Wearing High Heels Gets Painful After 34 Minutes

  • Pin it

Did you ever actually counted how long you were feeling comfortable while wearing high heels? We recently went out and since I didn’t had anything decent to wear, I went for my boyfriend jeans, you know the ones I was telling you about a while back. The only trouble is I have to wear them with high heels. Or else I’d be trashing the living fiber out of them. And I’d look like a misplaced cowboy.

So I put on some high heeled booties and off we went. It was all good while we were still in the car. Then we got off and started walking. Approximately a half hour later I was desperately scouting around for a place to sit my fashionista self and catch a breath. My feet were killing me! Now, discovering that there’s actually a study saying that the average woman can comfortably stand wearing a new pair of high heeled shoes for about 34 minutes it all became clear as daylight! It wasn’t my post – baby body that would not adjust to wearing high heels. It’s the way things are. High Heels / New Shoes only get you as far as 34 minutes with a real smile on your face. After that, you’re faking it: the comfort, the fashion. Everything. Cinderella much? (Insolia via; photos via)

I thought it was just me!

I now keep flats under my desk, and were flat comfy boots to work. I pull out the heels when I have meetings. I thought I need to see someone about my foot problem, and have been patiently waiting for my benefits to kick in.

The sad thing is, I take all the precautions, all of my high heels are a half size too big (this makes a huge difference), and I have sworn off the pointed toe for good. And still I can’t spend the day in heels anymore.

It is possible to make elegant and wearable high heels. I’ve still some vintage pairs. They’ve the nail heel but are not that ridiculously high and have a nice fit. Female unfriendly, misogynist shoes? They can keep them. Don’t give a damn about Loubs. Can’t afford them either.
I don’t wear that sort of heels. It’s ridiculous. And such a pity my vintage pumps doesn’t look that good anymore. I only keep them to look at them now and then because I’ve such fond memories of these shoes and oh, if they could speak….:-)

These heels are bad news for our back and hips my ladies. Take care!
