Kim Kardashian Living Proof That Heels, Travel Don’t Mix Well

New York, Travel News, Travel Tips — By John Curran on November 12, 2010 at 11:00 am

Kim Kardashian knows that a good set of heels can set off a dress like no other pair of shoes. The reality starlet also found out that for most people, heels just aren’t made for walking around.

The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star managed to make it around New York City all day recently in leopard print stilettos, to highlight a pinstripe pencil-skirt-and-suit combo, according to the Daily Mail. Unfortunately, a misplaced suitcase proved her undoing, as Kardashian tripped, stumbled and broke her toe.

While she recuperates from the injury, she may want to take a page from the U.S. Tour Operators’ Association. While Kim has to wear flats by choice to protect her injured toe, the USTOA recommends women try and keep flats or other more stable shoes in their travel packlist rather than stilletos.

The reason? You don’t know where you end up, whether it’s cobblestone in Rome or a suitcase obstacle course in New York City. Playing it a little safe with your shoes may seem slightly bland, but no one wants to be the traveler limping on their dream vacation. Look above the ankles to show off your fashion sense, instead.

    Fun post! 🙂 Mamma mia … walking around New York City is already challenging enough. But in stilletos? I love a good pair of heels, but I would have broken more than my toe doing that!
