I wasn't always a shoe person (and by shoe I mean heel). It's a love-hate relationship. On one hand, they make even my fat stubby feet look kind of sexy. On the other hand, after an 8 hour day wearing those torturous walking contraptions I can do nothing but sit on the couch because it's too painful to walk even barefoot.
Have you ever seen a model's foot up close? I had to put heels on some of those hooves and let me tell you their feet practically look disfigured- covered with red sores and calluses. Some even look like their toes have been molded into a point.
With that aside, I have learned to cope with the pain and deal with a future of potentially disfigured looking feet. How could I not after looking at some of the shoes from the Spring 2011 runways?!
