    Really? Thanks happy bean. I really have problems with court or covered shoes. My feet, toes always end up with blisters. Must try your method! Get some vaseline first! But will they make my feet too slippery to walk around or the shoes get loose?

    I am a victim of getting blisters on my foot too. regardless cheap or expensive shoes, covered, open-toe,sandals or heels. there is never a time where i don't get blisters or sore on my foot, once bitten twice shy, I never invested on expensive shoe again. I have blisters even with wearing Birkies at the beginning, now, I'm wearing it 365days (regardless my office do not allow wearing sandals).I can't seem to fit any other shoe. I have problem walking in heels too.can't appreciate the pretty shoes out there.

    I'm naturally flat-footed. Heels + me = kamikaze, but I still wear heels to make up for the vertical challenge.
    And I think because of my flat-footedness, I get quite severe pains in the ball of my foot. And corns etc. So every pair of my heels have petals to try to lessen the condition. Oh well.

    I am a very flats person, but ultimately when you go out for work and etc, heels will make you presentable IMO.

    OT: How do you people know that you have flat feet?

    Wow, before reading this thread I though I was the only one who really suffers when wearing heels..

    I get very aching toes (like i stand on tip-toes the entire day), not to mention blisters and such.. My feet is also very board and I'm also flat-footed to add to my woes..

    Despite that, I still wear heels everyday to work.. Flats are reserved for weekends when I can be my usualy stubby self.. I am on my feet most part of the day, and I so my heels are 2.5" max.. 2" are most comfy for me.. Any higher than that I'll die!

    Well, the common way is to do a wet patch test. Wet your feet, and step onto a piece of paper (or floor if it shows wet spots). Walk a few steps normal and observe the print you make. If it has an concave mark where the arch is, then you have normal feet. If it's just one big patch like a duck's paddle, then you have flat feet. Well, just make sure your feet aren't TOO wet. HTH~

    I bought one pair from Gripz... nice design and height.. but after wearing for half a day, I realised that the front is too small for my broad feet! I almost couldn't walk!

    Ironically I can't wear flats - they make me waddle & I walk funny. When the footwear is too flat, it makes my feet ache. For me low heels are the most comfortable - 1 to 1.5 inch high. And my limit is about 4-5 inches.

    For newbies to heels, keep these in mind
    - start low , around 1-2 inches. once you're used to them you can try higher heels
    - for stability, get a bigger heel or wedges, rather than tiny stiletto heels
    - the arch of the shoe is impt. Try on to make sure the arch does not hurt your feet. This determines slippage as well

    Not all high heels are uncomfortable, it really depends on each individual shoe.

    Me too.. My feet hurts whenever I wear high heels. Even if I wear those covered shoes low heels my shoes will still be "bitten"
    so not much choices and often wear sandle-like shoes that is without covering my toes..
