So how does such happiness come from those things you slip on your feet? Comfort? Cost? Cosmetics? Against traditional wisdom, most shoes in the modern market tend to decline in comfort as the price tag rises. Even the most hi-tech sneakers will usually cap at around $300, whereas designer shoes, with paper-thin cushioning and minimal structure, can cost upwards to $5000.
Dipped in gold, covered in crystals, or sprinkled with diamond dust, the world becomes your oyster on the quest for your Cinderella shoes. However, glitzy footwear is not for everyone. Most of us “Everyday Joes” are sufficient with our dress shoes for work and sneakers for everyday comfort. The high prices of designer footwear are justified by the luxury aspect applied to the footwear through quality materials.
The root of every great endeavour begins at the feet. A man can carry the world on his shoulders, but the shoes carry the man.
