Name: Stiletto High Heels
Country: India

stiletto wearer will be aware of the wear and tear that walking has on the sole and plastic heel of the shoe. Care and frequent repair can ensure the shoes don’t wear out too quickly, but there are only so many times that shoes can be repaired before it doesn’t make economic sense to repair them again.
