What he said made sense but I for one have always liked to buck ridiculous trends.
I ran to catch a bus in new high heels once. That was enough. I could not wear those shoes the rest of the day.
It is just not that cute when a woman has to carry her shoes because they are cute but they hurt her feet. Also who wants to be unstable or worse damaging their feet for a few fleeting hours of looking pretty?
Sarah Jessica Parker of SITC fame says years of wearing crazy high heels caused her foot to grow extra bone.
I should think the rest of us would want to avoid that at all costs.
This does not mean we must resign ourselves to a life time of flats, flip flops and sneakers.
There are many fashions and heel types plus heights in between flat and too high with a point.
I love a wedge heel or other more forgiving and stable shapes.
There is also nothing wrong with color choices when it comes to foot wear.
Summer is a time to get those pedicures and show off the toes.
Scrub the heels and give the feet a nice soak in your down time.
Wear something that can last all day.
Search and buy the size of shoe or sandal you need. Maybe you need a long or a wide shoe. It is okay to be honest about that.
If the soles of foot wear are just unbearable maybe some comfy inserts are the answer.
For some shoes that are a might too tight you can try this old trick my grandmother used to use on her church shoes:
Wet and crumple a sheet or so of news paper
Stuff it in the toe of the shoe
Allow to dry
It will expand as it does
This can loosen the fit of the shoe
Now do not ask me if this only works on expensive shoes, leather or whatever.
We never got that far into discussions grandmother and I. She had her old ways and I just liked to hang around her.
