Marilyn Monroe said it best. Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.
That's literally how I felt when I tried on the Evi by Madison pump. If you guys remember, earlier in the month, I did a introductory post on Evi just to introduce it to you and make you aware of it's launch before it sold out. It's basically a redesign and relaunch of the Lulah pump from 3 years ago.

Oh high heels, how I've missed you! I wore these for about 8 hours over two days (once on the weekend and then during this photoshoot) and they are insanely comfortable. I always get so many questions asking how can I possible wear a 6 inch heel for so long without cringing and my number one tip to you is that it takes a lot of practice. Honestly, I used to wear sneakers every day of the week until I got used to wearing high heels and the only way that I was able to master them was to constantly wear them around the house and practice. And, as any master knows, there are always little things that you can do to make anything easier. For example, if I'm in the market for high high heels, I always look for a pair that has a platform on it so that it can balance out the height.
Another tip that I can tell you is to make sure that you have a steady supply of Foot Petals on hand. Foot Petals is a brand that creates the most comfortable shoe cushions for high heels and flat shoes. I literally have boxes of their tip toes that I slide into the ball of my shoes before putting them on. These make my feet feel like I'm wearing nothing at all, especially when I walk so it gives me the ability to rock them all day long. There are so many different inserts that you can try depending on what your preference is: tip toes, softspots, technogel, you just have to figure out what kind of comfort you're looking for.
Besides looking for comfort, when I wear high heels, I always pair the bottom of my shoes with these Sole Stopperz to add some pre-made traction to them. You won't catch me out to dinner slippin' and slidin' in 6 inch heels on your shiny waxed floor. No sir!
All you have to do is take the petal-shaped stick-on, pull off the adhesive backing and press it firmly onto the bottom of your shoes. Make sure that you step down on it firmly a few times to secure it in place.
Now you're all set to rock some sky high stilettos and feel like you're floating on air.
