Walking On Stilts


trutting down a runway in 4 and half inch heels wouldn't be quite a risk for most people, other than models. So what? Walking in high heels is a task that some of us haven't completely been able to master yet. And that's where I come in, I'm gonna give some tips and pointers so you can be also be gracefully walking in those monstrous high heels of shoes you have. Because they're is nothing worst and unpoise than someone walking like a zombie in heels.

1.Crawling Before Walking: Take out those killer high heels of you and just practice standing straight in them. Then try some simple moves like walking side to side, back and forth. Once you've got that down you're ready to start walking.

2.When walking in heels step with your heel down first, then let the sole follow quickly and smoothly. Make your toes are also pointed straight and you are standing up straight, keep you legs somewhat closer than normal.

3.Remember, the most important thing is to be relaxed, this way you won't be so stiff and your knees can bend somewhat and you don't look like your stomping while walking.

4. Of course you should be conscious when first walking in heels, and so start off slow, with short walks, etc... then once your confidence has grown, you can bloom into a great strutter.

5. Mount Everest: Stairs can be just as challenging in heels, as climbing a mountain for some. Always try to be as closest to the railing as possible, this will ensure you have something to grab onto if your about to fall. When walking up stairs make your heel and sole touch the ground (a sturdy position) When going down, you should walk down with just your soles touching the stairs (if you don't you may walk down hardly, looks like stomping)


*** Important ***


1. You should try to avoid wearing heels while driving, you'll have less control over the pedals, and you may ruin your heels. Just have a pair of sneakers, or flats in your trunk just in case.


2. Baby Steps is key. Start off with a lower height in a heel. (i.e: a kitten heel, 2 inch heel) or instead of a pointy heel, go with something with a little more.

3. If you plan on going dancing, make sure you're able to in your shoes of choice. Practice in them and see how you do. Also make sure they are comfortable.

4. Don't walk in deep puddles, mud, soft ground , etc... Your heel may sink in the ground, or you may slip on wet or icy surfaces.

5. Avoid backless shoes at first. Go with something with all around support.

good tips but don't forget to avoid cobble stone if possible as well as the mud becuase heels can get stuck in between the stones

I love those blue patent ones, who are they by?

Frapp said...

It was very odd...I wore my first pair of heels when I was 7 and my Mum kept warning me: Be very careful. But I took to heels like a duck to water! I guess some people just take to it, whereas others have to learn it.

Oh yes, someone beat me to the "avoid cobblestone and brick" part...also, watch out for grates on the streets as well.

Great tips, but walking in heels isn't as difficult as I first thought. I can run and jump in four inch heels now!

lebook said...

thank you so much for your tips , I would love to walk with heels but I m affraid to fall over !
I think the blue one are from Lanvin ...

wendy said...

definitely a helpful entry!! haha i was actually running down a mental checklist of your notes today when i was walking out for lunch

and yea, cobblestones are scary, during my study abroad in rome, i never touched any of the heels i had brought with me for fear that i'd get caught and twist my ankle... yet it seems that all the italian women there had mastered cobblestones and were effortlessly gliding over it!!

I can walk in heels fine. I played with my mum's old high heels when I was 8...could walk in them. Never lost my love of them!

alluretone said...

thoes blue shoes looks really risky, they're so point at the bottom.

McDreamer said...

Actually wearing heels improves the posture and makes us strutt beautifully. We just have to be really careful on watching our steps.

I fondness listening to music from my iPod while I'm on the impel, be it on the bus, the retainers, or just while doing groceries. For that reason, I every time need a shapely up of stereo earphones with me, and of run on some days I'd like my earphones to be an whistles, where I twin it with my utensils for that day. So I buy a up of deviser earphone every other month. Recently, I bought the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-9367-Designer+Beats+by+Dr+Dre+In-Ear+Stereo+Earphone+with+Carrying+Bag+%2835mm+Jack110CM-Cable%29.html]Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com in their Speakers & Earphones section. DealtoWorld.com has become my lapse online shopping location that I look in on time again to buy whatever I may need. Succeeding to the DIY accumulation or the mall has mature relatively less pleasurable than browsing totally the wide classification of things at DealtoWorld.com. I would also like to get stereo speakers one light of day for my home.

These conniver beats that I bought comes with a carrying bag, which makes the author earphone definitely at one's fingertips to inventory and carry. I've uploaded a pair of pictures of the draughtsman stereo earphone and the carrying bag so you can espy what comes with the earphone install I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url].

On some days, I'd like to lend an ear to to good music with a stalwart bass, so I also do invest in all right pairs of stereo earphone like Sennheiser. They're not so much plotter beats, but absolutely considerate looking for getting into the music. Although the conniver beats I bought from DealtoWorld.com is not a clear-cut trade mark like Sennheiser or Sony, it does stationary block at large external uproar, making in the service of listening pleasure. The style the designer earphone contours around the ears also makes on the side of warm utilization, and the goodness point upon the Draughtsman Beats via Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Lookout (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable) I bought from DealtoWorld.com is that it comes with multiple sizes of attention tips and leisure appreciation buds. These things are perplexing to find so I'm satisfied the originator beats came with it. I can use these taste tips and buds on my other pairs of earphone too. The carrying jump at is of course a pre-eminent bonus for unoppressive storage and portability.

I like to match this pair of draughtsman beats close to Dr. Dre with my pink spaghetti strap and milky shorts, I think it goes ostentatiously with this outfit. While waiting in queues or waiting for the treatment of a new zealand mate for a lunch job, I take part in my favorite Sillcock Tapping Revolution distraction on my iPod Match with this pair of stereo earphone. The outward rumbling gets blocked in so well, and coupled with the praisefully engrossing draw on unflinching, I don't gloaming notice when my ally arrives! Agreeable, that's what a salutary team up of stereo earphone should do, I believe. In any case, I do win it a sense to let inseparable earphone out of my ear whenever I irritated the street, or when I'm walking on a less deserted road. This I do after shelter reasons. I steady wouldn't after to after into an accident or be in abuse's way justifiable because I was wearing my plotter stereo earphone and couldn't hear threat chat up advances my way.
