I love Sophie

Sophie by Sam Edelman

This is officially one of my favourite styles this season!  It’s sleek, sexy and being a wedge it’s more comfortable than some of the super high heels in stores this spring.

This pair is the Sophie by Sam Edelman and it’s available on prettylongfeet.com is sizes 10.5-12 (US).  Grab a pair before they are all sold out.

Your Feet Need A Little More Attention

Everyone has foot pain from time to time, depending on the shoes you wear, your daily activities, if you’re standing on your feet all day at work or quite a range of other possibilities. Either way, your feet need care too and I’m not talking about pedicures.

Today, I’d like to share with you a simple exercise that your feet will thank you for!

PrettyLongFeet.com is Officially Launched

For the last year Pretty Long Feet has been blogging about where to find shoes in larger sizes.  It’s always exciting to share with you the places, websites and interesting shops to find shoes for our long feet.

Today we’re excited to announce that Pretty Long Feet will have shoes available in larger sizes.  That’s right.  As of today, prettylongfeet.com  went live.  We’re ready to start bringing you some hip stylish footwear for ladies like us.

Now of course, we are a new start-up company and our stock is currently limited.  With your help in growing this community we can plan to grow our product assortment and expand to meet your needs.

One of the things our company is passionate about is bettering the lives of women and girls.  When girls around the world are given opportunities it prepares them to be successful women and positive contributors to our society.  Often girls in some parts of the world are not given the same level of equal opportunity as boys.  That’s why we support an organization like Because I am a Girl.  Their global mission states that to change the world you start with a girl.  We share those sentiments.  Girls and women have a significant impact on the world and it’s important that they are recognized with the help of organizations like Because I am a Girl.

We welcome all your feedback and suggestions because at the end of the day we are here to serve you.  We at Pretty Long Feet want to help you feel great when you step out in style.

Loving My New Blondo Boots

I recently purchased a pair of Blondo boots from Long Tall Sally and I’m so happy with them. I’m wearing them almost daily! The leather front and the elastic backside make for a very comfortable fit. These boots look great with my jeans and I can also wear underneath my slacks. Being in Canada, a really cool fact for me is that the shoes are made here! I get lots of compliments on these boots and I am delighted to share them with you. -Isabel

How Many Pairs?

The most famous woman in history for her shoe collection is still Imelda Marcos.  She is a politician and former Philippine First Lady.  She became famous around the world for her extravagant collection of shoes owning over 1200 pairs during the 1980’s.  According to a study published by ShopSmart magazine in April 2011, women own an average of 17 pairs of shoes but usually wear only three pairs on a regular basis.  But, over 50 percent of women own at least 10 pairs of shoes.  Did you also know that 60 percent of women are willing to tolerate pain for a great pair of shoes?

How many do you own?  At one time I was hovering at the 200 pair mark.  But, over the last year I have sold, given away and even trashed quite a few pairs.  I have not counted recently but, I’m pretty sure I’m probably still at the 100 mark.  Perhaps.  Many are pairs worn only a few times.

What about you?  How many do you own?
