{Foot Fetish}

How many of you have a pair of pumps that you love but either: a) slip out of easily, b) hurt your heels, or c) could use a little cushion? Yes, much to my sweetheart's confusion as to why we women willingly put ourselves in this kind of situation, it happens. Case in Point: A couple of years ago I went outlet shopping & fell in love with a pair of heels that were a little too big for me. I ignored this fact & bought the shoes in hopes that they would magically fit perfectly when I got home. Major fail. That summer, I went on a 4th of July getaway to upstate New York and happened to come across an adorable little shop in Skaneateles that had just what I needed to keep my feet from sliding out!

Both inserts work great with my shoes and made a world of difference; they're great for adding comfort to your favorite pair of footwear! However, these fashionable little numbers can add up quickly! Note to Self: stick to shoes in your size & your size only. So when I was recently out shoe shopping and saw a pair of gel heel inserts on sale, I went ahead & bought myself a pair to try out:

Comfort is always numero uno in my book. And since we're on the topic of wearing high heels & making them as comfy as possible, does anyone know about or have a pair of Dr. Scholl's fast flats?! I spend the majority of my weekends traipsing around a city, so after hours on my feet (not to mention if I go out in heels at night), I want nothing more than for the metro to get to my stop so I can go home & relax. That is where darling Dr. Scholl comes in:

These little black flats can be folded up & stored right in your handbag! Perfect to put on after a night out on the town or a long day in the office. How have I missed seeing these in the foot care aisle of my local drugstores? If anyone out there has these and loves/hates them, let me know! Because these magical slip-ons are calling my name :)
