Running in high heels

As much as I love heels, sometimes they can be a downright pain in the heel, toes and balls of your feet. Especially if you’re a regular person going about your business without a car to take you from place to place. Yesterday I found myself in my lovely new five inch platform hiker boots roaming around London looking for a cinema showing Black Swan which wasn’t sold out. Walking from Oxford Circus to Soho and then Haymarket via Chinatown and Leicester square could have been disaster, especially after a day at work, but these gorgeous heels were super comfy. I think that’s what you call a fashion Holy Grail – killer heels without the killer.

    I've got some heels that I can walk in for a whole day with total comfort. Wish they were all like that!

    I don't often wear heels for that reason except on a night out. I have a comfy pair of boots from Topshop, not sure I could walk that far in them thought. I love yours, they look great.

    Oh wow those boots are incredible! And comfy too!? I'm very jealous!About the pearl nail art – they actually stayed on really well, and took a bit of effort when I toook them off last night. I just used a good topcoat over them and they stuck tight.

    WOW! I have to say just by looking at them I would say they don't look comfy so even better. They are so versatile too, good find m'dear.Carol
