HAH! This is true, my friend.
I have a 17 yr old that wanted heels when she was 15... just about now at 17 she isnt clunking around in them like a horse...

OP, like the other women here... practice and insoles. The best ones Ive ever found cost me an arm and a leg from the "Good Feet Store"... but were a true godsend when having to wear heels and be on your feet for any amount of time.You need to find the right insole THEN worry about your heel size, type, and style.. THEN you can learn to walk in them. some insoles ( most) will effect the size of the shoe) For each type of heel there is a little different "technique" I guess. I used to be into the thin heels.. but in the last few yrs have become a lover of the thick heels.. not that wedge, but thick high heel. Its a little more stable and Im a little more old!

Oh.. and then we can teach you about woman shoe porn : Jimmy Choo,Christian Louboutin, etc...

P.S. Men thought it was sexy or whatever that I put my hand out when rising from a seated position and always walked arm in arm with them... even when out with male friends. Women dont do this much anymore... lost technique as far as Im concerned. I learned this trick from my grandmother who was a certified BOMBSHELL... we do it because heels are high and unstable.. and of course because men take these cues pretty readily even when they dont know they are doing it! Id rather lean on a date or event escort than face plant on the floor or trip like a fool .It wouldnt matter if you were touching them with the tip of your pinkie... men love the physical contact even when youre using their arm as a support! I mean dont lean on them with your weight.. use the arm touch like a tight rope walker uses a pole.. its for balance. The higher the heels are, the more men like it.. she claimed it was because men instinctively knew in heels we were weaker and couldnt run away.... a sort of hobbling. ROFL!! SO go HIGH.. shoot for the aching feet hobbling heights.. and find a man to lend an arm, preferably a good looking one.

PPS... I have to add that over the yrs Ive seen enough men or post ops to tell you.. PLEASE.. if you have a mans foot, dont wear a kitten heel. Mens feet are larger than a womans most of the time. Many wear a kitten heel to keep the feminine thing and heel thing going.. but it makes your feel look like huge boats or water skis... just do everyone a favor, including yourself.. go the extra mile, practice, deal with the pain, and wear a nice high heel... it makes the foot look smaller and you WILL learn to take more graceful small steps. Nothing more ridiculous than seeing a potentially beautiful xdresser or tranny lurching around with long strides in kitten heels... BLECH!

I have to agree with dizziedame on the heels things. There are just so many cute, pretty, sexy flats out nowadays that if you really aren't able to catch on...don't sweat it. If you absolutely must, get a very small heel. They start as small as 1/2 inch I believe. There are many varieties of high heeled shoes, so if you find you can't walk in a stiletto type heel, get a chunkier heel that gives you a bit more area to support the heel on.

Good luck!

Maybe get some cardboard and everyday stick a section on the back of your shoes under your heal section and walk around the house. If you add a section everyday for a month you will soon have massive heals. Remeber though to do both shoes at same time or you might feel uncomforable walking about... and dont go walking out in the rain in them or the cardboard will disintigrate...

Good choice on heels(don't forget some boots with heels!), as they make legs look better/longer. As others have said, it's all about working your way up to higher heels. Your leg muscles will hurt for a while, but its kinda like working out, but for your calves and such.

Being a man who doesn't wear heels I can't say for sure this video will help you, but it might be a good start. I'll admit, that's exactly how I learned to tie a tie, and to this day I'll load up the bookmarked video if I need a refresher.

this makes me want to walk along side of a woman walking in heels, looking at her creepily. Right when she starts to get freaked out, I push her, as she shifts her weight onto the leg opposite me. She would have no way of resisting falling over... hilarious. But... I'll never actually do it.
