It is important to stretch after wearing heels in order to give your calf muscles some relief. The yoga classic, Downward Dog lengthens the calf muscles which make this exercise perfect. Ankles take a terrible beating especially in stiletto heels. Exercising by walking on your tiptoes and doing squats, on the BOSU can help strengthen your ankles and prevent serious injury.
