For those that may not be as comfortable in heels as Miss Nevada, herself, here are some tips to help you on race day:

  • Wedges offer more stability than stilettos
  • Non-slip stickers added to the bottom of the shoes can increase traction
  • Safety over speed  
  • Running in a heel can put more pressure on your knees - a neoprene sleeve could help decrease pressure on the kneecaps
  • Utilize some type of ankle support (wrap or lace up brace)
  • Be aware of your surroundings - watch for gravel, rocks or holes - be aware of where your feet are hitting the ground as you run
  • Heels must be at least 2 inches high but it is recommended no higher than 2.5 inches

**MNVSO is not responsible for any mishaps that may occur when wearing high heels**
