Head Over Heals
Fall in love with your footwear with these surprisingly comfortable designer shoes.
“I have too many shoes!” A declaration no modern woman has spoken. “I have too many shoes that make me want to scream in agony,” on the other hand, is a universal dilemma. Comfort is rarely linked with sex appeal, and the torment of high heels is probably the most excruciating testament to the longevity of the “no pain, no gain’ philosophy in the name of physical beauty.
We all know that living in pain is not really living at all, in addition to the host of medical and posture issues that can arise from poorly constructed shoes. Rest assured, you indeed can have it all with these chic designer shoes that allow you to dance all night, chase down a cab, or walk the red carpet and be ready to do it all over again.
