Car shopping shoes

L'Autre Chose Chunky Heel Ankle Boots

If you spend most of your life in heels, it’s wise to wear them car shopping to make sure that your legs fit under the steering wheel.*  I wore boots with heels shaped like this (mine are Michael Kors from last year).  The heel makes them easy for walking through any snow/ice in the car lot, but gave me an idea of what it would be like for an everyday drive.

These boots are also have a good chunky heel.  If you’re not worried about snow, I like these from Charles David.

If you go in the summer, a wedge sandal would work well – good for walking and for providing an accurate idea of leg length in a car.  It’s hard to find wedge sandals (I like a light color to elongate the leg, a skinnier heel, and preferably a slip on style), but these Badgley Mischka ones come close, as do these from Jack Rogers.

*I instantly ruled out the Camry using this method.
