Almost every woman has encountered a special pair of heels only to discover the retailer doesn't have them in her size. Instead of walking away, many ladies will squeeze their feet into ill-fitting shoes.

Instead of sacrificing your feet for the sake of fashion, learn how to pull off stunning footwear while avoiding blisters and calluses. Consider the following tips inspired by WebMD:

1. First of all, no matter how tempting it may be, do not wear shoes that are the wrong size! Keep in mind that your shoe size may change over time as you gain or lose weight.

2. Every now and then, trade in those stilettos for a thicker heel, which will provide more support and minimize the pressure put on your feet.

3. Keep your feet padded by placing inserts in the soles of your pumps. This is especially beneficial for women in their 40's and beyond who may have less flesh protecting the balls of their feet than they did when they were younger.

Now that your feet are in good shape, make sure your legs are ready to take the spotlight by moisturizing them with ELEMIS Treat Your Feet Foot Cream and layering with Bliss Softening Socks. A little body skincare goes a long way when it comes to keeping your gams extra gorgeous.
