I first wrote about the “shoe problem” over a year and a half ago. I’ve been aware of the shoe problem for as long as I’ve been an event planner. What is the shoe problem, you might be wondering? It’s the extreme difficulty that event planners have finding comfortable shoes that work for being on your feet at an event for hours, if not days, at a time. I’ve written an entire post explaining this problem.
But has someone solved this problem? Tanya Heath has apparently tried. The Paris based designer has released a pair of shoes with interchangeable heels. That’s right – you can go from flat to a wide heel to a stiletto. But as Connect Your Meetings reports, this comes at a price. The shoes retail for $380 sans heels, with each set of heels running $26. Another benefit of this system? The heels are available in a wide variety of colors, patterns and designs. So you can think of your heels as a way to add “bling” to your outfit – if that’s your thing.
Of course $400+ is a lot to pay for a pair of shoes, and I’m not entirely sure it would solve the shoe problem better than a comfy pair of flats. And at that price point, I’m not likely to experiment any time soon.
What do you think of this solution?
