Heels are mandatory in the modeling industry. We love the way we look in them but hate how they feel after and 8 hour shift at a trade show. Not only can heels cause pain and problems with your feet, they can cause problems with your lower back, knees and pelvis. The reason our feet hurt so much after wearing heels is because our feet slide forward in heels and our body has to reposition all of our weight. There is no way that models can get out of wearing heels to their events but there are a few tips that can reduce the pain and future problems. Only wear heels when you absolutely have to. Always have a pair of comfortable shoes that you can change into immediately after work. Pick a thicker heel over a stiletto and avoid pointy shoes, your toes have no room in them. Chose your heels wisely because you will spend a lot of time in them.
