new discovery: heel condoms…wtf?

No, they’re not protective rubber covers for your shoes.

A really strange name for an ingenious and attractive product. A heel condom is a fabric contraption you wear on your heels for adornment or wrap them around your shoe and your ankle to help keep your heels in place.

As I was walking around my office today in my new Aldo pumps, I remarked on how comfortable the shoes were but how annoyed I found it that my foot was constantly slipping out and that the effort that it took to keep my food firmly in my pumps rendered wearing them uncomfortable.

Then I ran into the heel condoms on facebook and a light bulb went off! I need one (or a couple) of these to help keep my pumps on my foot AND to add a little pizzazz to my shoes. For under $25, you can dress up a boring pair of shoes.

Here are some of my favorites:

What do you think of the heel condoms? Simply Fab or Simply a Fad?

  1. They are definitely not for me. The blue ones aren’t SO bad because they blend in with the shoe and actually look like they could belong to it.

    When I saw the title of your post I thought you were referring to the protectors you put over the heel of the shoe to save them from damage when driving/walking. Now those I need!

    Shoes and Jules
