First of all, contrary to what you might think, the higher the platform on the bottom of the shoe and the thicker the heel itself, the more comfortable the shoe. This little fact surprised me:
Many of my heels have a skinny little heel and absolutely no platform, hence why they are so uncomfortable. Having a skinny heel gives no support to hold up your foot.
Another solution to my high heel problem are heel inserts. I love wearing inserts to give a little cushioning to your feet.
Together, friends, we can make heels bearable! HA!
