After a night out at a club I was walking back to my car. I was wearing a pair of very sexy black platform sandals with 6″ heels. The heel on my left sandal got stuck in a crack in the sidewalk. I could feel myself losing balance so I used leg strength to stay upright….and ripped the straps completely out of the sole! After a few shaky seconds, I carefully stepped off the now ruined shoe, and removed the one on my right. I walked barefoot the rest of the way to my car. Fortunately it was just down the street. I loved those sandals so I bought another pair the next day.
