sneakers or flip flops, your full foot hits the ground more or less at the same
time. In heels, however – and particularly in very high heels – this method
won’t only feel uncomfortable and awkward; it’ll look like that, too. Instead,
you need to adapt the way you walk so that your heel comes into contact with
the ground first, followed by the rest of the foot. This might take a bit of
getting used to, which brings me to my next point…
walking in high heels, it’ll feel very unnatural and awkward the first time you
try it. And if you simply give up after that, and don’t try again for a few

“walking” bit first!), and if you try to march along with your arms swinging by
your sides, it might look a little bit unnatural. Again, being able to see
yourself in a mirror will really help with this, and you should instantly be
