I've had a terrible cold for the past week and just today felt decent enough to venture out. I took my dog for a really long walk and it felt good to get some fresh air and move my legs. In fact, it felt so good my legs took me shoe shopping! These are probably the highest heels (5.5 inches!) I've ever owned but the platform definitely helps. I needed a little pick me up from the boring week I've had so these did the trick.
