Having a Cinderella moment
In the Grimm fairy tale of Cinderella, the Ugly Sisters cut off body parts to try and fit the Glass Slipper to win their prince. Despite losing their toes, they didn't win their prince and you know how the story ends. Although if they were living in this day and age, they'd simply book a cosmetic appointment to do away with those pesky toes or reshape their calves and be able to wear that glass slipper following a week of recovery. With their extreme methods to make shoes fit, I definitely think they wouldn't not have a problem with today's shoes!
So are you having the same problem as me? I love platform shoes (whether its hidden or part of the sole), at 5 foot three it gives me a bit more of a lift in the height department but sometimes I struggle to get the shoes on! Its like my toes are struggling for space or I have to undertake some sort of toe-yoga to get my foot in (the problem mainly seems to occur with my right foot).
I'm an average size six, my feet aren't that chunky but it honestly feels like sometimes you need to resort to drastic cosmetic surgery to ensure you can wear the shoes currently available on the high street. Well, I heard that fashion is pain, so if I want to have those extra inches, I'll have grit my teeth and keep on walking!
