Girls love heels! Whether it be 2 1/2 to 7in, anything to get that extra inch to be that much closer to heaven. I don’t always wear heels, but when I do the sky’s the limit. However, after about 30 minutes, having heavenly legs no longer phases my mind because my feet are in complete hell.

The Today Show had a guest expert offering a trick she learned from a “supermodel” to make wearing heels longer less painful. I was intrigued. The trick is to tape your 3rd and 4th toe together before putting on heels. Yes, tape your toes using either scotch tape or medical tape.

Apparently it aligns that muscle in your foot, so “the ball of your foot can be much more steady.”

I’ve used medical tape because it seems more durable, but try either or. If it’s a new pair of shoes you’re feet aren’t used to your feet might rub, so always carry band-aids and medical tape. Band-Aid also makes a Blister Block Stick that’s the perfect size to throw in your purse.
