So removable heels exist now, and your blistered tootsies are about to get the ultimate reprieve on a night out

Praise be.

It's 11pm, you've just polished off an espresso martini, you're surrounded by a glorious girl gang and there's only one thing left to do - make a beeline straight for the dance floor.
There's just a little problem - your feet feel like they might fall off.
Ah yes, that old niggle - heels are great and all, but boy can they cause a right palava in the comfort department.

It's a woe as old as time, and one that many, many people can relate to.
But what if we told you there was a solution? What if we told you there was one simple trick that could quite literally eliminate all of your sorry sore-footed woes within seconds?
Yep, removable heels exist - and they're the most practical thing we've heard of since our grandmas knitted us pure wool cardigans.

While it's not necessarily a new invention, the market for removable heels hasn't always been the most diverse in Australia.
Sure they might save you on a night out, but there's an element of materialism we'll shamelessly uphold here - we want our shoes to look good after all.
But the market now looks to be shifting somewhat, with global footwear label Mime et Moi having just launched in Australia.
The brand offers a number of styles that can be interchanged with different sized and shaped heels - which you can literally carry in your handbag.
And honestly, you'd never know they feature detachable soles even if you awkwardly stared long and hard at them - so sign us up!

Said heels also won't cost you an arm and a leg - after buying a pair of their shoes (which retail from AUD $200), the removable heels are priced at around AUD $50.
Given you can transform the entire vibe and style of the shoe, it's not a bad exchange.
Heel styles include block, stiletto and kitten, ranging from 10cm high to 3cm.
You can also change up prints and fabrics - from blue suede to tortoiseshell.
Simply whip off ye olde heels for a brand new lease on your (night)life. (Mime et Moi)

Another Aussie brand offering the goods is Kuoco, which gives buyers the option of styling their own ideal shoe - from the heel to the straps.
While these shoes a little more casual, it's good to have the option if that's the vibe you're after.

With the above info on hand - and on foot - a night out can technically go on and on... and on.
And as for next Spring Racing season? Boy are we ready for a full-blown day session. Bring. It. On.
