Fug or fab? Heel protectors

I was looking through my daily dose of fashionable shoe blogs this morning, when I came upon a blog posting on the Well-Heeled Society. Apparently the fabulous Felicia over there gets to sample some HeelSkinz, which is a type of heel protector. Now, this wasn’t the first time I’d read about heel protectors. A few months ago, I heard of a product called the Achilles Shield, another device that you sort of slip onto your pair of heels to protect them from dirt and staining and scratches, particularly when you’re driving:

The HeelSkinz are similar, although, when I first saw them, I thought it was a device to basically add an ankle strap to your shoe:

So basically, my question to you, my lovely fashionistas is this: Are these devices fabulous enough for you to wear, or are they too out-of-control even to be seen in your car?

    Hmm, I have to say that’s not a bad idea, especially in winter when your car mats are so easily contaminated by slush and salt. However, I can just wear different “driving shoes” and I would never wear these outside of the car. In otherwords, if they were free to me, I might use them, but I’m not going to spend money on such a unitasker!

    I support the use of these!

  • Shawna

    I might wear them behind closed doors or behind the wheel of a car.

    I would wear them for driving, but would hope that they were easy to remove so no one would see them when I step out of the car!

    The Heelskinz looks fashionable. If it protected the back of the shoe, I might just wear them because it would make a shoe look totally different. I went to the site and they have crystals around them. Might look pretty cool.
