It’s one of life’s cruellest jokes. High heels have the ability to make us look taller and our legs longer. They take any outfit from from casual to glam, but they come at a painful, not-so-ladylike price. If you’ve ever walked home, heels in hand, you’ll know exactly what we mean.
Somebody who knows a thing or two about trying to last all night in heels is the stunning Kendall Jenner, who’s rarely spotted without a pair of sky-highs on her feet.
Second youngest of the Kardashian clan, Kendall is making quite a name for herself in the fashion world. The runway is her second home, meaning she spends more time in heels than she does barefoot. So how does the 19-year-old cope with constant high heel wearing?
“I switch from one foot to another a lot”, she explains.
If you look closely at these photos, you can see Kendall regularly stands with one foot in front of the other. What’s become her signature pose is actually how she deals with foot pain – she lets her front foot have a break while her back foot holds the weight.
“You have to keep moving your feet”, she says.
In her interview with The Daily Mail, Kendall also went on to reveal why wearing heels is even more uncomfortable for her: “I have the longest toes in the world; they’re spider toes. So they’re kind of being crunched right now…”
She also finds the better quality the shoe, the more comfortable they are to wear.
But of course, not all of us can afford Manolo Blahniks or Louboutins, but thankfully there are ways we can make the heels we already own a little easier to wear.

Kendall’s beauty tricks don’t just stop at her feet either. She also has some solid pieces of advice for glowing skin: “Wash your face, eat right and drink lots of water”, shiny hair: “I always let my hair air-dry after washing it.” and make-up: “I think a natural look is prettier. I like a good eye with lot’s of mascara.”
