There Is A Formula To Finding The Right Size Heel For Your Foot

Who knew! There’s apparently a formula for everything, including knowing how tall of a heel you should be wearing so that you’re not in excruciating pain. Because, have you ever noticed how some women can wear sky high heels like it’s no big deal whereas others just wear a small kitten heel and are in pain by lunch? Well, it’s all in the shape of your foot!

So, here’s the 3-step equation:

(1) ‘Take off your shoes, sit down and hold one leg straight out in front of you, relaxing your foot.’  If your foot sits naturally at a right angle to your outstretched leg and does not dangle, then you have less mobility in the talus and will be more comfortable in flat shoes than in high heels. If the top of your foot falls forwards, in a straightish line following your leg, you are a natural heel wearer.

(2) To find your optimum heel height, get a friend or partner to help stretch the tape measure from your heel in a straight line parallel to the floor, then place a pencil at the ball of your foot at right angles to the tape.

(3) Reading the tape measure where it hits the pencil will give you your ideal heel height.

Happy shoe shopping.
