STEP UP YOUR SHOE GAME
It can be difficult to persuade some men to put on heels, and it can also be hard to find shoes that fit.
Here are some heel/wedge/sandal/shoe finding options:
Look in thrift stores such as Salvation Army or Goodwill for cheap heels.
Borrow a pair of heels without backs; it's okay if your foot hangs off the back a little.
Ebay, Payless, Shoe Show, or Shoe Department stores usually have larger sizes in women's shoes.
Spray paint an old pair of shoes red or pink to add some flare.
If you do not want to wear heels, you can always wear flats, crocs, or flip-flops.
If wearing the opposite gender's shoes are not an option, wear whatever makes you comfortable; your shoes do not determine if you can or cannot participate in Walk A Mile.
STSM'S SHOE VALET
If you can't find the perfect pair of shoes or don't want to spend a lot of money, STSM offers a shoe rental service at Walk A Mile during the event.
For a donation of $5, you can rent a pair of shoes to walk in, while STSM holds your shoes. Simply return STSM's shoes after Walk A Mile is over to collect your shoes.
STSM has more than 140 pairs of shoes to choose from, ranging from a men's shoe size 7 to 14.
*If you have large size women's shoes that you would like to donate to STSM for our Walk A Mile shoe rental, please contact us at 803-790-8208.
