Meredith Leigh Ward, DPM, a podiatrist at Moore Foot and Ankle Specialists in Asheville, North Carolina says that most of the high heel-related pain she sees walk into her office can be traced back to sky-high shoes. But you don't have to swear off high heels altogether. It's possible to make high heels more comfortable. Just pay attention to how much lift you're getting.

“Two inches is my cut-off,” says Dr. Ward. “A heel below that height does not add significant stress to the metatarsals as the weight can remain distributed between the heel and forefoot.” This also helps you stay balanced she notes. And if your feet hurt even when you’re not as high off the ground? Consider adding a pad to the forefoot of your heels or sticking a full insole inside your favorite pair. Try to take high heels off when you can (at your desk, for example).
