Okay, let’s just get this out of the way: Walking in high heels will never–ever–be as comfortable as walking in sneakers. And anyone who says so is probably lying to make you feel inferior. That being said, however, high heel shoes don’t have to kill your feet. After all, there’s a whole army of street style stars who make wearing heels look so damn easy, there has to be some secret.

Turns out, there are actually a bunch of secrets to making high heels more comfortable. The obvious ones? Buy the right size, duh. There’s no way your foot is going to be comfortable squeezed into a shoe that’s even a half size too small. Another no-brainer is to stick with a reasonable heel height. 4-4.5 inches and below is normally where most women max out in terms of truly being comfortable in heels.

Once you have your right size and an acceptable height, here are a few more must-try tricks to make wearing heels more comfortable than you ever imagined it could be.

While we’re on the subject, shop these chrome heels, the new Preen x Aldo high heel collection and mesh heels.
