o Wear high heels only when you don’t have to walk a lot or perform energetic activies.

2. Choosing the right pair.

o Never lend or borrow shoes, in term of hygiene, even if it is for a few seconds. Several bacterial infections can be transferred from one person to the other in this way.
o After a day or evening in high heels, massage your foot, roll your foot over a frozen sports water bottle.
o Stretch both your foot and your calf after wearing high heels. To stretch the arch, rest your foot on the opposite knee and pull the toes back.
o Change shoes when you arrive home and spend the evening without heels on.

4. Don’t ignore foot problems.
