I just moved to Chicago from California where trading off between flip-flops and heels made little difference since I had a car and drove everywhere. Now that I'm in Chicago, I don't want to give up my heels, but walking everywhere is tough! AND it's hard on your shoes! My favorite pair of black Chanel boots already look used up and tired out. Do you girls stick to flats, or do you still wear your heels? I see lots of girls in Chicago in high heels, so that gives me hope. Also, how do you take care of your shoes to prevent them from all that wear?
