Answer: Gracefully staying 3 to 6 inches above the ground requires two things: practice and the right pair of heels. Pick a pair that true to your size to minimize discomfort (hello, blisters) and make sure the shoes don’t wobble. Opt for an ankle strap, this will keep your heels firmly on your feet, and help you balance. Distribute your weight evenly instead of shifting it to the heels or the balls of your feet. And finally, just do yourself a favour and pack a pair of emergency flats. Because the only thing that’s better than mastering walking in heels is the moment you get to take them off.
