I used to shop in outfits like this…four-inch platform sandals, cute, cute, cute!
OK, I know it’s Heidi Montag Pratt, but still.
Those were the days! Now I have to dress for (I can’t believe I’m writing it) comfort. I have a two-block walk to the train station on pavement that is varying degrees of even. Then I have a walk from the train station to my shopping destination that involves two massive escalators, more uneven pavement, and about the equivalent three blocks before I even start the shopping walk.
If I were smart, I’d just go in my Nike Navinas and training gear. This is when I just can’t DO IT. Shopping is about the only time I get to wear clothes you’re not meant to sweat in, so I relish the opportunity to look like a woman. But my shoes and my feet, dude, they are paying the price.
Enjoy your platforms, Heidi!
