I got two pairs of black, high heeled, pointy toed shoes for Christmas. One pair almost reaches my knee, the other ends not too far above the ankle.
But, like anything that is pretty, or delicious, these shoes are not good for my body. After walking around for a while they start hurting and when I get home my feet are red, swollen and full of blisters.
I don't like wearing something that hurts. I don't see the point in it. I wanted nice, waterproof boots and, well, at least they're pretty. They're great for walking to my lectures and back but I tend to walk a lot more when I'm out. And then they hurt. A lot.
