Festive Feet

When you're flat out on the run up to Christmas you need to make sure your feet are prepared too. Continuing on from our last blog, make a note of the following top tips from our Podiatrist, Michael. 

Get in training, mix up your shoes and alternate each day between flats, low heels and high heels to give you and your feet a break. Flats can be festive too!

Use cushions, pads or gel insoles that fit into your shoes to make your feet more comfortable. They may not make you a better dancer but they will keep you out there for longer.

Save your super high heels for special occasions and try to wear heels of no more than 3cms or less. Also, the wider the heel the better the stability, so your ankles are at less risk too. A lower heel puts less strain on your muscles and joints and also helps you keep a better posture.

If you’re only wearing heels once in a while, then you shouldn’t see any lasting effects.
