I read Grit & Glamour’s post Are You A Heels Kind Of Girl? with interest.
Regular readers will know that I am a flats’ lover through and through. But I wasn’t always. At just over 5 foot tall, in my late teens and early 20s, I practically lived in heels. They made me taller and, I thought, far more glamorous and grown up.
Then I moved to Italy.
A country known for its chic and elegance. Yes. But the town I found myself living in was almost entirely paved with cobbles. After just one or two attempts, I quickly realised that I was going to have to give up my precious heels for 12 months.
And after 12 months I seemed to have lost my love of heels and had discovered the comfort and convenience of flat shoes.
In the past few years I’ve been finding my heels mojo and have been quietly and quickly accruing pair after pair of sexy and stylish heels.
V at Grit & Glamour talks about the iconic Louboutin. The shape, the red sole, the heel height. Everything about the Louboutin is classic. But, according to V, they are not comfortable. I’ll take her word on that as I have yet to add a pair to my shoe rack.
My favorites? Clarks’ heels are my favourites for sure. Their specially designed soft wear soles give the wearer a layer of luxurious padding between the foot and the pavement, making them the ultimate in comfort.
Why heels? They make me taller. They make me feel grown up. They make me feel put together and chic. They make me feel more elegant.
The higher, the better.
The brighter, the better.
Yes, I can’t get anywhere quickly. But I take every step with purpose and poise.
