As I’m trekking along the web I see an add for a “Shoe Condom” and you could here my brain screech to a halt! I just had to look at what this was all about.
They are covers for your heels. The style I purchased is reversible and decided on the stripes to help play up my outfits without investing more money on shoes.
This is what I found out:
The material is sturdy and not easily stained… which is great since they’re on your shoes.
You can decide how to wrap it around as you can tie it to the back front or side. I chose a simple knot instead of a bow with the red ribbon adorning my ankles.
I have beautiful pink kitten heels I purchased on line for $12. They’re gorgeous BUT there’s no elastic on the back strap to keep them on my feet. So, they rarely came out and sat pretty in my closet. When I ordered my shoe condom it was with these shoes in mind.
The fit was GREAT… not perfect.. the kitten heel is rather small for the opening of the condom and the material slipped up to live under my foot. I got away with it BUT I would consider adding a couple of stitches to make the heel entry smaller. I didn’t have needle and thread at work or would have done so.
Verdict: I LIKE THEM! They kept my heels on (PLUS)… they were comfortable to wear (Super PLUS)… and people commented on how “cool” they looked. I’m planning on getting the spiked design to vamp up my fat little feet.
Would you wear them?
