My Secret to Wearing Heels All Day
Hi, I'm Amy and I lie about my shoe size. Why? My job requires me to be on my feet all day, and usually in high heels. I've been a fashion model for 10 years. I typically pose for 12 hours a day and it kills my feet. So I've learned to tell the client I'm a half size bigger (I'm a 7.5 but I say I'm an 8). This was the only way I knew to help reduce some pain so I could work all day. It’s no secret that walking in high heels is uncomfortable. When my shoes don’t fit properly they can cause blisters which just leads to even more pain. Now? I don't have to stretch the truth, I have a secret weapon to stretch my shoes. The morning of my shoot with Formé, I was informed that they only had size 7.5 shoes for me to model in. Although I am a true size 7.5, I was nervous - this shoot would last all day and I didn’t want to be in pain, especially because the shots they wanted had me on my feet all day. When I first tried Formé Shoe Shapers, I put them in my booties while I was in hair and makeup. By the time I was done, I was able to comfortably walk around in my actual shoe size for the entire shoot! No breaks needed! Formé Shoe Shapers created a more comfortable shoe fit in about an hour!This product has completely changed the way I work. Now I bring my Formé Shoe Shapers to every shoot so that I work all day without having to worry about being in pain. When I arrive on set, I slide them into the shoes the client wants me to wear while we prepare for the shoot. I've found they make any shoes noticeably more comfortable so I can work all day. Here are a few things I learned about Formé Shoe Shapers from the inventor herself. Formé Shoe Shapers prevent "gappy" heels which are the leading cause of blisters. The handle of the product keeps the shape of the heel so it doesn't lose it's shape as you wear it. When the shape is right my shoes don't slide off, I don't get blisters and I can confidently run around in my shoes for work!I don’t know what it is about women’s shoes, but it feels like they make enough room in the toe box for maybe one or two toes, but definitely not five! And I have five! The wings on the Formé Shoe Shaper allow me to expand the toe area exactly as much as I want it to. I get to customize the fit depending on how tight the shoe is and give my toes more wiggle room so I can walk all day.When I have more room in the toe area of all my shoes, even my favorite booties, I can walk confidently on the street in total and complete comfort. This product is the reason I can wear my true shoe size... and now, I can be true to myself and clients!
