Thinking about participating? Committed to participating?  Experienced participant in YWCA Hanover Safe Home’s Walk A Mile In Her Shoes?  Regardless of your level of experience, here are some helpful hints, tips, and info for a successful mile in women’s shoes!

How to choose the right shoes

How to walk in heels

Where to buy (remember to order early)

Quick Hacks from our inhouse experts:

~Tape your third and fourth toes (counting from the big toe) together— nude medical tape is great, but Scotch tape works in a pinch—to alleviate pain in the ball of your foot.


~Use metatarsal or ball of the foot pads (over the counter)

Metatarsal support pads work by supporting the metatarsal bone, which reduces the pressure on the ball of your foot.

If you have any questions, please call 717-637-2125 and one of our staff will be glad to answer and assist in your quest for shoes for a successful event.

Shop early, register soon, and have fun.

Walking in heels might make pain inevitable,  but doing it with others will ease your suffering. Invite your family, friends, and coworkers to join you and share your best “my aching feet” stories!
