Product of the Week: The Charlize by 34 Minutes

Co-Founder and designer Dr. Michele Summers created a line of shoes to help women stay on their feet with ease. 34 Minutes, the name of her label and the average time it takes for a woman’s foot in a high heel to start hurting incorporates her expertise as a podiatrist into what she calls a sexy, stylish and comfortable brand.

The Charlize, a suede oxford platform with a 4″ heel, shown here in royal blue and black with a plum tounge not only keeps feet in style, but are also made with a built-in orthotic that supports the arch for maximum comfort. Seems like picking up a pair or two is the type of doctor’s order, that any woman should take. 

Check out this made in Los Angeles label at 34 Minutes.
