Check it out: Shoes with adjustable heels

Anyone remember the shoes with adjustable heels that were so talked up a few years ago?

Well, they’re in the news again. Camileon Heels feature a heel that can go from high to low in seconds — and all without ever having to remove your shoe.  Simply pull down on the lower half of the heel to disengage and fold it up under the arch.

The heel can go from 3 1/4 inches to 1 1/2 inches. Suddenly that long walk from one end of the shopping mall to the other doesn’t seem so daunting.

While the shoes have been around a while, what’s new is the price — all styles are less than $100. That’s what I learned on ”The Nate Berkus” show. That’s a big price drop from the original $250 to $300 price tags.

I checked the shoe website soon after I saw the presentation and the prices were still high. I fired off an e-mail to the company and got this quick response.

“The webiste is being upgraded and new pricing listed. Sales will be online only. Avail in the next 45 to 60 days until my operations in China are established. We manufactured in Italy and the prices are just too expensive. Thank you!”

So, if you’re interested in these shoes, hold off a while until the prices come down.
