk in heels. Here are his expert tips on how to properly wear your stilettos:
Make sure they actually fit properly: Don’t force your feet into improper shoes. There are so many styles to choose from, take the time to make the right decision.
Check your soles: Make sure that the sole of the shoe is completely flat to the floor and doesn’t tip over or wobble. This will help with stability.
Exercise your core muscles: Wearing heels is a workout – you wouldn’t run a marathon without training for it.
Posture: Head high and shoulders back – just like your mom told you when you were young!
Look straight ahead when walking: If you are looking down, that means your shoes don’t fit well. There should be no hurting or pinching if you are wearing proper heels. (Shine)
