Most Helpful Girl
I know exactly what you mean. It's actually more prevalent now than in the winter months. Just yesterday I saw two women wearing the thinnest possible heels -- at least four inches high. They looked like they were walking on eggshells. If they had to suddenly rush or pick up the pace, they'd have to take their shoes off. Other women wear shoes that are just not their size and just bear the pain thinking that they look good.
I've been "burned" by a shoe a couple of times, not because of the heel, but the design and material prevented me from "breaking in" the shoe properly. Because the shoe, in my case, was advertised a certain way, I was able to return it, but it's important not to abuse your feet in that way to avoid permanent damage to your feet, legs, and joints.
Yes, from what I gather, the women who purposely wear these medieval torture devices are doing it to impress by wearing a very carefully engineered outfit. Sure they turn heads, but they can't turn around in their heels, lol. As I keep telling people, waddling precariously in your spindle heels is simply NOT as sexy as striding confidently in your non-spindle heels...
