My husband and I love the show Shark Tank. If you are unfamiliar with it, here's the basic concept: people present their company/product to a panel of investors ("sharks") in an attempt to get them to invest money in their business or invention. Some of the best ideas (and the ones the sharks fight over) are those that make my husband and I say, "Why didn't I think of that?" The concepts are so simple, so obvious, and fulfill a real need.
"Why didn't I think of that?" is exactly what I thought when I first learned about Ssh-oes. Ssh-oes is a line of very stylish, very quiet heels. I received a pair of ssh-oes heels to review and I have to say, I don't quite understand how they work, but I can say that the noise reducing heel lift does work. In fact, it took me a while to notice just how quiet they really are because it is difficult to notice something that's not there. It wasn't until I wore them for an extended period of time in my kitchen that I realized there was almost no noise to speak of. These shoes quickly became my favorite for student teaching - no more noises to startle elementary students or to announce my presence to high school students allowing them to hide their phones (or other contraband) before I get to them.
The noise reduction isn't the only feature that makes these shoes my favorite for long days on my feet; they are also very comfortable. I am not one for very high heels, so I specifically picked the lowest heels Ssh-oes sells. They were extremely comfortable compared to other heels of the same height that I already own. I would imagine that the taller heels would compare favorably to other shoes of the same height as well. The next time I'm looking for particularly high shoes, I'll be turning to Ssh-oes first. In fact, I wish I had learned about Ssh-oes before I bought the nude heels for my brother-in-law's wedding. I'm a bridesmaid in the wedding and would be much more confident walking down the aisle in shoes that are less noisy (the ones I bought will be loud on the church's tile floor) and much more comfortable.
The only criticism I can give of Ssh-oes is that there are only a half dozen styles offered currently (although all the varieties that are offered are cute!). Since these shoes are so comfortable and so quiet, I would love to have my closet full of them if only enough styles were offered to compliment my entire wardrobe.
If you'd like to have a pair of Ssh-oes for yourself, I'm so excited to offer you 60% (yes, that's SIXTY) percent off Ssh-oes with the coupon code CatholicNewlywed. Enjoy!
