I remember when hollywood diva Marilyn Monroe once quoted “I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot," and boy...she ain't kidding. Over time, a pair of heels became an indispensable part of almost every woman’s wardrobe. They come in a variety of styles, types and heights. Stiletto, pump and kitten to name a few. Each and every individual also has a different attack when it comes to buying high heeled shoes. Do you buy because of the influencing trend? Or because they make you look and feel good? If you haven't come to think of an answer to that question, now is the time to find one. Avoid wasting big bucks buying shoes that you'd just allow to rot inside your closet.
There were numerous times that I ignore the substantial factors when buying heels myself, and in the end the wrong pair wreak havoc on my legs. That dilemma was finally dispirited when I found out about the Ferretti brand. Then came the K-sis (as I prefer to call 'em..like K-pop huh?) Kira & Kari. I merely thought they were sisters in real life. Anyways, I both saw how they enjoyed their Ferretti shoes so that's how it landed on my to-buy list. Real life testimonials baby.
Learning that Ferretti was locally-made (Marikina) it somehow made me more keen on getting one as I have been always lured to try Marikina-made shoes. I tend to always say, "Pare-pareho lang yan...basta high heels masakit sa paa".
I understand somehow that some people tend to think that Ferretti is an Italian-brand. Does the name even sound Italian to you? Because of Spaghetti? lol. Oh well...possible but I'll define it in another aspect.The items are quintessentially made and what made me like it is the shoemakers' eye for details. Still, I was a peewee scared of again failing to buy another good pair of shoes. Good ...meaning? I seek comfort and something that will last me longer therefore save me money on the long run. Not to mention it has to be affordable. On the other hand, I don't mind if I need to shell out a bit more as long as these criteria are met.
But, of course, you don't have to sacrifice style for comfort. You don't have to be doomed to wearing wedges or flats for the rest of your life, just find a pair of high heels that have a thicker heel and there you go. Not as comfortable as wedges but a lot more comfortable than stilettos.
If you wanna know how to acquire heel height, you can follow these steps:
1. Set the shoe on a flat, even surface.
2. Measure the back of the heel from the point where it connects to the shoe, called the seam, to the bottom of the heel resting on the flat surface.
