Heel Hell from Via Spiga


I was shocked while shoe shopping last Friday. I'll have a full complaint written about my experience shortly along with the letter I wrote to Nordstrom, however my first complaint is about the first shoe I tried on.

This is one of Via Spiga's new styles, the "Suzzo". It's a great shoe for going out to a club, going dancing, or just looking uber-hot on a date, not to mention it has such a high heel and a platform that it lengthens your legs and adds about 5 inches to your height.

With all those positives, what could there possibly be to complain about? Well, the shoes are unwearable. Do you see the back of the shoe, where the straps criss cross then fasten around the heel?

Unless you have a heel that curves inward about a million inches, those criss cross straps will continue to slip right under your heel, leaving you constantly raising your foot behind you to readust the strap. I tried tightening the strap so hard that I cut off circulation to my foot and still after about 3 circles in the shoes department, you're stepping on the straps rather than wearing them.

Heel Hell. So, an open letter to Via Spiga with some design suggestions: You should know better. Many designers do. Let me point out to you some designers that GET IT.

Manolo Blahnik gets it with their Patent Leather sandal, that criss crosses in the front.

And the new Andrew Gn T-Strap I would currently trade my first born for, upon closer inspection adds a little holder on the back, so there is no slippage.

I hope you'll figure this out in the future Via Spiga. Until then...

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was
wondering which blog platform are you using for this
website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your blog. It looks like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.

First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in
which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures
aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
