“You can never take too much care over the choice of your shoes. Too many women think that they are unimportant, but the real proof of an elegant woman is what is on her feet.” – Christian Dior

Living in Manhattan I’ve encountered a lot of  wealthy and famous people who have completely lost touch with reality. There is no such thing as brunch emergency or a flower emergency but shoes emergencies? They are real and they are serious. No I’m not talking about the time Madonna and Leighton Meester wore the same Louis Vuitton pumps to the Met Ball gala (although that was pretty horrifying).


Introducing Solemates, click here, with great products for solutions to common shoe emergencies. Blister balm to keep your feet injury free. Shoe freshener to keep your shoes smelling sweet. A huge issue for people like me who live in humid climates.

But perhaps their most innovative product is the High Heelers. June is graduation and wedding season.  Which can mean a lot of walking on grass in formal dress. I was at a party once at Donna Karen’s house in East Hampton walking around her backyard my heels poked through the grass repeatedly. I actually fell once. High Heeler are plastic tips you put on your heel that protect both your shoe and you!

  • Prevents high heels from sinking into grass
  • Protects on cobblestones, bricks, grates, and wooden decks
