WHAT'S BETTER THAN A GREAT FRIEND?
A great friend who has the same shoe size as you!
Why is it that something that can make you feel so chic, so tall, so elegant and so feminine can make you feel so darn uncomfortable! Yes I'm talking about those fashion essentials that make your feet burn on a night out or a day out shopping - 5-inch heels!
I don't really own a pair of heels that I can describe as being comfortable, even my wedges, which tend to give your feet that extra bit of support, can give me grief when I've worn them for over 2 hours. Nonetheless, in terms of shoes I'm a masochist; I choose fashion and style over comfort and practicality and just suffer the consequences when I gently ease them off my achy feet.
Designer shoes: don't think that because they are designer and cost more than a holiday to Europe that they will feel any more like velvet on your feet, they are just as bad and in my experience worse; my Louboutins are among the most uncomfortable shoes I own.
My girl and I went out on Friday night and she wore her new pink Dune wedges (seen in the photos above). They caused her so much pain that despite only wearing them once, she decided she never wanted to see them again; it was almost as though she had developed an aversion to them. What happened next was bittersweet. When I slid my feet in to her pink beauties (in a manner similar to how I imagine Cinderella to have slid her feet in to her glass slippers), the inevitable happened: my friend said goodbye to a pair of shoes that she once adored as they sat pretty in her Dune box, but I said hello to a new pair of wedges that now sit pretty in my shoe 'closet' - boom!
