Stretches For High Heel Relief

womans legs raised

Love to wear high heels? I know I do, especially my seductive 6 inch heels! They make my legs look great, but make my feet feel like I dropped 100 old school dictionaries on them by the end of a long night. Here are a few stretches you can do to ease your sore feet after a long day or night of prancing around in your stilettos.

Shin and Ankle Stretch

Your shins and the top of your toes will feel great relief with this move.

  1. Using a chair or bench sit down. Place your right ankle on your left knee (bending your right leg).
  2. Grab the toes of your right foot and pull back, putting your foot in a pointed position. Push your right foot forward in order to make the stretch more intense.
  3. Hold for 10 to 15 seconds, and then switch sides.

Towel Foot Stretch
This move loosens up your calves and provides relief to the soles of your feet.

  1. Sit on the floor and stretch both of your legs out in front of you.
  2. Bend your left leg and keep your right leg stretched out on the floor.
  3. Using a hand towel with each end in one of your hands place the ball of your right foot  in the center of the towel.
  4. Pull back on the towel towards your chest while keeping the right leg straightened.
  5. To intensify the stretch begin to bend the right knee slightly.
  6. Hold for 10-15 and then repeat with the other foot.
