Have you wished you were a bit or a lot taller? I have. Just one inch added to my legs and I’d be so happy. But wearing heels hurt too much ever since I had my two little boys. I never believed the stories of how a mother’s feet would grow a size after each pregnancy. Until, it happened to me. I now affectionately call my feet – Shrek feet. I don’t want to squeeze my Shrek feet into heels anymore. I bought my first pair of Robert Clergerie platform wedges 3.5 years ago and I became obsessed. I own several pairs as I view them as my health/wellness and art investments. I’m much happier and more focused when I have happy feet. I don’t enjoy limping around and hanging onto Theo’s arms for support. I also don’t like taking off my shoes on the dance floor. I also view the shoes as wearable sculptures (well, it makes me feel better about the purchases). In the past, I found them on sale at Barney’s and here’s another pair that I would love to own. Except, I don’t have an office to go to and show them off to my colleagues. Instead I illustrated the platform wedge on a step stool. The 4.5″ heel height allows me to grab the usual out-of-reach objects. But more importantly, they act as a step stool when I sit down at a movie theater for date nights. No more dangling feet means no more numb feet! Definitely worth the investment.
