Breaking In New Shoes

You know I love you guys, right? If you’re too lazy to read the entire post about breaking in new shoes, jump to the links here, here and here and find your size! You’re welcome.

** This post is in no way sponsored, I just really wanted to talk about these shoes. 😉 **

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my many years of proms, graduations and weddings, it’s that you need good shoes. For many gals and guys, shoes can be a religion. That’s why when they betray you by giving you blisters, it can be an emotional experience. I was in a wedding last weekend and I thought my new bridesmaid shoes might give me grief. Like any shoe connoisseur, I decided to break them in before the big day, and man, did it pay off!

Madden Girl rarely disappoints in the shoe department (if i manage to get the right size), and these babies were a hit. I’m serious! Even the makeup artist bashfully walked over to me asking to take a photo of them (talk about a high compliment!).

What’s the big deal?

Now, I know what you’re thinking: Would wearing the shoes once really give me numerous feet problems? What’s the big deal? If you’re asking this, you’ve obviously never seen me get down on the dance floor. I learned all of my moves from Ross and Monica’s “routine” and it’s anything but pretty. I have a blast when I’m on the dance floor, especially when anything Bruno Mars comes on. Do I like his music? Not really. But there’s something about his beats that make my arms flail around like they’re only half attached to my body.

I would have been heartbroken if my shoes were so uncomfortable all night that it caused me to miss out on the dancing. Taking a day to stretch them out and let my feet form to them was definitely the way to go. I highly recommend breaking in new shoes before a big event.

Mom, if you’re reading this, thanks for making me get them. 😉
