Don’t let your shoes wear you like Lady Gaga did!! Thank God for girls like Lady Gaga…always pushing the envelope with fashion. Unfortunately, she became fashion road kill when she tripped wearing her massive platforms at London’s Heathrow Airport. This is a perfect example of “not letting your shoes wear you!”
Platforms are a great trend and a comfy alternative to stilettos. They take some pressure off the ball of the foot but there can be accidents just like Lady Gaga’s. Tina Aldatz creator of Foot Petals has some comments on what went wrong with Lady Gaga’s wedges as well as some information on how you can avoid falling in your killer wedges!
Lady Gaga’s wedges have several issues:
1) There isn’t any “toe-off”- a rocker type sole; like a genie’s slipper. If it’s too flat on the bottom, you are increasing your chances of getting tripped up.
2) The big danger is twisting your ankle which is what’s happening in this picture. Ankle support is key when trying to pull off a style like this. You need to prevent your foot from moving around in the shoe. To fix this, you can easily add a ¾ insole such as Killer Kushionz to keep your foot properly positioned. Your body has a false sense of where the floor is and that is when you loose your footing.
