Solemates High Heeler saves your shoes... and saves face, too
This weekend was my stepsister's wedding and as is traditional in England in July, the grass we stood on to take photos was still a little damp from an earlier downpour, leading to many a sunken, muddy high heel disaster (for once, I was sensible and wore wedges: yay me).
Disaster could have been averted, however, if the vertiginously-heeled among us had been aware of a new invention from Solemates: The High Heeler. This nifty little design slips on over the heel of your stiletto or kitten heel to allow a better grip on grass or uneven pavements. The website shows a woman comfortably playing golf in her heels, but I'm not sure I'd go that far... for weddings in damp old England though, this would be ideal.
Only in clear (but coming soon in black), it costs $19.95.
