SoleMates: Ingenious or Insane?
Just learned about these little plastic caps you put on your heels and I’m not sure what I think of them. SoleMates are either completely idiotic or they’re brilliant and I’m just jealous I didn’t think of them first.
On the pro side, they do supposedly prevent you from sinking into the grass or stumbling because your heel got stuck in the sidewalk crack. I could see them being a good gift for bridal parties or crazy women who wear stilettos all the time. And they come in clear, black, silver, or gold and a couple of heel sizes.
On the other hand, they’re $10 a pair (or $5 per shoe, if you want to break it down) and unlike Swims galoshes, SoleMates do nothing for the actual look of the shoe. You’re supposed to believe that it just blends in and no one will notice. But lets get real–if you wanted a flared heel, you’d just buy some Fluevog Minis!
At any rate, I felt an obligation to let you know about these. Decide for yourselves if they’re worth a test. (And be sure to report back on your findings!)
