High Heels Shoes VS Flats

Singapore
July 31, 2008 12:49pm CST
My right leg is crooked and shoes that I bought, no matter how expensive they are never seems to last! The right shoe will always break no matter how I tried to walk straight after just 1 month! As such, I do not know what to do. Recently, another pair of my flats had broken again, and I am at my wits end. I myself personally love to wear high heels shoes, but somehow or rather, my right pair of high heels will start to turn crooked too. So, can anyone advise on which type of shoes is more suitable for a condition like mine? Is there a particular brand that I should look out for?

haha.. Gals will always be gals.. Will rtaher choose to look good and beautiful that can dun care about their life and health.. hehe I think maybe u are applying too much pressure on your right leg when u walk and thus the heels will break easily, if not, it will be the way u walk and u din postion yourself right as u walk ^_^ I dunno why would gals wanna wear heels because it makes them so uncomfortable though it looks graceful.. hehe ^_^

Lol, like the saying goes.. In this world there are no ugly women just lazy ones. If girls don't bother about looking good, then how would the guys fall in love with them right? Haha. Just joking! No la, I am not someone who cares too much about my looks. Haha.. I have got you deceived with this post of mine! It's just that I am short, and personally high heels are not so taxing on my feet as compared to flat shoes. I think my feet are more used to the arch rather than the flat ground? I am not too sure about that. But, I must admit that I love high heels! The higher the better. Hehe, at least by wearing high heels, I am not that short anymore and I would no longer have to smell the underarms of other when I am rushing off for work early in the morning! Haha. High heels are not uncomfortable as long as you get the right heels, and the right leverage of tallness. Of course, don't be crazy to go for something like a 12 inch heels, those will really kill your feet! Lol, the highest heels that I have is around 2 or 3 inches and i think that is the highest that I am willing to go for. Any higher than that, and my poor feet will suffer. Nope, it's not the heels that break when I use high heel shoes, but rather the strap of the shoe will break or something and my shoe will become more and more crooked. Today, I wore a flat shoe to the induction training that my company is holding and after wearing that for the entire 8 hours, my entire feet was hurting. THen, my colleague and I came to realise that my left feet has no problem but my right feet is crooked in a straight shoe. So the shoe kind of aggravate the problem more. In the end, I ended up limping all the way home! Lol, no more flats for me anymore that's for sure!!

NO matter how short u are, i guess u will either be still taller than me by abit, or same height as me, of course without your HIGH heels huh.. lol =D I have seen gals and my frenz wearing heels and flats b4, and their reasons are totally different.. haha =D Some says they walk better on heels and that they feel more comfortable, while those whom wear flats, really flat, almost like walking barefooted on the ground, and they are its comfortable.. lol I was thinking, how can a flat so flat be comfortable when there's no cushioning at all, and heels being so high, how can they ever walk properly.. lol I have not seen 12inches heels b4, i've seen 5inches, and 5 inches is already so high, i wonder how the gal is gonna walk on 12inches!!! haha NO thanks, i dun think i will wanna wear it, because i tried to wear once b4, and b4 i could walk, i felt like i'm in a ballet class, stretching my calf muscle so much, and that i could fall down any moment.. lol

I love ladies wearing flats, pumps and sneakers. They look more awesome and very 'next door girl', if you know what I mean. I think shoes that are on sale in Marina Square for ladies are all really gorgeous and looking comfortable. Or you can opt for crocs.

Ladies who wears flats, pumps and sneakers look very athletic and the sporty kind of girls. Personally, I like to wear those too! However, it is impossible as my office does not allow these to be worn. Lol, they call it slippers and just the other day, I got scolded for my attire over it. Hehe Thanks for the tips! I will take a look over at MS one of these days after work. Lol, afterall my office is so near the Central as it is at Chinatown! Are you staying in Singapore? YOu look like an 'Angmo'. Hehe, where are you from?

I think I've answered your question, my grandma is mixed, that's why. By the way, your office is in Chinatown..? That's pretty near to MS, heh..I wish I could spend more time shopping these days, it's just work and work. But I think some girls look very feminine wearing pumps and flats though. I'm 100% local guy, :)

Okay you are staying at where I am staying! Lol, had just read your blog and seen the pictures of the estate that you are staying at. That's 497 isn't it? Hehe but strange, I had never seen any 'ang mo' looking people around here before! Lol. Yep, I am working at Chinatown. If want to say near to MS, it's not really that near, but want to say far, it's not that far either. I guess it all depends. Well I still prefer places like Far East or JB for my shoes! They are much cheaper than anywhere else in the Central district of Singapore! I love Malaysia! Glad to see that you are pretty much of a local guy! Welcome to Singapore! Hehe

Maybe it has something to do with how you walk... my brother has this really weird way of walking and no matter how expensive his shoes are, they always surrender after a few months. I use to have the same problem as you, only that its my left foot. So I practiced walking and so far my shoes are A-ok. :-) try it!

I do agree that when it comes to walking, I have this really weird way of walking. Lol, it is not elegant but at the same time, it is not very tomboyish (if you get what I mean!). But then, when asked to stand straight with my feet pointing outwards, then the crookedness of my left leg is very prominent. So in order to walk properly, I would have to overcompensate on my left leg, which will result in a very awkard gait. If I walk normally, then my left leg would be pointing towards the left slightly and my right leg would be pointing straight. But that way, my walking stance at least looks normal. Haha, I guess your brother can join the club for wearing out expensive shoes within a few months! (Don't tell him I say that! :o) I will try that out sometime, and hopefully I would suceed just like you did, and my shoes will last much longer than what it's doing now. Thanks for your response! And take care, have fun mylottinG!

Hehe.. they do look elegant and sexy in their high heels, don't they? Personally, I do love that look too. Girls also look more confident when they wear high heels as compared to flats. At the same time, it allows for girls who are short to look taller, and this does boost one's confidence.

It sounds like you should consider making an appointment to see a Podiatrist or someone like that. It depends on the cause of you crooked right leg of course but maybe wearing an orthopedic splint for a short while might help you to walk properly or alternatively have some shoes especially made for you. I suspect that neither of these two options will be cheap plus you will not think they are very glamorous but if you are already breaking shoes on a regular basis, it would be costing you a fair amount of money anyway. Initially I was going to suggest that you could always wear flat shoes but I see you have already stated a preference for wearing high heels. Maybe you could try wearing flat shoes most of the time, except perhaps when you are going out somewhere special. That way you get the best of both worlds, i.e. not as many broken pairs of shoes but still the glamour when it counts. Good luck and give some serious thought to seeing a specialist who might be able to help you with this problem .... and maybe save you a fortune in always having to buy new shoes.

Flats would not last me long too, and soon the soles will also split open. I have no idea why this happens and I am very sure that it is not about the quality of the shoes/slippers. I have tried the cheap ones as well as expensive ones, but all of them could only last a certain amount of time, namely up to 1 month max. before it starts to split open. Well, I will consider your suggestion. Thanks for your input and advice! Have a nice day, take care and happy mylotting
