Dubai's Desperate Housewife

Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

A warning about stilettos

leave a comment »


I know that, in the UK’s litigious climate, companies like to warn the unsuspecting public about potential pitfalls of their products (we’ve all seen the McDonalds Apple Pie label that says “Warning: Contents may be hot” and the peanut packet that “may contain peanuts”) but this one I found today on my new pair of British-branded shoes took me by surprise.


I’d have thought that “Warning, these shoes have stiletto heels and those wearing them will suffer unbearable pain in the balls of their feet due to the large amount of weight on such a small surface area. Tears should be expected” would be far more appropriate.
