Fashion weeks – New York, Milan, etc. – can be gruelling experiences. Especially on feet which get jammed into uncomfortable five-inch heels. But now a new CBD product, called Stiletto Cream, promises to make walking around in spikes a breeze. The New York Times sent its Style correspondent Elizabeth Paton to test it out.
“For as long as I’ve been working on the fashion week front lines, I’ve been a loafer and sneaker devotee,” writes Paton. “Occasionally, if the dress code reads ‘black tie,’ I would try the odd chunky strappy heel. The idea that a cream would allow me to totter over cobblestones in five-inch spikes seemed close to unimaginable.”
The cream promises to harness the power of CBD to make heels bearable. But does it work? It seemed to for Paton.
She writes that she was telling that to anyone who would listen. But “Mostly, they laughed and gave me looks that said: ‘Are you actually high?.’ I didn’t care. Because I was: by at least three inches.”
