Looking for a pair of shoes that you can put on with anything and spice up your entire wardrobe? Look no further than these amazing handpainted Sriracha pumps from Hourglass Footwear. Inspired by the beloved red bottles of hot sauce and painted by a team of Seattle artists, you can also get your Sriracha footwear in the form of flats, stilettos, or mid-height heels. At $200 a pop for the platform heels (flats are $130), they’re not cheap, but for true fans of the red rooster, they’re well worth it. [$200, Hourglass]

How High Is Too High–For Your Heels?

We all have our limits when it comes to the height of our heels. I’m prone to wearing more extreme shoes, I suppose, because I’ve been short since forever. I stopped growing when I was 13–my mom blames it on me becoming vegetarian at that age–and in order to not seem too midget-y, I took to wearing heels early on. I’m only five feet tall without shoes on, so my feet have adapted to wearing unreasonably high heels over time–even though they often make my friends cringe. My highest pair of heels maxes out at around 5 inches and they’re perfectly comfortable, because I’ve learned that it’s often not the heel height that makes shoes suck, but the slope of the arch that creates the most pain. Too extreme an arch and your foot will constantly be sliding forward into the toe of your shoe. That’s why I love a shoe with a small platform on it–it helps soften the slope and make the shoe infinitely more wearable. But everybody’s different. I have friends who can’t bear to walk in anything but flats. Others that wouldn’t be caught dead without their stilettos on. So tell us: What’s your take on high heels? How high is too high and what’s just right for your feet? Keep reading »
