Spring and summer are seasons of the year in which women experience a similar type of pain. What is it? Foot pain from high heels.

Usually, the pain from high heels starts off slowly. It's the weird angle of your arched ankles. It's the cramped space of the shoe. It's the swelling of your feet. So how do you combat it? Here's a bit of help.

Below are pain-battling solutions that I use (along with a few friends) while wearing high heels. You can try them too. They are solutions guaranteed to get you through that long date, prom night or gala event. Just:

APPLY AN INSOLIA INSOLE.

Insolia is brand of insoles designed to add comfort to women who wear high heels. How do they do it? By shifting the weight off the balls of the foot and onto the heel area gain. Insolia restores balance and also reduces pain in the back of the legs and ankles.

USE A BLISTER BLOCK BAND-AID.

If you are prone to get blisters on certain parts of your foot from heels, block it. Start by using a Blister Block from Band-Aid. How do you use it? Just as you begin to feel pain, apply this band-aid to the affected area. It will add extra cushion and prevent a blister from growing.

WEAR A COMFY HEEL.

This tip sounds easy, but it isn't. A majority of high heels don't appear to be geared towards comfort. Their creators are only concerned with fashion. So what high heel is comfy? Any high heel that is well padded, has a rounded toe and gives ample room for your feet to breath. A brand to start with is Cole Haan. The comfort of his shoe was even endorsed by Oprah.

SPRITZ ON KOOL 'N FIT FOOT SPRAY.

This spray will help reduce the swelling of your foot. Here's how. After a couple of hours of wearing your heels, take a trip to the bathroom and spray on Kool N'Fit Foot Spray. Wait one minute and slide your shoes back on. This spray will reduce your foot swelling along with pain.

STICK ON PEDA BELLA STRAP STRIPS.

Part of the problem with certain high heels is the straps. These straps cut into your skin. Combat this by applying Peda Bella "Strap Strips" underneath them. They add extra cushion and will help you enjoy your heels.

In conclusion, one or two of these suggestions and you'll be stepping out in high heels with style. You'll look fashionable while feeling no pain.
