You are probably familiar with that “click-y” noise your heels make every time you take a step in heels. Some women love the sound and feel more confident with every heel strike. But that same sound can cause other women to cringe. Personally, the click-clack of heels doesn’t bother me, but for those looking for quiet heels, I’ve found the perfect solution!
I was recently introduced to Ssh-oes, the only comfortable heels specifically engineered to keep your steps quiet when you walk. I’m all about comfortable, stylish shoes, and so I had to give Ssh-oes a try! I received three pairs of Ssh-oes for review – two pairs of black pumps and one peep-toe shootie. Read on to see whether these really are quiet heels, and how they stood up to my tests.
Kate peep-toe shootie
I’m going to start out with my favorite: the Kate peep-toe shoe boots. Sumptuous black suede and trendy styling caused me to be instantly smitten. But when I test-drove them over the course of two full days, I really fell in love. The heels were incredibly quiet compared to my friend’s heels when we went out on a Thursday girl’s night. Plus, I received a few compliments on how they looked with my black leggings and draped tunic.
By far the best thing about these shooties is they are comfortable, and I’m not saying that lightly! Thanks to ample cushioning and the elastic ankle strap, I was able to stand and dance in these for hours without any soreness or blisters. When I find a heel that lets me feel fabulous while I look fabulous, I hold on to it, and shout it from the rooftops. So, here’s me SHOUTING!
Kate is from the Fall 2012 Ssh-oes collection.
Mary classic pump
I also asked to try a classic pump, and the Mary is just that – a chic basic for any woman’s wardrobe. I tested these the day after I finished wearing the Kate peep toe booties, and I have to say they were a little less comfy because they have less padding (and no platform). However, they were comfortable enough for a full day at work and, I felt like a ninja at break time, silently tiptoeing across the tile floor.
Vicky black pump
I received one more classic black pump, the Vicky, for review. I love the cute little bow on the vamps of these kitten heels. I wore them to work the day after I tested the Mary. I found Vicky slightly more comfortable, and I enjoyed being able to sneak up on my coworker…ha! Seriously though, if you’re looking for a moderate heel that you can wear anywhere, I recommend the Vicky.
I found Ssh-oes to be extremely comfortable, and they do stay true to their promise of silent steps. I have only one negative to report, and that is that the insoles started coming unglued after a few wears. This was easily remedied with some super glue.
While I wish there were a few more avant-garde shoe styles, I realize that Ssh-oes has made a huge leap forward in the name of comfortable fashion, and so I am fine with being patient and enjoying what is currently available. You can find a variety of classic pumps, sandals, wedges, and boots on the website at affordable prices. www.ssh-oes.com
