Let's face it women love their high heeled shoes, not only are these shoes attractive they also add height and look great for the office and nights out on the town.

In fact, many women like their high heeled shoes so much they wear them when shopping and for even more casual events. However, with today's increasing prices, most women want to get the most out of their high heeled shoes so here are some tips on how to extend the life of those stylish shoes that you love the most.


Don't Wear Your Heels Out of Doors in Bad Weather

If you know that it may rain or snow on any given day, why not wear a pair of comfortable tennis shoes or snow boots going to and from your car and your office building and only putting on those heels once you are inside. Rain and snow and soften glues and loosen stitches that are holding the shoe together drastically shortening the life of your high heels. If your heels to get wet, then take the time to dry them properly away from direct heat.

Make sure the Heels You Buy Fit Properly

While you should have at least a few pairs of heels in your shoe collection, make sure that each pair of heels you own fits properly and is fairly comfortable. Sometimes adding an insert or a pad to uncomfortable shoes will make them feel more comfortable. There is no sense in spending money on shoes that look cute, but don't fit well because they will only sit in your closet and you will end up putting more wear and tear on those shoes that do fit properly.

More choices means less wear on each pair of shoes.

Shopping carefully and purchasing a good pair of high heels that you like when they are on sale means there will be more heels in your wardrobe for you to choose from and the more choices you have, the less often you will wear each pair of heels, thus prolonging the life of each individual pair of shoes.

Maintain Your Shoes Properly Right from the Start

Another way to prolong the life of those high heeled shoes is to start maintaining them properly right from the start. If possible invest a little money in those thin extra rubber soles and heel caps to keep the soles and heels of the shoes from wearing out quite so quickly. Try spraying them with rain and stain repellent to help them deflect water, mud and snow. If those heels are leather than make sure you condition them properly and be sure to store each pair of heels in a shoe box or on a shoe tree to keep them from from getting scratched on that closet floor.

If you have vinyl shoes and most people have at least one or two pair. Make sure that you keep the shoes clean and free and free of mud and dirt. If possible cover any scratches to keep them looking "as good as new".

By prolonging the life of your high heels you can save money, keep looking great, and keep those favorite high heels for far longer than you might have thought possible.
