I find that cheaper shoes, especially heels like these, cause blisters and pain (especially under the ankle) much more than a shoe made of, I don't know, better material? I had some adorable blue "python" heels that just tore my feet up right under the ankles to the point i couldn't wear them, I gave them away. I guess it depends on the shoe? Expensive ones can cause pain too, I'm sure, but digging into my skin the way those did? Maybe it was just that one pair... Has any one else had this experience?
