High heels are generally considered one of the worst things you can possibly wear while traveling, but that’s not stopping some people from trying. If you can’t imagine parting ways with your favorite pair the next time you hit the road, here are three things you should keep in mind.
The Right Pair
Traveling in five-inch stilettos is not the best idea, but if you opt for medium-height shoes with thick heel, you should be good to go. Remember to skip pumps with synthetic linings to avoid getting blisters, and opt for soft leathers instead.
Test Them Out
You should never wear brand-new shoes to a long trip – especially not high heels. Resist your urge to have them looking nice and shiny in your photos, since you’re not doing any favors to your feet. Sightseeing usually lasts for hours, and you have to pick shoes that are comfortable enough to handle all that walking.
There’s nothing wrong about feeling more confident and comfortable in high heels, but you don’t have to wear them all the time. Give your feet some rest by saving them for days when you’re not doing so much walking.
