Crazy about Shoes
It all began with Cinderella's Slippers...

High fashion, expensive foot pain

Manolo Blahnik's Shiny Sequin Pumps (Oro -champagne color) are fantastic looking shoes which are great for 'toe cleavage' and compliments but not great for comfort. I've worn my manolo's 5 or 6 times and each time I've had to remove them because they cause eye watering pain. You would think that $600 heels (the brand best known from the HBO show "Sex in the City") would be bearable to don...nope. I wear a size 36 (size 6 US) and my feet are naturally high arched which you'd think, intrinsically, high fashion, uber expensive shoes would accommodate. Again, this is not the case.

I am disappointed to say that the Manolo Blahnik-Shiny Sequin Pump is uncomfortable to wear and the only saving graces are 1) they're Manolo's and 2) they look damn good.

THOSE SHOES ARE HOT! I hate it when they are uncomfortable though..although it still doesn't deter me from buying them.... such a sucker for things that look pretty! =) Good to know they're not the most comfy though.
