How can I get better at walking in heels? I usually wear 5

I started with 5 "heels and the lowest I have is 4.5". So for me, the attraction and love of heels would overcome all the difficulties, including discomfort and balance.

With time, practice and experience, I would advise the following:

I only have 5 "or higher heels and while most of my shoes have a rigid platform, I have a pair of 4.5" high without platforms. After all the experiments I have found that for me the platforms do the trick. It gives the stiffness and stability I wanted, and it reduces the pitch a bit and makes them more comfortable for me. Now I wear 6 "heels with 1" platform all day, go for a mile in them and still don't want to take them off.
