Your wedding day is not the day to break in your new heels especially, if you are not comfortable carrying them otherwise. So what is? “The supermarket”, Camilla Morton, the author of A Year in High Heels and How to Walk in High Heels quotes “Get a cart and go for a spin. As you stock up on groceries, use the cart for balance while your feet get used to the new high heel.”
Cushion Your Shoes
One you have bought your princess worthy high heels, wear them for an hour at home and see if you feel a bit of pain anywhere.
