I feel as if these boots and I started out on the wrong food (pun intended). First off, I bought them at a Zara in Europe last summer and when I saw them in my local store, they were about $30 less than what I paid (I’m not sure why I didn’t think that they’d be available in the States and cheaper due to the exchange rate, for that matter). Next, I came to realize that these innocent-looking wedges were excruciatingly painful (disclaimer: I’m somewhat of a baby when it comes to uncomfortable shoes). I had given up hope until the kind ladies at Stiletto Hardware sent me some cushions for my shoes.
When I wore these wedges the other day, I had only walked a few blocks when I was ready to give up all hope. I got on the train and inserted the ball-of-foot cushions into my boots (I couldn’t wait until I got to work and luckily it was empty) and, I kid you not, ended up wearing the shoes all day in pure comfort. I even went straight out after work and hardly noticed that I was wearing the boots all day/night. I think I’ll be able to revive other uncomfortable shoes that are sitting in my closet from here on out. (PS. Anh from 9to5Chic uses them too!)
