Tonight my husband and I went to dinner with a friend. My hubby did not want to valet his new E63, so we parked the car one block up the slope. After he parked, I told him there is no way I can make it down to the slope with my Louboutin 4.5" heel. After I stepped out I asked hubby to walk in front of me so I can hold on to his shoulders. After a few steps, I felt the balance. I can actually walk down the slope myself, slowly though. So I just hold hubby's hand tight and walked down myself. I have been wearing 4" high heels most of the time, and it is impossible to maintain balance on slope. It must be something to do with the design. I think I just love Louboutin more and more!!
