Say goodbye to painful nights out with these revolutionary stilettos...

We all know that a stunning outfit is not complete without that perfect pair of shoes but painful feet are often the sacrifice that comes with looking good. Well, not any more.

Thanks to American shoe designers, Cole Haan, it’ll soon be possible to look your best in perfect comfort. Their revolutionary Tivona Air Slings are stylish stiletto heels with built-in air cushions in the soles and heels to distribute your weight more evenly and avoid pressure build-up.

In a choice of patent black or dark chocolate suede, the Tivona Air Slings are expected to be available in the UK soon, costing around £150. See www.colehaan.com for more info.

For those of us with a tighter budget, try Scholl Party Feet, small gel pads which can be inserted into shoes and work in the same way as the air cushions. Available in Boots, Superdrug and most good pharmacists, Scholl Party Feet cost £4.99.
