These Shoes Aren't Made For Walking.

By lifesnapper
Hi all and many thanks indeed for your many votes, lovely awards and excellent mod's on my previous image, all very much appreciated. THANK YOU!
So, another silly Sunday already and for this one; It just goes to show that 6" heels and cobbled hill's do not mix. Her partner had just given her a piggy back down a fairly steep slope but, unfortunately, I had just started to change my lens when I spotted them so missed a great opportunity. Oh well, here's the shot that I did manage after the main event and before making adjustments. Holding on to his shoulders seemed to be the only form of stability until they reached slightly smoother footing, not much of that to be had in Greece. Smile

Have a good day everyone, once the frost clears, and be careful how you walk on it.

All the best to all,

This is great!
Although there are many things in life I don't understand ...

1 - Why women choose to walk around in shoes that were clearly only designed for keeping heavy doors open
2 - Why people, especially on crowded London tube trains, leave £600 phones hanging half out their back pockets
3 - Einstein's theory of relativity

Have a great day

A well captured example of monumental silliness.

Einstein’s theory of relativity is far easier to understand than why anyone would try walking along cobbled slopes in those shoes!

I see this a lot - women in shoes they cannot stand up in, let alone walk.
The best I have seen was at a wedding - a lass who had to take her shoes off and walk barefoot through sheep droppings...
GrinGrinGrinGrin great capture- a question of balance indeed. Almost a miracle she can do it.

Wasn't there a song in the mid-1960's that included the incantation 'Who wears short shorts?/We wear short shorts . . '
These days substitute tight for short in both cases.
What a silly Sunday!

Her feet are far too wide for the shoes - or rather, the shoes are far too narrow for her feet.

A wonderful capture for Sunday, John!!SmileSmile

When a guy asks how girls walk in heels sometimes you just gotta show them how

We do love heels but sadly as we get older comfort becomes a priority.
Nice derriere though!

I suppose it is Kate ... although would probably be better if he took that mobile phone out of his back pocket.

And a great response to Kate's comment.Smile

Great image and wonderful comments, John. Never did understand about this sort of shoe.
Still, many other things I don’t understand, some mentioned above🙂🙂
