So, saying no to them is hard. Extra oomph is best experienced when you also able to walk in the heels you have chosen to wear. For all the crazy heel fans, here is a list of heels you can buy easily.
Stiletto means a “small metal dagger”, and it is rightly so. With a slim, long heel which is sexy, scary, dark and fatal, the stilettos are the toughest and highest of all the heels. It comes at the top of the heel paradigm. As we all know, practice makes a being perfect, hence, be sure to practice walking with the heels on before going out to a party or any other occasion.
