They resembled these; almost exactly, come to think of it:
I took ten years off of work to raise my family. During that time I chose comfortable footwear. I spent a lot of time around the house in my bare feet. I only wore heels when I went to church.
When I went back to work at Town hall, I wore suits and high heels everyday. Something like this, but with a heel of 3-4 inches:
After I broke my leg in 2007, I got rid of all of my high heels. Frankly, I did not feel comfortable or steady wearing them. And now I have really gotten used to wearing very low-heeled shoes when I go out and spend my time at home in slippers or bare-feet, again.
This morning I received an email from DSW. I could not believe the shoes. Where do you wear these? How do you walk? It is like a disaster waiting to happen. While I did not want to print all of the shoes in their ad, I found a picture representative of what they sell.
I guess you need the really high heel to accommodate the really high platform.
I know that I did not do my body any favors when I was wearing high heels, though they do make your legs look good. I can just imagine the issues that today's women will have as they age if they wear these shoes for any length of time.
Just how high can we go?
