My heels constantly hurt my feet. Is there any way to help this?
First, make sure they fit properly. The ball of the foot should fit into the widest part of the shoe. When you're shopping, look for shoes that have a platform. They reduce pressure on the ball of the foot, giving the illusion of a higher heel, but with less pain. You can also use products like Foot Petals ( $16.89; amazon.com ) which specifically cushion the problem areas.
