These feet ain't made for walking......(New York City)

I have realised the biggest challenge I will face during my stay New York City.

Keeping my tender feet blister free!

Now for a woman who owns a lot of shoes, I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with them. They lure me in with their good looks, their shiny newness and their tempting colours. I bring them home and I cherish them. I keep them in colour and style co-ordinated box. I give them a really good home. But the sad thing is....they just don't love me back! *sniff*

Once placed upon my feet these beautiful foot adornments turn into creatures of torture. My delicate feet protest and the result is blisters. It doesn't matter the style or make (I've enough bought Clarkes!)

Of all the shoes I own, I have 2 or three pairs that I can safely wear without any repercussions, so naturally I am predicting a problem when I hit the streets of New York City!

I want to do a LOT of walking whilst there, to soak in the atmosphere, to see everything the city has to offer and to meet people and there is no way I'm going to let my shoes slow me down! It's a city that needs to be seen on foot.

I'm going prepared. Armed with a pharmacy sized supply of plasters and tape, my feet will be protected and blister free whilst I hop, skip and jump around the streets of Manhattan ;)

  1. As someone who lived and worked in Manhattan I think you will be surprised by the number of women who wear training shoes around town and change into "nice shoes" for the office/dinner/theatre. A nice pair of New Balance running shoes with gel inserts seems the most sensible.

  2. Hi Martin!

    Thank you for the footwear tips! I am bring to trainer-like pairs of shoes with me. They have thick cushioned soles, but trial runs have proved they are blister causing too. (I really think I'd be better in bare feet haha!) I'm looking forward to seeing what shoes Manhattanites wear :)
