My feet don’t get along with most shoes. They throb plaintatively with anything too tight, and I can barely get through a full day with pumps on. It doesn’t help that my left foot is adorned with a gumball sized bunion I’ve nicknamed “Bunita,” which throws the equivalent of a jeweled encrusted blackberry to my leg if I ever try to get too cute.
I did a little research on foot pain and found that high heels only exacerbate foot problems. Also, Dr. Martin Ellman, quoted in a story I found on the Mayo Clinic website, said that heels should only be worn on special occasions ( a night out, special occasions, etc).
With the weather getting cool (and Ugg boots becoming a fashion faux pas), I’m thinking that sleek sophisticated flat boots might be the way to go.
I decided to do a little search online for cute styles.
I love this Sunny Plain Mid Shaft boot by Frye:
And the short version is very cute as well:
These mustard colored flats from Anthropologie are a little out there, but I think the proper person could rock ’em well
These Nike G Series Cole Haan’s (that are SO on my Xmas wish list) are dressy enough to wear with a skirt:
As are these $80 gems by Gabriella Rocha:
