The Ball's in My Court Shoes

People remark how well and how long I manage to wear high heels.

Having worn high heels for over a half century, I learned that the balls of my feet are usually the first part of my anatomy to complain about my choice of footwear. To avoid or prolong the onset of sore feet, I have a simple exercise to strengthen the balls of my feet. When I am not wearing heels, I walk tippy-toe whenever possible.

Every morning, I walk one mile on the paved streets of my neighborhood in boy mode and most of that mile I walk tippy-toe.

Luckily, I live in the woods and only pass three houses during my daily mile. Foot and vehicular traffic is also very light and most days, I do not encounter anyone during my walk. So although I am outdoors and very exposed, it is very private and I can walk tippy-toe without anyone seeing me.

Walking tippy-toe on pavement is probably the best exercise my feet get as compared to walking tippy-toe around the house on carpeted floors. Besides strengthening the balls of my feet, walking tippy-toe probably strengthens my arch, too. Note well that I am not a doctor and I am not qualified to give medical advice. What I am writing here is just what I have experienced as a woman and your mileage may vary.

I always try to improve my female presentation whenever I can. So while I am walking tippy-toe, I also practice walking like a woman, one foot in front of the other just like the woman in the video clip at the top of this post.

Have a femulating weekend!

  1. Hi Stana

    Thanks for the tippy-toe tip. I will give it a good try but only a little at first and slowly increasing the time. I do have a problem wearing heels so I hope this will help me to be more comfortable wuith them.


  2. I do the "one foot in front of the other" walk in boy mode too! I noticed that when I walk in tight skirts (my favorite) I find the shortened steps naturally ended up tippy-toed sometimes, seems like tight skirts and heels go well together, time to practice my tippy-toed walk! 😉
