I have finally decided to limit wearing heels. I am currently wearing a wedge sandals with platform front... it still has heels but it is evened out by the platform. So much for my trying to defend myself. Anyway, I will try to stick to low heeled footwear from now on. I have actually put my 3-in heels inside their boxes to give them some rest and my feet to experience other soles. My current shoe shopping objective is to look for flats. I have found these blue (my favorite color) Marc Jacobs sandals with bejeweled flower embellishment that is currently on sale for $360 (previously $749) at Zappos. Lovely!
