How to Walk in High Heels : Walking in Pageant Shoes & Very High Heels


Hi! I’m Yvette Parish, and thank you for
visiting expertvillage.com. Today, we’re going to be talking about high heels. In the
pageant, when I did Ms. Ethnic World in Washington D.C., I was one of the most petite contestants.
I don’t want to say the shortest, but I want to say I was one of the shortest contestants.
The shorter you are, the higher the heel you really need to wear. These are 5 inch lucite,
clear pageant shoes, I guess you can call them. To do a beauty pageant, it’s very
important that you’re able to stand up very long and lean, a very proud, suck the tummy
in, you have a beautiful heel. This elongates you, so these 5 inches made me 5’7” on
stage. Maybe with tall hairstyle I’m 5’8”, but that’s about it. If you’re going to
prom or some special event, and you want to wear high pair of shoes, and you can look
your best as well, kind of work your way up to wearing a height like this. If you’re
not used to wearing any kind of heels at all and you’re always wearing flat shoes, and
you go from feast to famine or famine to feast, and you go from a flat shoe to a 5 inch heel,
you’re probably going to hurt yourself. It’s like walking on your tip toes. So,
I would get maybe a starter pair in the middle. Maybe get 2 or 3 inches, and wear those even
around the house for about a week; get used to it. Get a very inexpensive pair but a higher
heel, and not as high of course as your 5 inch, but get something in between. Work your
on that for about a week. Walk on carpet, walk on floor, walk up the stairs. Get used
to the feel, so when you get a 5 inch heel or 6 inch or 4 inch pair, they’re going
to be much more comfortable. I do find that you’re going to have to get your arch on
your foot a little bit used to walking on the tip toe. So if you’re used to not wearing
any heels or always flats or tiny heel, you’re going to have to train the arch of your foot
to walk on your tip toes all the time. So, you’re really are walking like that. You’ll
hurt your feet if you just go from feast to famine. So have a starter pair, have one while
you’re working, and then have your final pair. By the end, after a week or 2 and your
practicing, you’ll be a professional in those heels.

  1. @BadBitchJordynn well four other people agree with me …so.. yeah …. I stand by my statement ,,, you must either be a stripper/hooker who is offended or someone who wears clear kills and didn't know she looks like a stripper … in my opinion those type of shoes are for hookers and I am entitled to my opinion. … how is that ignorant? And the word "ignorant" is coming from a person who refers to herself as a "bitch" … yeah … real classy #sarcasm

  2. @BadBitchJordynn I may be "immature" but at at least I have self respect….. my fav. colors are pink and gold …how is that immature … everyone has a favorite color.
