the heel issue

last week, the suburban queen posted about a pair of heeled boots which she doesn't wear very often as they inflict pain and discomfort. i commented then that two years ago, i bought my first pair of heeled boots and started training, and that now heels up to 6-7cm are quite alright for me: the boots, the red and the black pumps are all around that height. the converse and ballet flats obviously not.



















well, yesterday i felt rather painfully that this is only half true.. i am able to walk in 6-7cm heels, but i never said for how long i can walk in them. as long as i use my bike and sit a lot in the intervals between taking me from a to b, there really is no problem. but. when taking a city stroll of approximately 3h, i am still able to walk in boots with 6cm heels (that would be the boots to the left on the picture), but my feet are killing me! well, i guess people usually don't just walk for 3h in the city in heels, so i guess i can still say that i don't have problems with 6-7cm heels...

oh, and i never said i could walk in penny-heels. still training those as well. that would be the black shoes, the second pair from the right, on the picture.

and no - this is not my complete collection of shoes. i am right now staying in oslo for two weeks, whereas the rest of the collection, that is, the larger part, stayed at home.

heh det är aldrig lätt med klackar! Jag har avanserat till 9cm nu, mycket onda fötter av annat än sittande. men det finns så många fina i garderoben så...

Ich kann einen ganzen Tag auch nicht mit 7-cm-Heels überstehen...wenn ich nur n paar Vorlesungen hab, ist das was anderes, aber wenn ich richtig unterwegs bin und von A nach B laufen muss...da liebe ich meine flacheren Absatzschuhe!

Also ich kann locker um die 5 Stunden mit Absätzen bis zu 9 cm laufen - ohne Schmerzen. Dafür fange ich in flachen Schuhen immer an zu stolpern!
