Oh Hello there, and to our loyal readers, Welcome back.
I love reading and I have come across two quotes that I find relate a lot to my choices of footwear and why I chose to customize mine. And they are as said below:
"Shoes transform your body language and attitude. They lift you physically and emotionally.” —Christian Louboutin
“You can never take too much care over the choice of your shoes. Too many women think that they are unimportant, but the real proof of an elegant woman is what is on her feet.” – Christian Dior
Maybe I should stop here, these 2 individuals couldn’t have put it anymore direct or straightforward on what the shoes that fit you well and look good can be such a small and big change at the same time.
I find I have said it one too many times, but due to the nature of my job, I always picked comfort over style. Another reason is due to my feet size is 40-41, I had a huge limit to styles so I have had years of pain and scars from shoes I picked style over comfort. And to add on, I’m not by any standards petite and the weight that my poor feet squeezed into an ill-fitting shoe had to endure wasn’t the best way to treat myself and the added pain to deal with after work getting home wasn’t pleasant. I’m sure you can relate to the nasty blisters and how painful it can be when it tears or burst and you have raw skin rubbing against hard leather. In summary, at the end of the day it’s not the prettiest picturesque feet you would like to witness. These scars do not limit to just my feet but to my wallet as well. I could spend up to 200 dollars for on shoes that didn’t fit me well and didn’t last.
When I finally took more time and care on my choices of shoes and found customized shoes, I felt everything changed. I didn’t need to suffer to feel more confident and I stopped struggling day after day. I am not a naturally confident person; I walk usually with my head held down as much as I can. But today, I don’t or I like to think much less. When I started taking better care of my choice of shoes, taking care of how I presented myself came naturally. I dressed more formally to match my shoes and presented myself likewise. I felt more proficient and unbeatable, not to mention how much less sore my feet felt at the end of the day, and this made me feel happier of my accomplishments of the day.
So care a little more for your feet, a small change that will (I assure you) give you an unexpected change for the better. Don’t let comfort and style be two separate choices, at Le Cuore we strive to deliver to you both and maybe a little dash of something more.
