My experience with tall shoes so far have been with an array of kitten heels (all skinny heels), boots with a 2.5(ish?) skinny heel, and sandals with 3-inch thick platform espadrilles (no heel) and another pair of 3-inch platform sandals (no heel). The Dr. Martens are a block heel with a platform and lugged soles.

Just walk. Walk around your house, walk around the grocery store. Walk to your mailbox. Walk your dog. Practice makes perfect!
