What makes us so happy when we buy shoes? Why is it not the same with our other purchases such as food or drinks? Why do we want to step on the ground with beautiful creations?
The answer is simple.. We obviously want to travel in style.. Shoes can make us taller, feel comfortable, give us confidence, power and beauty.. High heels can even make our legs look thinner and toned.. Don’t you think we expect too much from shoes? Be comfortable, beautiful, high or flat, the right price, made out of the right material and from the right brand.. I guess that is fashion for you in a nutshell..
The days we suffer for wearing high heels.. The pain from standing up for too long with 12cm high heels.. Every city woman gets a taste of this pain at least once.. However, we never give up.. Everyday we are lured back into wearing those carefully picked heels..
Even though I am saying ‘we’ in this article, I never wear heels. I only own one pair and they are pushed right back in the shoe cupboard.. My height is 179cm so I guess I can get away with not wearing heels.. Don’t get me wrong, I love high heels.. And I would love to be able to wear them.. But one, I can’t walk in them and two I feel like a tower above everyone when I wear those 9+cm high heels.. Maybe one day i will get used to it.. And my flat shoes and boots will be replaced by heels.. Who knows?
So, does height matter? I don’t think so.. As long as the shoes make us feel the way we want them to their job is complete..
