For most of my adult life I have been a high heels person. Tight jeans, cute top, and high pumps were always my go-to look for when I needed to look smart.
All that changed when the snubnose entered my life. I spent all of my pregnancy in comfortable, sensible flats, and have continued doing so afterwards. After all you look pretty stupid running after a toddler in high heels ;).
But whenever I look through old photos, I can’t help but sigh in envy and wonder if my glory days of rocking heels were over. It does seem like it because I have had to pretty much throw out my existing heels because after the snubnose; my feet had inexplicably expanded, and my arches had dropped after having a baby. Btw, is this common after having a child?
Anyway, when I visited US last month I was just too tempted by the variety of high heels available in the stores. I eventually in a moment of spring madness succumbed to these awesome shoes on sale (only after checking with someone who has them whether they are really comfortable enough :)).
These shoes fit amazingly well, and almost magically reduce the size of my feet…something I have always felt conscious about. But, my poor feet alas are still struggling to get used to the height of the heels. I wore them for about a couple of hours, and when I removed them, I could really tell that my calves and toes had had a rough time of it.
Anyway, fear not that these shoes are a wasted effort. I went online and found all these helpful links that explain how you can slowly start to ease yourself into high heels.
I am definitely going to keep trying. I mean, at the end of the day these are only wedges. How difficult can it be?
Wish me luck, y’all 🙂
