Need heel condom for your high heel shoe? Perhaps yes.

Don’t get alarmed if you haven’t heard the expression before. Heel condom is just an accessory added to the high heeled shoe for either securing it tightly to the foot or adding ornamentation to the middle and back portions of the shoe. The word ‘condom’ distantly relates to protecting the heel and fitting over the high heel like a condom, nothing else.

Though the origin of the expression is not known, thehighheelcondoms website claims to be the originator of this concept. However, use of decorative and fastening accessories for shoes - especially women's high heel shoes - has been common for quite a long time.

 Since narrow-heeled women's shoes such as stilettos do not often have enough material to fasten it to the foot, heel condom is a desirable accessory for such shoes. It is also helpful for women's high heel shoes with a few narrow straps.

According to the website mentined above, heel condom used to be of condom style in the beginning and has evolved to panty style of late. While the former is a slip on over the heel, the latter extends to the middle area of the shoe.
Whatever the connotation of ‘condom’ and whatever the origin of the expression, do use these accessories to make your high heel shoes more sexy and glamorous. And safer too!
My personal likings
I prefer the following types of shoe condoms:
  • thick, with strong elastic, for stilettos
  • thin and solid-colored for heel condom around the heel so that it doesn’t protrude too much towards the back
  • flowery, satin / fur / velvet for upper and matching with bow etc on the upper
  • non-elastic but knotting type for securing the shoe tightly with thin uppers
  • contrasting, for rare experiment

The first time I was told of this expression, I gaped. Then I saw the sense. Now they are an essential part of my shoes.
I doubt if the site's claim is genuine. Have they a proof?

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
