Feel tall and empowered with less pain on your foot
Throughout history, shoes with heels have been a staple in many closets. From being first worn by men in the 1700s to being one of the many erotic symbols of the 21st century, high-heeled shoes help create an illusion where the magic lies on the few inches added on the sole. While they help women appear taller, and even improve their posture, wearing high heels can be a challenging and loathsome experience. That’s why finding a perfect pair that puts less pain on the foot is essential for women who want to feel empowered and, well, closer to God.
