Default Heels to Die For

I know we all have a favorite pair of **** me shoes. Describe yours.

Mine are a black, 4" heel. They have a strap that goes around the heel to the outside of the foot, another strap over the toes and a thinner strap cross the top of the foot. I feel so feminine when I wear these shoes. My nice, long stride becomes shorter, the hips sway, the smile gets softer. I LOVE those shoes.

LOL ... I like heels. They're actually more comfortable to me than most flats.

Red, men used to wear heels, but not the high spike kind.

I think it would be great if you wore your high heels to visit Avista. I am sure she will appreciate it.

When my hubby does your hair, you can wear your heels and fancy fish net stockings, if you have them.

This is a true story, you can't make this one up. My husband after seeing his Oncologist for the first time, first thing he said about her - wears spikes with fancy stockings. Obviously they made a definite impression on him.

I'm afraid I've finally crossed the line. Last summer for the wedding of one of my sons, I had a choice between 2 pairs of heels. Either pair would have been fine. One pair was strappy, sexy, wonderful ... and not so comfortable. The other pair was okay, little chunkier heel, still a sandal but not what you would call strappy, and comfortable. Guess which pair I chose? Sigh. 2 years ago I never would have gone for comfort over wonderful.

A couple of years ago I had Plantar Facitis. (sp) For those of you who have never had it, it is a terrible foot pain. It was weeks before it disappeared. I never want it again, and from that time forward have not worn high heels.

Anyone else out there had this condition.

Yes, I had that heel spur thing for over a year...
Had a few cortizone shots in my heel (which really didn't help) and the shots hurt like the devil. And did all those foot exercises with the towel and on the stairs...
But it finally just went away, thank goodness!!!
Never want that again!!!
And pretty much quit wearing heels after that also. Tho I love the look of them.
But,,, Comfort became KING!!

Avista, I've had plantar facitis (from exercising too much!!). It lasted for months, not weeks! Very painful. See girls, exercise can be baaaaaaad.

No more 3 inch heels for me, I make sure to wear something always with arch support.
Boring I know, but necessary. But the good news is that you can get arch supports for dressy sandals with heels. ;D
