Depends or stay near a bathroom. You wont be able to get around too fast.

luketheduke8 :  I would like to see a photo of your Ballet high heel boots and you wearing them. I am lucky to be able to stand in mine.

Cali is correct. Unless you have experience in walking in them like Alexandra Potter you are not going far. Have fun and let us

know how it turns out.    spikesmike

The other thing is how long have you worn them already. What feels fine at hour 3 might be a little irritated at hour 10 and raging inferno at hour 20. Just be careful.

Good luck, I've just recently got a pair of those and they stress the tendons on the front of my ankle within 30 minutes even without walking. Keep us updated :)

Botox injections in the tips of all toes.

Nurofen gel applied to the feet.

Pain killers and 2 bottles of scotch.

?

 

Seriously 24 hrs is a mission, I've spent maybe 4hrs in mine and that is ludicrously hard work! I'd take my hat off to anyone who can do 8hrs let alone 24! Be careful would be my advice.

Definitely take it slow, practice and build your way up to that over time.  Use ballet toe padding / protectors.  I have had a couple of different pairs of ballet heels and have only had limited success walking for more than like 5-10 minutes at a time and only got to maybe 2-3 hours wearing them continuously and that was brutal.  Listen to your body, you can seriously hurt yourself if you try to push yourself too hard.

I do have to say I love those "beginner" ballet boots you have and would love to get a pair myself.  With those, you just might be able to get to your goal, but still, take it easy and if you feel pain... stop. :)  Anyway, good luck!
