I had an unfortunate loss tonight.
A few weeks ago, my Steve Madden stilettos showed signs of fatigue. A slight split at the left heel. I assumed it was benign.
This evening, at around 6:00 PM, I realized that the left stiletto had a small hole in the front of the shoe. Plans began to be made to undergo resuscitation attempts and procedures to allow the shoe to recuperate. However at around 7:35 PM, it became clear that the stiletto's case was terminal.
