Fun fact that many wood flooring professionals are all-too-familiar with: A 125 pound woman in high heels exerts 2,000 pounds of force on a floor through an oh-so-chic pointy high heel. So what's a wood-floor-minded girl-or her wood floor guy-to do? Can fashion and wood floors co-exist? Solemates, based in Greenwich, Conn., has attempted to answer this question with the High Heeler, a flexible plastic cap that distributes that force over a larger area (a little less than an inch square), preventing dents in a wood floor as well as keeping stiletto and kitten heels from sinking into grass or slipping between deck boards. For $9.95 per pair at www.thesolemates.com, they're a small investment to keep floors free from dents after holiday parties.
