Cobblestones can be hell on your feet

Cobblestones can be hell on your feet. Especially if you're wearing high heels. (Remember, all the fashion guides on what to wear in Paris specify "NO white sneakers" - so if you are style-conscious, chances are, you will find yourself in heels at some point in time during your stay in the City of Light.) And in Paris, there are LOTS of cobblestones. So while flipping through a magazine in the doctor's office this afternoon, I found something that may not help your poor little tootsies when walking on cobblestones but will certainly protect your precious high heels and which I just had to share with you:
Behold ... SoleMates!

"High Heel Protector
At last, the sole-ution to wearing high heels in grass, cobblestones, bricks, wooden decks, and over subway grates! A high heel protector that is discreet and easy to use, the SoleMates High Heeler™ attaches easily to most stiletto and high heels."  Ships Globally.

Get some for your Manhalo Blahniks!



Brilliant ... and you are so right about cobblestones and heels in Paris. I've never seen it talked about though ... good on you.

OMG, Cynthia, this reminds me of what the high-heeled Ladies used to wear on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City in the 50s and early 60s on their stilettos to keep them from slipping between the boards of the Boardwalk.

Everything old is new again. Haven't seen these in years. "Bonjour la nostalgie." Sigh!!

From the BBC series on Paris, Blood and Chocolate (Part 2 of 3). Enjoy!
