How can I stop stepping out of my shoes on stairs?
I have to buy flat shoes with a high front to stop this - I have very flat feet so am not sure if that is the problem.
It happened a few weeks ago on the Tube and I ended up flat on my face at the bottom of the concrete steps, was lucky not to be more seriously hurt. Those shoes were quite high fronted but the current ones are higher - and frumpy. But I don't care.
I do have problems getting well fitting shoes (it's easy to say "buy shoes that fit" - it's not so easy to do). My flat feet make it hard plus the fact I don't fit any size - 8 is too big, 7 is too small, not many brands do half sizes and even if they do they don't always fit me. But the last pair of shoes I bought are a 6.5 from M&S. But I tried on a shoe from them in a 7 recently and it was too small. Heel grips help in some shoes but not all. My flat feet mean my toes push forward more so they can get very sore in the wrong type of shoes.
Buy better and more practical shoes. Or get someone else to fetch the drinks.
I have very high arches and just walk out of any standard women's court shoe or ballerina shoe. I shop for styles very carefully - I now get shoes made to order via Etsy - ironically cheaper than most high street shops.
I cannot for the life of me keep court shoes on. Someone told me it could be because although my feet are very wide at the front, they are narrow at the back by the heels? Anyway.a friend swears by double sided tape which she puts in her shoes so basically your feet actually stick to the shoe. And amazingly it works! I only bought the cheap tape from Poundland and it did the job on a night out earlier this week!
