Hello all,

I recently bought a pair of really nice strappy gold sandals and kitten heels they feel comfy at first but after a couple of hours standing around my feet kill me as your foot get pushed to the front so the straps cut into your skin same with the kitten heels i get blister on my toes.

I always had this problem with strappy, heeled sandals, and also with peep-toe pumps. I only buy strappy sandals with a lower than 2" heel, or heeled sandals with a wider strap around the ball of the foot.

As for kitten heels, you should be walking on the ball of your foot. The problem I usually have with those is turned and sprained ankles, if they aren't balanced correctly on the shoe.
