The last time I wore heels was during graduation, and years later, I still remember how excruciatingly painful it was to walk around in them. To be fair, though, it had less to do with those beautiful shoes, and more to do with my very hard-to-fit feet. They're wide, they're mismatched (aargh), and they're just not meant for most mass-produced shoe styles other than boots or sneakers. That said, these "high" (a bit of a misnomer) heel slingbacks from Zara have brought about a renewed desire to expand my footwear horizons. They just look so, I don't know, friendly? Fun? Six centimeters of heel height shouldn't be too bad, right?
