My SOLE Mate
Ah… stilettos.As a fashion-conscious woman, I just can’t get enough.I slip my feet into these lovely man-made treasures and my limbs are instantaneously elongated.As my body lengthens and my frumpiness dispels, my feared fate of living my life as a Danny Devito stand-in is nothing more than a fleeting thought of someone I once knew.I am poised, confident—PROPORTIONED.How could I possibly want to wear something else when I look and feel so good?Then, like a lot of things in life, the wonderment fades and reality sets in: Here comes the pain.
As the hours pass, my calves begin to feel like they’re being mercilessly crushed by some unseen force.Then, I begin to limp as the feeling of needles being driven into the balls of my feet become almost too much to bear.Suddenly, long legs and a perkier behind don’t seem to matter so much anymore.All I care about is a fluffy pair of slippers (a ‘la Snooki) and a place to prop my feet.For years, this has always been the ending to my night and I KNOW I am not alone.Even though my endurance has built up considerably over time, I am never completely pain-free.I refuse; absolutely REFUSE to walk the streets barefooted.Until recently, I thought my march of misery would always be a tolerated part of my image regime, much like waxing: Something I don’t look forward to, but continue to endure.Luckily, my painful promenade has come to a halt and couldn’t be more thrilled.
Allow me to introduce Cityslips.“What are Cityslips,” you ask?They are a pair of travel flats that roll up small enough to fit inside your purse.Just when you thought they couldn’t get any better, the case unfolds into a tote bag large enough to carry your heels!They come in black, gold, and silver.Or, if you need a bit more “kick,” get them in snakeskin!I didn’t think it was possible, but Cityslips one-upped themselves and came out with an adorable line called Aftersoles, for the individuals that want to spice things up with some flash.Cityslips and Aftersoles are fab and I am a fan!At under $30.00, there is no need to be a martyr.Go out and buy a pair—your feet deserve it.
