Walking in heels on different surfaces

When walking on concrete footpaths or hard flooring, ensure to walk lightly under foot with no abrasive heavy steps. Always lead with the ball of your foot.

Moving over the softer surfaces like grass, be sure to engage your calf muscles by lifting yourself even higher in your heels. This helps elongate your look which elevates your high heel above the grass line. This avoids the heel from sinking.
