A Texan is fighting to keep her heels because she has ‘the perfect shoe’ article TEXAS HEEL LACESTS TEXANS WEDDING ROOMS TO SAVE THEM, WOULDN’T THEY BE LOST TO THE COATHAUSES?
A Texian’s shoes, too, are too small for her husband’s shoes and ‘heels are so comfortable’, according to a new book, Texas Shoes: A History of Style.
‘If he’s not going to wear his dress shoes, I’ll be wearing my heels,’ she said.
‘I don’t want to wear my shoes that way, so I try to wear something a little bit smaller, but that’s not to say that’s perfect.’
The way I’m comfortable is to wear heels when I’m with my husband.
I have a husband who wears them.
I do not want to put any pressure on him to wear them.
‘But when we’re in a hotel room and the doors are open, it’s hard to see the point of wearing heels when you’re just about to get to the elevator.’
In her book, Texan, published by Macmillan, Ms Telfair said she started wearing heels because they made her husband more of a ‘heel man’.
‘I can’t believe how much my husband appreciates my feet,’ she wrote.
‘We love them, and I can’t think of any reason that I wouldn’t love them more.
‘My husband, on the other hand, would not be able to wear a pair of heels without getting a little annoyed with me, but he does love my feet.’
It doesn’t matter what my shoes are, I’m wearing them.
I know what they’re like.’
But her husband says he prefers her to have a ‘more comfortable’ shoe, and is now wearing them on his first day of a new job.
‘The first thing he says is ‘what’s your shoe?’ and I’m like ‘I’m wearing a pair’, he said.
Mr Telfairs first pair of shoes came in a ‘pink leather’ colour, with a ‘lion heel’ on the inside.
He said it is ‘just too big’.
‘He has been wearing it for three weeks now,’ he said, referring to the first few months of work he had been wearing them without them.
He has now changed to a pair that fit him ‘just perfectly’.
‘It’s a very comfortable shoe,’ he told the ABC.
‘He’s never worn anything else.
I think I’ll wear them for a month, see how they’re doing and then maybe change them.
But he’s never gone through a period where he’s had a really bad day, he has never had a bad day with the shoes.
‘So when you look at my husband, I would say it’s very comfortable.’
But while the pair are comfortable, Ms Trimes said it would take a ‘huge amount of effort’ for her to find a pair.
‘When I have to wear two pairs of shoes, it gets a little overwhelming, especially when you have to do all of the things that I do, like walking to the bathroom and putting them on,’ she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
‘It takes a lot of energy and it takes a big amount of willpower to put on two pairs, so it’s going to take a lot more effort than just putting on a pair.’
The book was written by Lauren Telfaras, a professor of American studies at the University of Texas at Austin, and features interviews with Ms Tefaras’ family and friends.
‘There’s a lot about the women who have worn the shoes that make them special, and that is something that I want to explore,’ Ms Talfaras said.
The book comes after another book, The New Women in Shoes, published in May, by American writer and historian, Lisa Einhorn.
Ms Trafas said the book is an attempt to highlight ‘the uniqueness and quality of the women and men who have been the pioneers in fashion’ who have led the way in fashion.
‘Our focus is on the women’s journey, the journey of women’s footwear, and the journey that the women made, which was a significant transition to women’s shoes,’ she added.
