Lady Gaga

It’s that time of year again, time for women to slip into the latest trends in women’s boots. This season it seems as if bondage and torture are coming in vogue. Perhaps it’s a reflection on the economy as we’re all tortured by the lack of money and feel bound to our budgets. The styles may say this but the prices sure don’t.

Look for lace up boots, lots of restraining buckles around boot uppers , and metal studded boots. But whatever you do, don’t go quite as overboard as Lady Gaga did above (hey, Lady Gaga, your boot’s untied).

Embellishments that smack of bondage are all the rage this season and these restrictive shoes can actually be quite appealing and terribly painful at the same time. The good news is there may actually be a little relief in sight for those aching toes. Try these little wonders from FootSmart.com, the Foot Petals Tip Toes Cushions. These little pads fit inside your shoe under the ball of your foot and give you that extra little padding you need. They’ll be invisible in most boots but might not work with cut outs as well, but they do come in a variety of colors so you may be able to camouflage them.  Since I’m just dusting off my boots of death for the season I may buy a pair and see if I can wear my killer boots for more than five minutes without pain.
