Even if you only wear them from time to time, the shape of heels can hurt your feet due to forcing them for a long time into a position you are not used to. That's why it's best to make sure you wear them properly and don't hurt your feet. One solution is to use insoles for heels.
The most important thing is that the heels are of good quality and that they do not rub your feet when walking, which could damage even more the foot area. In fact, if you pay attention when buying them, you will see that some of them have a soft interior, which make them more comfortable. Bear in mind that buying quality heels can be an investment for the future, by avoiding possible injuries and problems that end up damaging your feet.
When walking, slightly bend your knees (not too much) to avoid damaging them due to the awkward position, and keep your body and back straight to avoid any possible injuries to the spine.
In addition to all these tips for walking and buying heels, a great idea for wearing them safely is to buy insoles, which make them more comfortable and increase your foot's resistance.
Anti-slip insoles for heels, for example, provide further cushion when walking while avoiding too much pressure on the front of your feet and therefore preventing the pain caused by impacting with the ground. Gel insoles are a good ally for your feet. Their composition makes them softer, providing further comfort and helping resistance spread throughout the area.
As we love taking care of you at the DKV Health and Well-being Club , we are offering services such as elite woman insoles. They are custom-made for heels and are made with a material that highly absorbs impacts on the toe area; this way, the weight is spread out and no pain is caused in that area.
In addition, thanks to this service offered by the club, you can previously undergo a gait analysis, where your foot will be analysed in a static and a dynamic position while taking into account its relationship with the knee, hip and spine. This will help us understand your gait when looking for a solution to a bad gait, which can lead to tendinitis, plantar fasciitis or other illnesses. This analysis will also help us monitor your foot when undergoing rehabilitation.
