As someone on the shorter side, I’ve been seeking out added height from footwear for as long as I can remember – so I feel that I have authority when it comes to heels. While some say beauty is pain, this doesn't need to be the case when heading out for a night of dancing. Do not fear the towering heels: a well constructed shoe will always guarantee you're on your feet throughout the evening and beyond.
