High Heels fall from the foot

Question by Supermausi | 25/09/2012 at 09:03

I have a problem with some of my high and open shoes. Some of my open Pumps does not really sit fixed on the heel, although I have actually taken the right shoe size. Every time, I'm not careful, it can happen, that the High Heels simply slide down from the foot, stumbling and embarrassing performances are inevitable. Particularly bad is, when dancing and I am sweating, so that the foot then became so wet, that the foot is really slipping forth and back in the shoe.

It is interesting, that it does not occur in some shoe models, but at others all the more, and sometimes, it also affects only one shoe, while the other sits properly. Then, I try to claw tightly with my feet in the show, but indeed, that does not look very relaxed and it is not a good solution for the problem.

Does anyone know this problem and maybe found a solution? Please help me, I want to continue to wear my beloved heels!

The solution is: buying smaller shoes! Earlier, I also walked in my normal shoe size and I had the same problem. Since I always buy one or two sizes smaller in high heels (as opposed to flat shoes), the shoes are sitting tight and fit.

I once heard of a solution with double-sided tape. With this, you can practically stick your shoes to the heels and therefore you can not slip out of them. I just do not know, whether the shoes can break with this. Finally, it may be, that you can not get out the tape of your shoes or there are at least ugly residues. Whether it can help you, I do not know.

Not a good idea, I have already tried it out. The problem is, that the tape does not hold any longer, once you have sweated. And your question was indeed, that it should keep your shoes on your feet when sweating and dancing. So far, I have not found any tape that holds in these circumstances. Perhaps, you could take some socks or stockings that you stick to the shoes. That should at least keep better than on the skin.

So for me, the trick with the tape has helped, it always seems to depend on the foot and the shoes and of course, where you run around.

I am always using so called toe pads. Just google for that or ask for them in a shop. There are a lot of different versions of it and it really has helped me. That are gel pads or other reinforcements, which are placed around the entire foot or the toes. So, the shoe gets tighter at this point, everything is fixed and you get more support. It is also used in ballet.

There are insoles, that I can recommend. Either you can generally put them under the foot, which makes the shoe smaller and thus you get more hold, or you can use small deposits only for the heel. That is such a small piece that you put directly behind the heel. This also shortens the length of the shoe, so that you are firmly with your foot at the back.

Since the material from these deposits are usually also very soft, it is even more enjoyable for you to wear high heels with them.

There are also such stick-on gel pads, that can help you, too.

Buy yourself only proper shoes! It has been my experience, that with cheap shoes made of synthetic material, it does not take long and the heels are a number or two numbers bigger, so fast they are wear out! That can not happen with proper (expensive) shoes. Here, you can just invest a little more to also buy more pleasure in your shoes.

Perhaps your feet are just too narrow. Most shoes are made for a certain length and width. If you have to narrow feet for your shoe length, you can quickly slip out. I would try it again with inserts/insoles.

Shoes need to fit! There are so many beautiful shoes around the world, that you just want to have, even though, they do not fit. Try the shoes in the store for a long time, and then only buy if we the shoes fit properly. I myself have bought enough shoes, I just liked, but not fit. You will not have any fun with those shoes. A shoe must also fit to his shoe.

Maybe it's at your gear, practice a little bit in front of the mirror and then just try a bit, how you have to walk, so that it is not happening. I think, with this, it should not be the problem in some time.

Heel padding at the back, cushion at the front, insole below, and if all of this does not help: use hairspray! That has always helped me!

There are still so many other kinds of beautiful shoes! So, it is not necessary to wear open-toed shoes at all. Just take  ankle boots, boots or strappy sandals! The stay on the feet!
