High Heels and Housework

High Heels and Housework


As the title implies, I’ve been walking around this morning doing housework in high heels. Don’t judge. June Cleaver did it and nobody judged her. Well, maybe they did, but they didn’t have Facebook back then so it was mostly just whispers behind her back. People that know me are probably laughing more at the vision of me doing housework than the fact that I’m wearing high heels while doing it. And I reiterate… don’t judge.

So I’m sure you’re questioning why someone who is totally sane and generally prone to wearing boots and sandals would voluntarily walk around the house doing laundry, dusting, vacuuming and dishes in shorts, a sweatshirt and high heels. That’s a really good question. I have a very simple answer. (Besides the fact that the house needed to be cleaned.) I considered wearing them earlier this week while visiting Domino’s Headquarters. Then I realized I didn’t know how much walking or standing I would be doing nor how these new shoes would feel on my feet. I wanted to make sure they were comfortable before I opted to wear them for a conference or media event and thought a practical place to test them would be at home. So I slipped them onto my bare feet and proceeded to get some cleaning done.

Comfortable Pumps

Are they comfortable? Seeing as I STILL have them on for no apparent reason as I type this is probably a testament to how my feet felt after a bid of non-traditional testing. Normally with heels I’m kicking them off at the first chance. Under the table, under my desk, in the closet, anywhere possible. I just want them off my feet. I fully expected the same thing with this pair. But I’m not even sure why I questioned it because these Janine pointy-toe pumps are the same brand as one of my other favorite pair of sandals. They’re Comfort Plus by Predictions available at Payless. They’re also pretty comfortable for my wallet and that takes a load off my feet!

Shoe Hardware

In addition to their greatest feature of comfort, Comfort Plus Janine pumps are professional with classic, streamlined style. For something with a little more character, Payless offers a variety of shoes featuring the latest trend in footwear, hardware. I love the wine-colored Christian Siriano Dena Smoking Loafers which have a simple design gussied up with a thick chain across the front. From flats to heels, embellishments on the front include chains, buckles and metal ornaments.

There's no such thing as too many boots... - SahmReviews.com #SoleStyle #PaylessInsider


Regular readers know I have a bit of a weakness for boots. It’s the one piece of footwear that I can always justify needing. Translation: I haven’t met a pair I didn’t love! Today is no different. Appease your need for something less flashy with one of the many boot options at Payless. Tall boots, lace-up boots, slouch boots and even sweater boots are all among the options available with prices starting at under $20! Me? I would like one of each.

If you couldn’t find something interesting at Payless then you must not have be looking very hard!

Do you go for classy, flashy or comfortable?

  1. I love my heels and wear them every day to work, but once I get home, I kick them off! Boots and I have a love hate relationship, I love them, but they hate my feet #ouch

  2. Terry says:

    If I could find a comfortable pair of dress shoes… I would do housework in them also. I have sissy feet and lots of shoes hurt them. I guess I need to check these out!!

  3. These shoes are really stylish and modern. Sometimes you sacrifice fashion when you buy comfortable shoes. That is not the case with this line.

  4. Michele says:

    Guess I better head off to Payless–of course I won’t be buying heels since I no longer need to wear them anywhere!!! Sandals are mt weakness and I would wear them all winter long if I could–but the snow and my bare feet don’t get along–so boots are what I need to buy and soon!

  5. Sarah L says:

    I’m now old enough (67) to never have to wear heels again.

  6. Jaimee says:

    Yes! I used to have to work in heels and swear by comfort plus! When you’re walking as much as I did, you run through any type of heel pretty quickly, so the fact that these were inexpensive and relatively comfortable was a godsend!

  7. Rosey says:

    I’m glad to hear that they’re comfortable. They’re nice looking too and would go with so many different outfits.

  8. I love wearing heels, but I would never dream of doing the housework in them!

  9. kath g says:

    HIgh heels may make my calves look good, but I’ve always seen them as torture stilts. I’m all about comfort and only do the stilts when I absolutely have to…I’m tall enough. 🙂

  10. Lori Felix says:

    I like to shop for a variety of shoes; comfy for every day and flashy for date nights. I love shopping at Payless too. They have a large variety to choose from and great prices.

  11. diane says:

    I used to work in heels and they didn’t bother me too much. Now that I wear mostly sneakers, heels bother my feet when I put them on for church or a dressy get together!

  12. Allie D. says:

    I am not much of a high heel person, but I absolutely LOVE those boots! I really want to get those pair of boots!

  13. Melissa says:

    You rocked those pumps! I totally can’t do it, boots are definitely more my style.

  14. I love the way I look in heels, but I hate the way my feet feel. I’ll have to see if those comfort shoes can make a difference for me.

  15. harriet says:

    They are cute shoes. I often wonder how June did it in heels- and a dress- too!

  16. Those shoes look like they are really comfortable. I love those boots.

  17. I love those boots. I am a sucker for a great looking pair of boots.

  18. Debra says:

    I love that you tested to see if they were comfortable! So something I would do!

  19. I tend to let the Roomba do the vacuuming…but it might be fun to clean in those beautiful nude pumps!

  20. Im not comfortable with heels before, but now I really love to wear it. Love the boots too.

  21. Liz Mays says:

    I need at least one pair of new boots per year too. It’s critical! 🙂

  22. Angie Fiack says:

    Just like Sarah L., I’m old enough to never wear heels again.

  23. Laura Bradley says:

    I cannot walk in heels, there’s no way I would be able to do housework in them!

  24. Michelle Elizondo says:

    Im in pajamas all day.

  25. I like the boots best. No high heels and housework.

  26. brody says:

    haha nice. interesting post.

  27. Michelle Lynn Tackett says:

    I have comfort plus high heels and I do housework in them all the time. I lpve them and they don’t hurt my feet. I wear them most of the day and they don’t hurt. Get a pair if you want heels that don’t hurt.

  28. LexiAnn says:

    I love doing housework in my heels, and my husband appreciates it too. I do everything in high heels though and I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t. (Lol it’s kind of what I’m known for.) Thank you so much for this post, us SAHMs in heels need to stick together!
