It's Possible To Walk In High Heels Without Looking, Or Sounding, Like A Clydesdale

We need to let you in on a little secret: the least sexy or attractive thing you will ever see is a woman who doesn’t know how to walk in high heels. This abomination not only makes the woman look bad but it makes the shoe look even worse (which is a serious offense in our book). In preparation for Fashion Week and the minions teetering around the tents in impossibly high heels, we thought we’d highlight some videos that show how to properly walk in skyscraper shoes.

Legworkvideo.com has a model demonstrate the common mistakes one makes when wallking in heels. These include wobbling your ankles or locking the knees. 

ShoeTubeTV.com enlists the help of a real woman who doesn't wear heels and teaches her how adjusting her posture and incorporating her thigh muscles can aid in walking in stilettos.

Feel like you’re ready to take the training wheels off and strut the streets with confidence? Here’s how to cheat: platforms! We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – the platform is a stabilizing way to protect the ball of your foot while you're walking about in gorgeous skyscrapers. Three high heels every woman should have in her closet are a bootie, pump, and an evening sandal. We recommend the Pura Lopez Ankle Bootie ($165) and Dolce Vita Molly Platform Mary Jane Pump ($165) as everyday options and this sexy Pelle Moda ‘Vino’ sandal ($179.95) as a nighttime firestarter.
