If you're a local you already know, and if you’re visiting you’ll quickly learn that San Francisco isn’t always heel friendly. Moving here from Los Angeles, I learned this lesson the hard way on my first weekend out with friends. First, I’ll admit that I completely lived up to my LA stereotype. I was too reliant on my car, my comfortable box with wheels equipped with a closet (a.k.a., my trunk). My first weekend out I had to walk over 15 blocks to a BART station, then get off and walk three blocks to the correct MUNI stop. Then, once I arrived to the right neighborhood I had to walk another ten blocks just to get to my friend’s house. After the first five blocks, I began to regret wearing my cute heeled boots and by the end of my commute I was ready to leap out of them. I was accustomed to my closet car, so of course I didn’t even think to bring a backup pair of shoes to store in my purse. When I arrived I thought, at least I made it, but that wasn’t even the end. Shortly after my friends said, “Let’s just walk to dinner, it’s not that far.” The phrase “It’s not that far” became a theme that night and many nights thereafter. Walking is a way of life in San Francisco and having shoes that won’t slow you down while still looking cute is a must.Read More
