High heels symbolize a lot in America: fashion, status, and attractiveness.
But, I can’t wear ‘em. My low vision paired with heels feels risky. Before my eye issues, I couldn’t wear them for much longer than an hour anyway. Toes cramp. The back aches. Instead of maintaining a vibrant bloom, my posture sags into a wilted flower. Fail.
I’m into simplifying. What footwear looks neat and still gets me around? I choose flats for my feet.
Don’t get me wrong; I love shoes. But, I love happy footies more than I love the extra inches. I can watch reruns of Sex and the City as much as I want to get my wild shoe fix. Sadly, SJP paid dearly for her stiletto habit. Ouch.
I’m not the most powerful-looking woman out there. Big deal. Flats offer me reliability, comfort, and cuteness. Yes, please!
