Photo below, taken in the parking lot near my office. Look at that poor heel, just laying there dead.
This is the danger of wearing skinny heels, I tell you! And one reason why I’m all for choosing chunky heels. Not only do chunky heels offer more surface-to-surface contact (and therefore more stability), but they also have a lower chance of busting off and leaving you hobbling away as if you had a severe case of leg length discrepancy.
