These bows on my toes have been working some serious overtime since I got them. Come to think of it, I am pretty sure they have not left my feet for much more than to sleep. They are so much more versatile than I thought they would be and so incredibly comfortable. Are you sick of hearing me talk about comfort yet? Probably. I promise you though I am not lying when I tell you I will not buy heels that I can not run around town with an 8 year old in like they were tennis shoes. If they give me blisters or have me hunched over in pain forget about it, never going to happen!
