i've stepped up my heel training and am now in 5's most days all day now. the 4 inch KR heeled Melissa's I still love but they're feeling to me like flats. i really wish they're were higher but i do wear them in the middle of the night like slippers when i use the bathroom and first thing in the morning before i head out to work.
i was in the bath this morning taking a very leisurely soak and looked down at my feet an noticed the arches are really pronounced. so much so its just the heel and frount of my feet that will ever touch the ground. i've never noticed them to be this way before. i tried to flatten them and they just stayed that way. seems the heel wearing is finally sticking.
i'm not trapped in them yet, but i think its a significant sign.
the 5's are pretty comfortable now and i won another couple of pairs off ebay which i'm just waiting on too arrive. i don't think they're pleaser brand, so they won't need an excessively long breaking in time. so in the meantime i'm also switching over to my 5 1/2 inch oxfords which i could never walk in before, but i can now - but barely.
wow - the difference that extra 1/2 inch makes is amazing - though you really wouldn't think so.
so thats my heel training schedule, 4's to start then most of the day in 5 1/2s and then last few hrs of the evening 5 1/2s.
if your interested in heel training and well heels in general do check out the high heel place message board. they're all really friendly there and i made a new friend who is already stuck in heels and is encouraging me along in my own training.
