While New York Fashion Week's Fall 2014 shows as a whole had a serious shortage of high heels, a number of major designers included impressively towering shoes amidst the abundance of flats. On the catwalk, Erin Fetherston's dainty designs paired nicely with clear-sided pumps, while Marchesa featured intricate, strappy sandals. The season's street style stars and front row celebrities proved that the craziest-and at times, most uncomfortable-high heels are far from dead. While we'll happily slip into a beautiful pair of towering heels any day, we figured we could use a few tips from those in the fashion business who know the shoes best.

To that end, we asked around throughout NYFW for models' and celebrities' tried-and-true tips for how to walk in sky-high heels. Click through the slideshow above for your go-to guide for getting around in stilettos, and you'll be strutting it like a pro in no time.
