The most effective thing that anyone can do in this situation is strengthening and stretching, pumps or high heels are very hard on the feet and can lead to a lot of issues. Strengthening the feet with specific exercises, stretching the feet and back of the legs will go a long way in keeping you in your heels and out of pain or having issues.
A physiotherapist is a good source for getting these exercises as well as looking it up on the internet.
