Rarely do I wear heels. While I love the look and the height they give me (I’m only 5’4″), I just can’t wear them anymore without hating every minute I have them on. I’ve never found a pair that were comfortable for more than an hour.
I fell. Yep, I fell hard and my body did not react in a positive way. I was wearing my 4″ Louboutin pumps in Dallas and miss stepped going up a curb. I didn’t think my knees, hips and palms were ever going to recover. I honestly believe that young children bounce when they fall. This 50 year old woman definitely didn’t bounce.
I wear progressive lens bifocal glasses. Obviously the bottom is magnified for reading and the top is for distance. When I look down to see where I’m placing my steps, the ground looks higher than it really is. This makes going down stairs a major ordeal and I must hold on to railings. I think this can be related to my mishap with heels in #1. The curb was not actually where I thought it was.
I get really grouchy when my feet hurt. Wedging my feet into heels and having them withstand hours of being in a strange vertical position is painful. I own handcrafted Italian leather shoes and my feet still hurt. My only explanation is that I think I have a bad attitude just putting them on my feet due to #1.
The older they are, the harder they fall….or maybe the harder it is to recover.
Please tell me that secretly you feel this way about heels, but you’re afraid to admit it out loud?
