What is it about shoes that makes us women feel so,well- crazy?When we spot a certain shoe that stimulates our 'shoe pallette'-it's instant butterflies; it's the feeling of falling in love/lust-MUST.HAVE.IT!!Something a man can definitely never understand.And I never try to justify it.I get why men are so confused over our love of shoes.It's a material object that we stick our foot into whether it feels good or not(and of course the REAL pretty ones are usually the NOT)and we wear them despite that fact that our feet grow massive sores and bulges until they bleed and we walk funny!BUT...they just LOOK SO PRETTY!And make you feel sexy.Taller.Slimmer.Stylin.Powerful.It's something they can't have. Now I'm no 'girly girl' but when it comes to clothing and shoes this is where all my tomboy qualities go right out the window.
One thing I know for sure is LONG LIVE the WEDGE heel! I am so sick of every second season hearing that this particular shoe style is IN...then the next OUT.Only to be BACK in the next season.To me the wedge heel is a classic right up there with the stiletto.It's been around as long ago as the 30s-Wedges grew in popularity during World War II because of the lack of leather and rubber available in the United States. Leather and rubber were needed for the war effort. The fashion of the time called for height and wedges offered height and let's face it MUCH easier to walk in than skinny heels.Hence the longevity and popularity of this style.
So don't be throwing those wedges in the back of your closet for long; to me they are always a more comfortable and smart option for everyday wear that give you the fashion and height of a stiletto but without the discomfort.And just a classic right up there with the stiletto...
