See. All throughout the fall, I was faced with the annoyance of having a decent amount of walking in my commute, that wearing high heels is a no go.
In my early 30s, I was Missy High Heels. I would wear them 14 hours per day. I would walk to the T (underground) and really, I was just a high heel bunny. Day in, day out. I have seriously high heels, some almost stripper height, and I adore them. All of them.
After a few years of that, I looked at my feet one day and saw something rather closely resembling this photo:
I was completely shocked. I started googling all kinds of "as seen on tv" contraptions:
This is still what I do today and I am happy to report that without ANY contraption, my toes have readjusted themselves. I do wear heels in the office - all day - but let's face it, 90% of the time I sit on my arse, so it's not a big ask. I also wear them when going out at night, but that's also not for 14 hours a day.
So let's talk about the boots: Last fall I started getting supremely annoyed because I was schlepping my workout clothes, my workout shoes, flats and often heels with me to work every day. So I decided to see if I could find a comfortable boot with a heel that I can commute in and voila! I found the ones above. They are awesome. Granted, I rarely wear them to external business meetings (however, if I have a long walk there, you better believe it) and I still like my proper pointy high heels, but a few days per week, I wear these boots with a opaque black tights and a leather skirt or so. They are so comfortable and they have been a lifesaver to some degree - who wants to go out in the rain and cold in patent leather Kate Spade heels that cost a fortune? Not me! These shoes didn't break the bank and they have done me an awesome service so far. Oh, they are from Clark's.
