GL's ultimate high-heel workout

 
Why totter around in your totally fab high heels when you can strut about all night long with just a little pre-party prep? Rock those stilettos, pumps, sky-high wedges and strappy heels all night long with a li’l help from the GL shoe-crazy crew. We’ve got all the moves you need to break those babies in and brave ‘em for your big night out.

 

Try…

 

Walk to the walk

First things first: It’s time to get comfy takin’ your stellar new shoes for a walk. Put ‘em on after school and wear them for an hour or two at a time. If they’re tight, chillin’ on the couch to let them stretch a bit first might help, but do get off your booty and cover some ground. Get used to walking on tile, hardwood and carpeted floors.

Tip: Slippin’ and sliding? Hit the pavement to scuff up the soles, or put a piece of duck tape on the sole, right beneath the bottom of your foot, to give ya some traction.

 

Bust a move

High tail it to your room, crank up the tunes and work on your best dance moves. Or, pop in a dance-centric video game like last year’s hit Just Dance 2 and groove along as best you can’t. Don’t push yourself—turning an ankle will keep ya sidelined all season. But do get used to moving around in your kicks.

 

Yoga

Ready to give your feet a break? Toss your heels to the side and grab a mat. Crank out a 20-minute yoga workout. It’ll help you strengthen your core and work on your balance—both of which will keep you stable in stilettos. Bonus? Even after just one yoga session, you’ll be standing taller, making your bod look better than ever.

 

Squats ‘n’ lunges

These classic workout moves are perfect for toning your gams without bulking up too much. Do some squats while watching holiday classics on the tube, and lunge your way around the house while your favorite Christmas cookies are in the oven.

 

Kick up the cardio

Cardio will help you burn calories, letting you munch away guilt-free on holiday snacks. Better than that, though, is cardio’s ability to build your endurance. Slip on a hoodie and grab a jump rope or your bike, then get busy for a half hour. You’ll feel better, you’ll sleep better and you’ll be able to dance the night away without pausing to catch your breath.

 

What’s your secret to rocking sky-high heels, sweeties?

Would you rather hang with friends than find time to exercise? Why not combine the two and get a bunch of friends to go on a walk or bike ride around town. 
 
You let her BFF borrow your fave top for a party last Saturday but when she returns it, it looks nothing like the top you remember buying. It has holes, stains and only one shoulder. What do you say to your gal pal?
