高跟鞋在英文里一般说high heels。细高跟鞋可以说stiletto，原意是细短剑，形状纤细并逐渐变尖，因此被用来形象地形容鞋跟极细极高的高跟鞋，一般是浅口鞋（pumps）。稍矮一点的细跟鞋叫kitten heels，15cm以上的恨天高则是sky-high shoes。其他常见的鞋还有平底鞋flat shoes，拖鞋slippers，凉鞋sandals，木屐clogs。
1、I will try a new heel hack every day of the workweek for one week, starting with a no-hack day as my control.
2、I will wear the same pair of heels for each hack.
3、I will stand as long as possible in the heels throughout the day and record the time spent in them.
4、I will try not to cry as I force my feet into these chambers of doom.
Overall thoughts: I lasted longer than I thought but I wouldn’t call it pleasant. My feet hurt and I was really thankful to put on flats, as per usual.
Slip'em on your feet so your toes are separated.
Overall thoughts: THESE HURT and were ugly as hell. I guess with different shoes that were way too big for me, they would work? But my left foot is smaller than my right and it still felt uncomfortable. When I stood up, I yelped. I tried to hang tough in them — but I just couldn’t do it. Not worth the money.
Method: Tape your “ring” and middle toes together to (supposedly) redistribute the weight and pressure points on your feet.
Overall thoughts: Part of me was questioning if I was just being stubborn and wanted to beat my no-hack day. And maybe that was part of it, but genuinely, my feet didn’t hurt. IF I HAD TO, I could’ve kept them on another hour — but I would’ve complained the whole time, and no one wants that.
Method: I read that you can put cotton balls on the under your toes to make them more comfy.
Overall thoughts: These didn’t really make the experience of wearing heels any better or any worse. At first, the cotton balls felt nice on the bottom of my feet. However, by hour two, my toes felt numb and too scrunched. It was OK, but you might as well go with nothing, IMO.

Overall thoughts: While I did appreciate the cushion this provided, the pads kind of pushed my feet out in a weird way and made my foot do that overflowing loaf thing on one side. I thought maybe this would’ve worked better had my shoe been bigger, but as it was, I still had a little room in the back, so I don’t think it would’ve actually made a difference. This definitely made the experience of wearing the heels better since it provided some arch support, but it wasn’t a lifesaving experience.
