These Simple Shoe Hacks Take the Pain Out of Wearing High Heels

Most women have a love-hate relationship with heels. On the one hand, they’re beautiful and can make your legs look miles long, yet sky-high stilettos can often cause achy arches, painful blisters and even make existing foot problems like bunions worse. Thankfully, though, there are some handy products on the market that can combat all of these issues so you can comfortably rock your favorite pairs.
Use Moleskin for Blisters
Moleskin is an easy fix for preventing blisters. The heavy cotton, which features an adhesive on the back, can easily be cut and molded to fit areas on the foot that tend to painfully rub against shoes (like around the toes and back of the heel). Plus, it’s more durable than standard bandaids, which tend to bunch or fall off completely after a few hours of walking.
To buy: Dr. Scholl’s Moleskin Plus Padding, $5.
Use Gel Insoles or Cushions for Metatarsal Pain
Due to the slope of heels, downward pressure is concentrated most at the ball of the foot — often causing intense soreness. To help redistribute that pressure and alleviate pain, try a gel insole. (We recommend this highly rated option from Dr. Scholl’s, which features a slim design so as not to make heels feel too tight).
