What is your top tip for women who want to walk well in heels?
Women deserve to feel fabulous and walk with grace, elegance and ease, and I have the solution to high heels heaven for ladies! Many women feel they can’t walk in heels and are usually not confident enough to wear them because they feel they are too heavy and don’t want to appear clumsy by walking heavily in them. Walking in high heels well will instil confidence and ignite the inner goddess in any woman if she knows how!

How important is the right pair of shoes for having confidence?
Having the right pair is imperative to walking well in heels! If a shoe appears unstable it will not support you and you will find that you struggle. The best heels must be the correct size.
