I often hear ladies proclaim how ‘comfy’ their heels are. Really?
I’m one of those girls whose heart skips a beat at the sight of beautiful 3 inch heels. But I do have a little problem; I can’t walk in heels. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration. But I must say, I find the pain beyond excruciating. So much so that I often opt for a pair of classic brogues instead. So, after hearing about Aquazzura shoes, I must say that I’m intrigued.
The mastermind behind the brand is a young chap, Edgardo Osario. Only 26 years old, with already an impressive resume under his belt (he’s worked for both Salvatore Ferragamo and Roberto Cavalli before launching his own collection), Osario has opted to create show-stopping heels with extra padding. Talking about his designs, Osario has said; ‘everything I was seeing was a huge platform – it was almost as if the weirder and higher you could go, the better. No one was making something beautiful and understated. I want to create shoes that make a woman look and feel beautiful.’
Finally, someone’s talking a little sense. Now I’m all for forward thinking and innovative designs, however, if you’re someone who also has comfort high up on your list then I’m with you too. I’d much rather spend the night dancing away in heels, then bare foot. Looks like Osario has hit the nail on it’s head. Finally!
