How long does it take to walk well in heels?

I do fine in a pair of 2.5" wedges, but I'm going to a formal event in mid-June and need to wear actual heels. I found some that are absolutely perfect, but they're 4.5" high and I'm positive I can't walk gracefully in them yet. I'm still practicing with a pair that's nearly an inch lower than that.

Do you think I'll have time to adjust to the higher heels?

  • That really depends as to how much you wear your heels, like daily, or 2 days a week, 3 days a week or do you wear only on special occasions or parties?

    If you are wearing daily and for a good number of hours then you should learn to walk in a reasonably quick time.

  • I suppose practice - Get a pair of cheap 4.5" to practice in and that gives you nearly two months to get used to heels that high.

  • 54 hours, 23 min and 45 seconds accoording to my very scientific and 100% trustworthy calculations.

    Okay, I may be a bit off.

  • I do not know, never wear heels before. Keep practicing walking in them.

  • Maybe you learn to walk in them in time, but dancing in them should be interesting.

  • Haha anything more than 3 inches and I don't think I'd ever be able to walk in them.

    But I usually find if you can't walk right in them within 20 minutes of putting them on then that ain't gonna change. But if u get steaming drunk it might make it easier... or at least make u think you're walking better in them xD

  • Higher heels take time. .. Definitely. I tend to only wear my 4-5 inch ones when clubbing or around boyfriends. ... they kind of put your feet in an almost vertical position. Which makes me feel sexy and look hot but u can't actually wear them for long without pain and feet going numb

  • Sometimes just days and sometimes weeks. Depends on the heels and I have over than 14 pairs. Higher heels, yeah they are more work. At the same time, they are more sexy.

  • Some take longer than others. Depends on the heel.

  • Definitely! It may help to just practice walking around in them at home before then.

  • Just keep walking in them. I have a pair of 5 inch heels and it took some time.
