Yes, but what if you like to wear heels because they slim your leg and make you more elegant and feminine? 👠 Stay calm, we have the solution for you! 

Can you wear heels with orthopedic insoles?

Generally, it is not recommended to wear Orthopedic sole with shoes with a heel of more than 6 cm. 🙅‍♀️ Stiletto heels should be banned if you wear insoles for medical reasons. Indeed, heeled shoes often have a strong inclination of the foot, which is not good for the arch of the foot. The support is not as well distributed as in a flat shoe, especially with high heels. 

However, shoes with small heels less than 6cm can be adapted to wearing orthopedic insoles. Square heels are also more recommended than stiletto heels.

If you are used to wearing heels on a daily basis, it is best to talk to your specialist when making your orthopedic insoles. He will then advise you on the choice of the type of orthopedic insoles for women that you must choose. 🩺

Use silicone pads or half-insoles to stop having sore feet

 When wearing heels, the pain is often located in the front of the foot, because of the curvature caused by the shoe. 👣

Wearing silicone pads or half insoles in the front of your shoe prevents your foot from slipping, and therefore stops friction which could cause pain or blisters. These pads will give you more comfort when wearing heels or pumps.

Be careful though: if you wear heels all day, they won't prevent you from having pain at some point. Heeled shoes are not designed to be worn 24 hours a day, nor for intense days on the move. Heels are worn at a specific time of the day.

So remember to wear your heels only when you need them (during an event for example), and to change pairs of shoes for traveling or long distances. Our advice? Always carry a pair of flat shoes with you when you have heels! 😉 

Wear non-slip soles so you don't slip

 Non-slip soles for heeled shoes can be worn under the outsole, or inside the shoe.

In the first case, the non-slip sole sticks under the shoe, at the front of the foot. It is true that in heels, our support is less well distributed and keeping balance is more complicated. All it takes is a slippery floor to fall and get hurt. 💥 THE non-slip soles to stick under the shoe help prevent these unexpected slips. They offer better stability in your shoes, and better grip on the ground.

The non-slip soles for the inside of the shoe are designed not to slip in your pumps. High-heeled shoes actually have a very inclined insole, where it can be easy to slip. 😱 Balance is uncertain, and if your foot is not well supported, you can easily twist your ankle. THE non-slip self-adhesive soles grip well inside your shoes and prevent your feet from sliding forward. 

Anti-slip sole on heels

Consider leather soles

Not all models of heeled shoes are open. In winter, you may wear heeled ankle boots or boots, which need a sole to be more comfortable. 👢

A leather orthopedic insole provides better grip for your foot in the shoe. Your support is better distributed, your foot is supported, and your posture is correct. You won't hurt your ankles, knees or back, which is usually the case when wearing heels.

If your pair of shoes is too big, wearing leather insoles is also ideal for gaining a size without having to change your shoes. Finally, the leather soles help absorb perspiration. 💦

Don't forget the heel protectors 

Discomfort in heeled shoes often results in their thinness. Very thin stiletto heels do not provide you with balance, and often lead to a posture that is not aligned.

Wearing heel protectors helps to better anchor your heel to the ground, and have a more upright posture. They are placed at the end of your heels and provide you with better balance.

By wearing them, you have less risk of wobbling while walking, and can also walk on terrain where you would not normally venture: grass, stones, cobblestones... at a wedding, this is particularly appreciated.

Silicone pads, leather soles, non-slip soles, heel protectors: you are now ready to walk in heels and be comfortable all day long! Do you have a doubt or a question? We advise you to take a look at our catalog of Orthopedic sole to find your happiness!
