My new CAMiLEON Heels
People who’ve known me for years have probably never ever seen me wear heels. Sure, I’ll wear pumps – low, chunky heels that can get me down subway stairs and through pedestrian traffic without twisting my ankle. But actual high heel shoes? Never. Well, almost never: In the last five years, the only time I remember wearing heels was when I attended a party in the hotel where I was staying. All I had to navigate while teetering on my cute shoes was an elevator and a hallway. Which I was able to do, but just barely.
So, as much as I would occasionally like to sport high heels at a fancy event or party, I just couldn’t. Not without risking embarrassment, broken shoes, and possibly broken bones.
Until, that is, CAMiLEON sent me a pair of their new convertible heels to review. These shoes are genius: I can wear them as low heels while commuting or driving, but then, in a matter of seconds, I can convert them to high heels! It really is that easy. Watch:
When worn as kitten heels, they’re low enough that even I can walk around the city in them. And unless someone were lying cheek-to-sidewalk, they’d never notice that there was anything “different” about my shoes. But then when I arrive at the ball (um, blogging event), I can make myself a couple inches taller and join the ranks of those people who seem to live in heels all the time. (I think they belong to that same sub-classification of human who can Rollerblade without pads, and not end up with hideous scars).
The shoes themselves are gorgeous and come in many colors and styles. I think I might buy this pair:
I love my CAMiLEON Heels so much I’ve worn them even when I ‘m not planning on converting them – they’re just cute, comfy shoes. Plus, there’s a metal bar running through the heel, so they won’t break like normal high heels. And they’re available in wide sizes, if you need that.
I can’t wait to get more! You can see all of their current styles here.
