Sometimes walking in towering heels can be difficult enough — take a cue from the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ contestant and avoid a mishap with her new secret weapon! Find out how you can avoid an accident next time you step out!

As Maria Menounos continues dancing her heart out on Dancing With the Stars each week, she must do her best to protect her most important asset — her feet! While she’s already suffered a fractured foot, Maria wears special shoe cushions, known as Foot Petals, to keep her focus on her dances moves — and not on having another slip-up! 

Not only do they keep her feet comfortable when she’s tangoing with partner Derek Hough, but they also keep her shoes secure throughout each performance and prevent her from slipping and sliding all over the dance floor!

I’m sure Maria isn’t the only one who has fallen victim to a slippery shoe — and crashing down is definitely not chic! To avoid a tumble next time you wear your towering heels, take a cue from Maria and prep your pumps before you head out.
