How To Measure Your Feet Length
December 26, 2010
To know how long your feet is, below is a simple way to measure. We understand that most people have feet that come with different lengths between their right and left foot, therefore always measure both of your foot, and use the larger of the two as your feet length standard.
Happy measuring! :)
- Sit with your foot firmly on the floor, and your leg bent slightly forward so that your shin is slightly in front of your ankle. Trace the outline of your foot on top of a piece of paper. While tracing, hold the pencil or pen upright and perpendicular to the paper, do not hold it at an angle.
- Use your pencil to draw straight lines touching the outermost points at the top, bottom, and both sides of the outline.
- Use your ruler or measuring tape to measure the length from the bottom line to the top line that you drew in step 2.
Repeat these steps for your other foot, and use the larger measurement of the two.
After measuring your feet length and matching it with our UP sizes, there is also one more thing to be considered, which is feet width.
- Feet width can be classified as slim, normal, wide, and very wide.
- If you consider your feet as "wide" or "very wide", we advise you to go 1 size bigger.
To ensure you select the right size, kindly consult with us further via email at [email protected]

How to walk in heels...
December 12, 2010
The ability to walk in heels comes naturally after regular use and practice...but there's never any harm to learn the theories, right? Here are some tips on how to best walk in heels...:)
- Step with your heel down first, then let the sole follow quickly and smoothly.
- Walk with your toes pointing straight ahead or as close to straight ahead as possible.
- Swing your arms as you walk for balance.
- Keep your legs straight, close and parallel.
- Take smooth, even steps; consider shortening your stride a bit.
- When climbing stairs, make sure both sole and heel land together firmly and simultaneously on each step. When descending stairs, only the sole of the shoe needs to be planted on each step.
- Avoid walking on mud, grass, sand, gravel and grated surfaces, on which you can slip or sink. When in doubt, take off your heels and carry them across such questionable surfaces in your bare feet.
Happy heel-ing, girls! :)
Don't Drive Wearing Heels
December 04, 2010
We might be heels lovers, but there are times when we are better off without them. In this case, that would be when we're DRIVING.
Did you know that...
80% of female drivers wear improper footwear while driving.
66% admitted that they chose to wear high heels at the wheel.
10% admitted having an accident or "near-miss" because their heels had got stuck between or under the pedals.
So girls, please be wise and take care not only of your safety, but others too. NEVER wear your heels while driving. You can either go barefoot, or always have a pair of flat shoes inside your car to wear while driving. Safe driving, girls!
