Sensible shoes on women on romance covers are a turn off for me. Do not ask me why. I don’t know. Lord knows, if I wear shoes at all, they’re sensible. Not to say I don’t own a pair of stilettos, however, the extent of waking I do in them is limited to the two steps it takes for me to get to the bedroom door. There, after striking a dramatic pose, I primly wait for my DH to do the manly thing and save me from myself by sweeping me off my feet and carrying me to bed.
So, that being the case, you would think I could relate to sensible shoes on a cover. But alas, no.
