So heels or flats? For the trip to London tomorrow?
This discussion was had at length on Sunday evening.
“Perfect opportunity to wear my beautiful blue suede hotter shoes!” What do you think?
“Well you could – they’ll look dead smart and supposed to be very comfortable – excellent test of the manufacturers claim…… But you haven’t worn heels for a long time, and you’ll be a long way from home if your feet start hurting and you can hardly use the underground in just your socks”
“Oh come on – you make me sound like a little old lady! It’s not that long ago I wore heels everyday! Stop worrying…..”
“Well don’t say I didn’t warn you! And I will do the I told you so dance if I’m right!”
And so the discussion continued…. Refusing to back down in front of my opponent I wore my blue suede shoes all the way to London.
I walked to the station, the long hike across Stratford station (which goes on for ever!) and standing on the underground, important meeting at the House of Lords (yes my shoes really did get to go somewhere posh!) and then a walk down the south bank in the sunshine! A busy tube train back – still no seats and a minor delay leading to a run for the train home!
No blisters, no rubbing or sore patches – perfect. Cushioned insoles meant my toes were a as comfy as ever in them all day! I think I’m in love and am now finding any excuse to wear them! (the theatre on Saturday night and a family funeral last week,)
It was a long day, lots of standing, and a jog to station platform towards the end, the shoes are a great fit but the old leg muscles were beginning to complain a little . Faced with a long walk home from the station I thought maybe discretion was the better part of valour – and maybe quick change was in order.
But what did I change into?
Well of course my faithful hotter trainers of course! Comfy and supportive – just what the doctor ordered!
I was sent a pair of Hotter shoes to review – all words and opinions are my own
