I know I am not alone in loving high heels. Be it high heel stilettos or high heel shoes, high heel sandals or wedge heel slippers - high heels are a must-have on the fashion list! They are pretty, they accentuate your body to look nice and I love the way they make me look, but I can't stand the way my feet ache at the end of the day! Are you aware of the health hazards of high heels? They can become an ergonomic nightmare, lead to blisters, corns and calluses especially when I go clubbing. But, it's definitely not okay to simply throw off my high heels and head barefoot onto the dance floor. This can be equally or more dangerous if I were to step on broken glass, or have someone else's spiked heel come down squarely on the top of my foot! *ouch*

However, there is a remedy for this common plight among women. As for shopping, nothing beats a pair of comfortable sandals! Sometimes it's hard to find one pair of unique sandals in wide widths; it seems like sandals manufacturers believe that wide width shoes must have extra-wide straps. But if you go to the online stores that specialize in wide width shoes, you'll have better luck finding sexy flat summer sandals that won't make you look like you're wearing bicycle tires on your feet. LOL! I am absolutely crazy about these unique Topshop sandals. They feature an incredibly sexy design and any of them would work wonders with a shorter skirt or dress. I'll keep my high heels just for some special occasions which do not require a lot of walking and standing.

Included are this season's hottest styles for everyone including everything from flat to stiletto heels, and casual flip-flops to dazzling evening sandals. They can perk up a neutral outfit with a pop of color (hot pink, turquoise, lime green), or complement a similarly hued look.



I'm wearing my 3 inch heels out tonight. That's the highest I can deal with!

And, I know someone is going say, "Watch your step! Watch your step!"

sexy legs! haha, that stole my attention after reading!

High heels are sexy and tiring at the same time. Despite wearing 3", I'm barely reaching my hubby's shoulders!

I used to love wearing high heels especially stilettos when I was still in college (we were always wearing corporate attire except for kitchen classes). I'd wear at least 2 inch stiletto type heels. But now, I prefer wearing flats. Especially ballet flats. That's what I've been wearing most of the time now. Although I still have my heels with me, I am more of a pumps person. :)

Seriously, I can't stand wearing heels..
I rarely wear heels and I am always seen with the most comfortable footwear, slippers. :D

Hey Mon! I've given up on wearing heels lah after I injured my ankle and knee. Now I just wear it when I absolutely have to, but even after 5 minutes my leg starts to hurt already. :(

Hi Monica,

am now finally back online. I am slowly getting things back together again. I have to admit though it is a bit of a struggle trying to sleep after all that but guess that should go away in time. Thank you so much for your support and for being there. xoxo it meant a lot for me. :)
