How to Walk in High Heels in Grass

If you’ve worn heels before to a prom, wedding, outdoor occasion, or sporting event, you know that the struggle is real:


Walking in high heels in grass is difficult!  


It can even impossible at times, if you’d like to prevent mud, grass and water stains on your favorite pair of pumps. Even if your prom or wedding isn’t outdoors, most brides, prom couples and other outdoor heel wearing fanatics prefer to have their photos taken on the grass, under a nice tree or in a beautiful setting that doesn’t always have a flat cement path to get you there and back.

As you struggle to keep your balance in your stilettos, you accidentally drive a spike through the ground, submerging your shoes in 2 or more inches of wet mud and grass. Were your heels pure white or light colored? Well now they’ve got lawn scented accent colors of green, yellow and brown. If your heels were fabric you’re in for an even bigger treat. Once the moisture of the grass and dirt saturates into the cloth, the water travels up the heel of the shoe further discoloring it with brown and green pigments.

This is twice as concerning in areas like Florida or western Europe that tend to get lots of rainfall keeping lawns soft and heels sinkable. We’ve all spent good money on shoes, so destroying them is shameful.


The Solution to Wearing High Heels in Grass

How do you really walk well in high heels in grass? When it comes to grass in your walking heels, you’ve really only got 3 options.


  1. Don’t wear them or wear very thick heels (ew).


This is really not an option. Wearing flats or thick clunky heels with a beautiful fancy gown or wedding dress, or even a flirty little sun dress completely ruins your look from head to toe. There is nothing more flattering than a beautiful and elegant pair of matching heels to compliment you on your big day and refusing to wear that coveted pair of Christian Louboutins or Jimmy Choos that take your outfit to the next level, would just be a sin.  


  1. Walk on your toes.


It may help for walking in a quick patch of grass here and there but this is not a practical solution, especially when wedding photos, outdoor weddings and outdoor events can take hours. By lifting your heel out of the ground and placing all of your weight onto your toes you can avoid letting your heels sink into the grass and mud temporarily, but at the expense of your burning quad and calf muscles. You’re making an already challenging shoe to walk in even more difficult.
