Catwalk Confidence - “Love, Walk, Live in Your Heels”
There is nothing more feminine than wearing a pair of stilettos to make a woman feel sexy and in control. Her legs seem longer, entire body looks leaner and her walk…. speaks for itself! However, as the fashion industry continues to push the envelope of heel height, many women are finding it more and more difficult to maintain their sexiness without the aches and pains that result from just a few hours of wear.
