There’s nothing worse than seeing a woman hobbling and wobbling on impossibly high heels. Oh wait, actually there is. That would be me, tottering and walking precariously in wedges that I *THOUGHT* were ultra comfortable but turned out to be Satan’s shoe spawn as I was running into work. I did not want to prolong this pain any longer, so as soon as I got to Euston station, I legged it (or rather, I limped) into Accessorize and grabbed the nearest pair of flat shoes I could find, shoving my credit card at the cashier with a wincing face. Ah, at last, shoe comfort! However, when I got home, I realised I had a shoe conundrum – I already have MANY ballet flats and really don’t need another pair. They are actually a nice pair of navy satin pumps with a slightly almond shaped toe and do look lovely all by themselves but it irked me that I spent some dosh on a pair of shoes that I hadn’t intended to buy in the first place!
So I used some ribbon, leftover buttons, a nifty glue gun to make these velcro shoe stickers. They’re derived from the shoe clip idea except I couldn’t be arsed to find the proper shoe findings and had these juvenile looking velcro spots lying around. If needs be, I can peel off the velcro spot off the shoes. I’m more amazed that half an hour’s work produced what appears to be five different pairs of shoes. Takes away the guilt of my shoe emergency!
P.S. Please excuse the rather unsightly bite marks and scars on my feet. Walking barefoot around the office is apparently not a good idea!
