City Pulse

By Liz McKenzie

While we may dream of strutting in sky-high Manolos ala Carrie Bradshaw, the reality of wearing heels in the city isn’t so pretty – blisters, calluses and sore, achy feet. But with the help of these four easy foot fix-its, even those of us without personal chauffeurs and the latest Louboutins can conquer any shoe trauma.
