It was a summer night; I was eighteen living in Peoria Heights, when a friend and I decided to go for a ride. Since I was young and naïve, I made a big mistake and hopped in the care without shoes on. We drove for hours because gas was inexpensive at the time and ended up in Chicago.
Sadly, in the middle of the highway on our way home, the car over heated and stopped running. I was forced to get out of the car without shoes on and attempt to fix the problem. Originally, I thought it was not going to be a big deal, but boy was I wrong!
The summer heat made the pavement unbearable on my unprotected feet. I was in agony! From this experience, I definitely learned my lesson. Now, I never leave my house without shoes since it is unclean and horrible for your heels to walk without any support. Working at Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates, I definitely know better now!
On that day, I would have given anything for three things we offer in the office: Aetrex Sandalista Sandals, Gilden Tree Lotion, and a pedicure to help all the damage I caused myself not wearing shoes. A nice soothing pedicure would have helped to restore by dry, blistered feet while our lotion would really help to lock in that moisture.
