Camilla Parker Bowles’ Secret Funky Shoe Collection Revealed
In other royal family news, we take a break from Megxit-bashing to bring you much less controversial details about Camilla’s bunions! Hey, in all fairness, everyone has feet, and if we can’t talk turkey about them then what is this world coming to?
Actually, I misspoke: What would a royal story be without an aside about Megahn Markel? Bear with me, it’s germane and I’ll get right to the point: Meghan reportedly hates her feet.
Unlike Camilla, who wears her bunion-busting footwear proudly, sources say that Meghan forbids coarse photographers from sneaking pics of her tootsies. Why the shame Meghan, practice a little of that self-love you’re always preaching about and make the world a better place!
Camilla has found the secret to standing on her feet all day?
Back to Camilla, who was once in Meghan’s shoes (pun intended) as far as popularity ratings, she apparently has bunions but has found the most fantastic shoes.
Lots of people, men included, have bunions and they are thought to afflict almost 40% of women over the age of 30. For these individuals comfortable shoes are hard to come. Therefore, Camilla’s find will no doubt come as welcome news for millions.
Sole Bliss shoes are designed specifically for those with bunions
According to The Mail on Sunday, Camilla swears by Sole Bliss shoes (at £149 a pop) to the degree that she now has around a dozen in her wardrobe.
What’s so special about the footwear? They are specially designed for those with bunions and feature cushioned soles, wide widths and larger toe boxes. All of these features go a long way toward decreasing the pain that bunion sufferers find with many other non-specialized shoes.
Camilla is on her feet a lot, participating in over 200 engagements annually which means racking up a ton of miles on her feet. She has worn Sole Bliss shoes to the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March and to a VE Day tribute at the Balmoral War Memorial in May.
It is said that Camilla has in the past said she was, “screaming in agony at the end of the day,” and desperate to kick her shoes off, “at every opportunity.”
If her new shoes eliminate these issues, they might be worth a try? The shoes are from British designer Lisa Kay, 56, whose other fans include actresses Dame Helen Mirren and Amanda Redman.
