When it comes to heels, remember that quality is always a priority over quantity. It is not how many you buy, it is how well you buy. Your shoes need not cost you a bomb. Even the cheap ones sometimes are better in quality. Wearing bad heels will break your ankle and spoil your legs. It is important to buy a quality or standard kind of heels for your feet. Having four pairs of heels is ideal for any girl. But, if you can afford more, then who are we to tell you how much you should buy. Remember, buy the ones that give you comfort over price or looks.

If you know that your day is going to be crowded with people, work and a straight 14 hours shift, then wearing black pumped stilettos make no sense. You got to be aware that wearing heels everyday can seriously damage your ankle. So, if you are aware of the hard day ahead, take a spare pair of your stylish sneakers to work. Or if you know that your evening will be spent drinking, dancing, it is better to chuck the idea of pumps all together. Think for yourself! What is better, a paining ankle where you have no idea what to concentrate on? Or a happy stylish looking cut shoe/ballerinas that give you comfort? You will not be comfortable in your pumps, if they are not practical in the present moment.
