|My New Shoe|
The bottom line according to the WhoWhatWear article is: "Wear heels as infrequently as possible, and do plenty of foot stretches after you take them off."
I also do foot stretches before I wear heels and that seems to help.
Wearing high heels is a crap shoot. It is impossible to know how a pair of heels will work for you.
I have heels that work well ― I can wear them all day long without a problem. They are shoes that give some women pause when they see me wearing them. They wonder how anyone can manage to walk in such skyscrapers.
On the other hand, I have heels that are dead ringers for my comfortable heels, but they become unwearable after a few hours. Go figure.
Here are some of my most recent heel purchases that have worked well.
Payless Janine pointy toe pump with a three-inch heel. I was so happy with the Janine that I ordered additional pairs in a variety of colors.
Payless Carmen round toe pump. This three-inch high heel is basically the round toe version of the Janine. It is available in over a dozen colors and like the Janine, I ordered more than one pair.
Nine West Love Fury pointy-toe platform pump with all leather upper, 4-1/2-inch heel and 3/4-inch platform. These skyscrapers are no longer available from Nine West, but you may still find them in other outlets.
By the way, I use Insolia inserts in all my high heels. They were recommended to me years ago by a girl who loves high heels. Since they worked so well for her, I gave them a try and found that they worked well for me, too!
So go trip the light fantastic in comfort!
