High Heels are obviously not ideal footwear for running a marathon or doing construction work. But the shoes doe get a bad rap sometimes – with many people assuming that high heel = instant pain. In reality, some people might be suffering not because of the heel, but because they’ve chosen a poorly fitting shoe. Here are a few tips on how to determine your foot type so that you can choose your shoes wisely.

First figure out of you have a high arch, neutral arch, or a flat foot:

“Take a piece if paper and place it on the ground. Dip your foot in water and then place it on the sheet of paper while sitting on a chair. Repeat the process with your other foot. Now take a look at the footprint and determine what kind of arch it is.”

  • High arches – Buy shoes with generous cushion.
  • The neutral arch – You lucky ones have the most flexibility in shoes, just make sure you get the right size.
  • Flat or very low arch – Look for lots of supports; may be less able to handle very high heels.
