Take your designer shoes to a pedorthist to have them custom fit
Take your designer shoes to a pedorthist to have them custom fit to your feet. They may be able to stretch the toe box to better accommodate your feet.Try wearing a larger size than usual and insert heel cups into the backs for a better or more comfortable fit.
Wear open toe shoes instead of a similarly-styled shoe that causes discomfort in your toes. Partially open toe shoes have become more acceptable in many work environments, allowing you to further customize your shoes to your feet.Remember that however appealing those high-heel, high-fashion shoes are, your feet need to carry you around for a lifetime. Treat them kindly!
There are very few real problems with walking in high-heels once you get used to them, but as with all things, practise makes perfect. Don't go head over heels! Before you wear a pair of high-heels out for the first time, wear them around the house first.
