How to Look Good Walking in Heels

Walking in heels can be tricky. Walking gracefully in heels is even trickier. Looking like an idiot when you walk can do a lot to discount the sexiness of a hot pair of shoes.


1.This article is all about the details. Before you start trying to perfect your walk, make sure you can take more than just a few steps in your shoes no matter how you look doing it. It's important to choose shoes that are at least sort of comfortable.
2.Practice! Practice! Practice! And watch yourself when you're walking.
3.Pay attention to the position of your feet. Your toes should be facing straight ahead. If your feet are turned out, you'll look like a duck when you walk. If your feet are turned in, you will probably fall down.
4.Try to keep your steps in a straight line. If you keep your feet apart when you're walking, you end up with a bit of a waddle. If you cross your feet over too much, you can start to look a little tipsy.
5.Try different lengths of your step and figure out what looks the best and is the most comfortable for you. If it's painful stepping, you're not going to look graceful. For most, a higher heel means a shorter step. Watch how the models walk for inspiration.
6.Keep your weight a little bit forward. Don't step toe first, but don't rely on your heel to take all your weight when you step. Especially if you're wearing really spiky heels. The higher and skinnier the heel, the more forward your weight should be.
7.Again, watch yourself. Be aware of how you are walking until it becomes natural to you.


TIPS
Walk in front of a mirror. Get a friend to watch you walk and give you feedback. Use a video tape and watch yourself walk. It may seem narcissistic, but it will help you look hot in the long run.
If you can find a floor with straight lines painted on it, use it to help you keep your steps in line. Sidelines of basketball courts are a great example.
Lines painted down the middle of busy streets are a bad example.
Walking with your feet one in front of the other is something you can practice without heels too. If you get so this is your natural way of walking, you're going to look just as hot walking in tennis shoes as stilettos.


WARNINGS
While it's good to check yourself out when you're practicing, don't do it when you're out on the town.
Don't get shoes that are too high. Not only will they be nearly impossible to walk well in, they're also really bad for your legs and feet! To check if your shoes are too high, do this simple test. Stand in your shoes on a floor, and then try to raise yourself onto your toes (without bending your knees) so that there is at least an inch between the heel and the floor. If you find this impossible, the heel of the shoe is too high for you; you will end up straining your knees and legs as you try to walk in such a shoe.
Don't wear your high heels every day! You'll end up causing problems for your feet when you're older, so just wear them once in a while.
Don't drive in high heels. Wear flats, and change in your heels later if you're going to drive in them.
