Hmmm…..many of us have given up on high heels in the pursuit of cute, comfy shoes. But, alas, there is actually a very high heel that is comfy, the Oh! Tori. The mission of Oh! shoes is “to save women’s feet.” Yes, that is the exact wording of their mission statement on their website. http://www.Ohshoes.com. It’s hard not to like a company that has that as their mission statement. And oh, they also call their shoes: “healthy sexy shoes.” Also, hard not to like that selling point either.
Now, saving women’s feet with sexy healthy shoes is not cheap. Their shoes are expensive, but the bargain shopper can find these jewels of saving women’s feet at a savings. Try 6pm.com, ebay, or amazon.com where I have picked up these for MUCH less than other online stores. I have purchased the purple pair for $50. on ebay and bought a second back-up pair (I do this sometimes when I love a pair of shoes) for $60. on 6pm. com. Hint: on 6pm.com the prices change on various days…I have seen this purple pair anywhere from $60.-$159.
The Oh! Tori also comes in black reptile, a greenish strange color suede (not my fav), and a gorgeous cheetah print that has not come down much in price. I AM getting the cheetah ones someday when the price gets more reasonable.
I have the Oh! Tori in black suede and a really pretty purple suede. I often wear the purple suede with a solid black pants suit and inevitably someone will ask me about these very high dramatic beauties. For the clergy types, the purple is perfect for Advent and Lent.
Yes, these heels are very high….about 4 inches, but they have a very deep platform that offsets the height of the heel. The toe of the shoes is also square, so the tootsies have lots of room to rove. Also, an added caveat is that the black suede and black reptile have red soles and a red tip on the heel, sort of like getting to wear Christian Louboutin’s without the pain to the soles or to the savings account.
It is so surprising that such a high heel could actually be so comfortable. Now, could I wear these for 8 hours and then go out dancing all night? No…but at least I could go dancing OR work for about 4-6 hours in them, but probably not both.
If you need/want/must have a high heel and can’t stand the thought of painful piggies, try the Oh! Tori to save your soles.
