Tips for Making Heels More Comfortable - Buy Shoes that FitTopping our first tip for making heels more comfortable and probably the most obvious tip is to buy shoes that fit ladies. If you have wider feet, stay away from any pointed toed heels. An open-toed heel would be the best option for us ladies with wider feet. And don’t worry, there is a perfect shoe out there for everyone, so don’t try to squeeze into one that doesn’t fit comfortably.

#2 Tip: Wear in to Wear Out

All this means is when you get your new shoes home, wear them around the house with thick socks on. Try to do this at least once a day or a couple times a week depending on the date you plan to wear your new heels. By wearing thick socks, this will help stretch out the heels and break them in. Thus, making the day you wear your new heels as comfortable as can be!
