Can you walk in them? How do you manage? Do you wear them on a daily basis, or only occasionally?
A couple of years ago, I wore extremely high platform shoes (about 6"+) every day, rain or shine, work or play, pain or not. This left my feet severely angry at me for a while.
Now, I wear Doc Marten boots daily to work, & despite their steel toes & rugged exterior, I find them incredibly supportive & comfortable. But I'm trying to re-develop my girly side, so I've recently bought a couple of pairs of platform/wedge sandals, in keeping with the dictates of recent fashion trends.
I'm having a hell of a time walking in them! They're not astronomically high (about 4"), but for some reason they either cause me horrible blisters on the soles or sides of my feet, cut into my toes, or pain me in some other way.
Have I become spoiled by wearing sensible shoes, or am I missing something, some key element of girliness that would allow me to enjoy wearing these things? Are heels actually supposed to be painful to wear?
