The right pair of high heels can make an outfit.

But they don’t always leave your feet feeling the best.

Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer to wear them. Walter’s Shoe Care provides solutions for cleaning and comfort. So you can look good – and feel more confident – wearing your stilettos, pumps, wedges or booties.

DID YOU KNOW

The first records of an elevated shoe appeared in the Middle Ages, and were referred to as “pattens”. A patten was a wooden accessory that was added to the sole of the shoe to keep them clean from mud and debris in the streets.

HIGH HEEL HACKS: TIPS AND TRICKS

  • Make sure you’re purchasing the right size. Believe it or not, it’s a common mistake to purchase the incorrect size of heel. As we age, and our bodies change, so too do our feet. A half size can make all the difference in terms of your comfort.
  • Consider whether you need a wide or thin shoe type.
  • Always stretch your feet after removing your heels.
  • Thick heels and platforms are more comfortable heels. These heel types distribute weight more evenly, making them more comfortable for you, while not compromising on style.

You can also instantly add comfort to your shoes with one of our shoe care kits, specially designed for high heel support.
