Making a Statement with Calla Shoes

Today I'm going to talk to you about bunions.  This follows on from talking about varifocals.  Yes its that age!  You may recollect that I tried out a gadget mentioned in this post. Hmm well it didn't go so well. I didn't see a great improvement in foot shape and it was a hassle to put on.  In fact you'd need to be a contortionist and let's face it that is less likely at my age than a number 9 bus!.  Yes this gadget is incongruous in its requirement for contortion and flexibility combined with the intended wearer having bunions.  Step in Calla Shoes.

Calla Shoes cater specifically to the bunion market.  I was looking for some stylish,  not 'mummsy',  shoes for work and what do you know,  I found these heels designed by Calla.  What particularly appealed was the platform,  which meant the heel elevation wouldn't be too steep for my back but still look chic in the office.  Look at the pretty feminine bow at the back.

I have to say I've enjoyed strutting my stuff at a conference and in the office in these.  

They are now part of my shoe wardrobe under my desk on the office and I slip them on when I want to make a statement. A meeting,  a presentation, external visitors,  going to a reception,  or just to be taken seriously.

Who would have thought bunions could provide such statement chic!

Have you looked at Callas' website. It's quite prescriptive in helping you select the correct size  Calla is the brainchild of owner Jennifer Bailey, a bunion sufferer of the last 20 years and serial hunter of stylish and chic high heel shoes to wear for special occasions.
The gap in the market was clear to Jennifer. Many shoes look beautiful on the shelves but are either too narrow around the toe area to fit the bunions in comfortably, or designed so that the bunions are exposed, causing embarrassment, frustration and putting elegance out of reach.

I am particularly impressed with the measure my feet guide on their website

These shoes of mine are goats  leather but I admit that I spent some time wearing them in slowly to loosen the leather.

  1. Tres chique! I love bows on shoes! I ll bet they are very comfortable!

    1. They need the normal breaking in but are very good quality

  2. They do look comfy and yes, I did spot them on IG and thought how beautifully they finished off your stylish corporate outfit. I enjoyed reading how the shoes gave you that feeling that you could take on the corporate world with ease and confidence. Certain shoes have that effect on me too, though their effect on me is less business, more sass!
