today i noticed something
i had crossed a point and hadn't even realized it at the time. so today was when i discovered it and its not really sunk in yet.
essentially i've been training my way up to 4.75-5" heels now for some time. today when i decided to wear an old pair of shoes i simply couldn't. my arch is so defined that any low to mid heel is too uncomfortable to wear. i've crossed that invisible line thats different for everyone so no one exactly knows where it is.
i'm totally fluid and comfortable in 5" wedges i normally wear. i have a few variations on the same basic design that i wear. i decided to a bit dressier and kinkier on tuesday and wore my 5.5" Oxford Courts shoes where noticed that i didn't have to by any stretch think about wearing them. ok, a bit of a lie - stairs i'm always extra careful on. thats just common sense. though for the most part they were as seamless to wear as the wedges.
bizarrely i am still ok on flats. its just anything in between.
so i'll be shopping only for 5"s or higher now which is where i spotted these Zoe wedge heels in clear industrial plastic of some sort. totally useless in winter (i am enquiring about boots btw) and will be added to my 'want' and 'buy' list.
any heel lovers out there please direct me to sites that sell 5"s and hire exclusively. and no 'pleasers' so not count as they they take forever to break in.
