Being glamorous or as Kimora would say "Fabulous" does not always need to equal discomfort when it comes to shoes. I know we all have been there...we bought those absolutely stunning shoes because we had to have them, even though we knew that they did not fit right or feel comfortable. Or what about those heels that you have to wear all day. They may be comfortable for the first few hours but in reality some of our days are longer then 8 hours, so what do you then? Here are some helpful tips we have gather from from our own experience and the experts.
Here are the top three products:
Putting an extra spring in your step has never been easier.
