Flat Shoes
How I Love Thee

When I was in my early and mid 20's I would suffer the consequences of walking miles upon miles on = > 3" heels. I had blisters, swollen feet, corns, cuts, and plantar fasciitis. I inevitably started to accept flat shoes (heel = < 1.5") a few years ago when we started traveling and walking everywhere to explore.  I got used to wearing flats and likewise got used to accepting how short I am next to my 6'7 husband. I still wear my platforms and stilettos every now and then - I could never give them up - but the difference now is that I'm willing to pay a little more for comfortable heels. In conclusion, I love flat shoes because I no longer suffer and my feet love me. The good news is that there are millions of gorgeous flat shoes out there for me to gawk upon and one day give a home to.

  1. I have a hard time reminding myself to buy flats when I'm at the store. Because I will wear them more than I wear heels. But I still love heels...

  2. I know exactly what you mean MH. :-) Sometimes I unintentionally skip the shoe department for the home section.
