I once worked in a shoe store, and one of the trade magazines said that 90% of women will not admit to their true shoe size ( ? ! ? ! ? ) and commonly buy shoes that are from one half, to one and a half shoe sizes too small.ss
Not me. In fact that's why I readily say most womens shoes are just downright weird looking.
I'll admit, I used to wear heels. Then, I got a job at a place where I probably logged in more than 3 miles a day, walking from place to place. I started wearing flats, and never looked back.
At some point in between I have sat down and tried on shoes.....expensive shoes way over my budget, just to "see". and I was aghast, and immediately took them off. How coud shoes that were hundred of dollars, in my proper size possiblt be so uncomfortable just trying them on an walking a few steps?
If someone says "you have to get used to them, you haven't worn heels for a long time...." Well, what am I supposed to get used to, wearing an apparatus on my feet that misaligns the entire length of my body; calves, thighs, pelvis, back, neck, head, arms?
Why would I want to get "used" to that? I've paid good money over the years getting those parts all in working order. Why would I deliberatly sabotage that work?
I know ehbeth likes her shoes set, so this thread is at least partially a parody, but many womens shoes do far more harm to a persons body that I'm willing to accept.
