Heels and Uneven Floors do NOT Mix!

I was in Las Vegas last weekend and had to walk from the hotel to the convention center. The path for the 20 minute walk was a floor that was uneven, shinny, super smooth and made to look like cobblestone. It was TORTURE! Certainly not designed by a woman or even with women in mind. I struggled with each step of my kitten heels (1 1/2 inch) and worried about all the women that tried to walk this walk in real heels!

It brought me back to my trip to Prague and the cobblestone streets which were even difficult to navigate in sneakers!

I think its time more women designed walk ways, shoes and maybe even cities!

  4. Traveling can be the worst, particularly in Europe, everything is 'hard'. Not like here where you can find wood floors and carpet. In Europe it's all stone concrete and marble, tough on the feet. I recommend shoes made especially for walking and support that with cushioned insoles :-)

  5. Very interesting posts and comments. I was doing some research on foot health on behalf of a client and came across this blog.

    I thought I'd leave a link to one of my client's recent media releases as an information item. They've very much about education on foot health as well as manufacturing and selling custom orthotics -

  6. This is a good blog. Keep up all the work. I too love to blog.
