Lou's Girlfriend's Shoes: Part One (Hello, Red Flats)
Since coming over from Europe, Lou's girlfriend's shoes have been a bit neglected. As soon as the weather improves, they'll be taking a difficult hike in the woods courtesy of a friend of mine with a voracious desire to be very abusive to the shoes on her feet. In the meantime, I thought I'd send the red flats a greeting with my Pleaser T-strap pumps.
As promised, the information found here will give you a little insight as to what's going on. I didn't measure the heels of my Pleasers but the top pieces are very small, somewhere between 3/16" and 1/4" of an inch. There are times in the video when I am putting nearly all of my 300 pounds onto the heels of my shoes, meaning the pressure being generated is somewhere in the 10,000 PSI range without any motion whatsoever. That means the number is going to swell as I lift my foot off the floor and stomp back down on it. What abuse Lou's girlfriend's shoes are being forced to endure! Good thing they held up with only a few scratches, although the road only gets more difficult from now on... figuratively and literally.
