  • Poorly made and cheap shoes are more likely to cause pain than those that are made from better materials. This is simply because softer, more malleable heels provide a softer and comfier experience when you wear them. However, even the most expensive, high quality heels can cause discomfort.
  • If you are wearing high heels that do not fit, or do not fit well, you are likely to feel the pain. This can be in the form of a blister, aching in the balls of your feet or an overall feeling of discomfort.
  • It’s often a case of the higher the heel, the higher the level of pain. This is simply because you are putting an increased amount of pressure on the balls of your feet which can lead to aches.
  • The type of heel can also affect whether or not they cause pain. Wedges, heeled boots and shoes with a chunky heel are usually more comfortable to wear as the pressure is spread over a larger surface area when compared to shoes with thinner, stiletto-like heels.
