Confession time from a former crazy shoe wearer:
The last time wide-legged cuffed pants were in style, rather than hemming them (I did it myself, because I couldn't afford to pay someone) - I would simply make myself taller via the heels.
Plus, at 5'3", I liked being tall.
Jeffrey Campbell Lita's were my weapon of choice. Yes, ugly as sin, but so perfectly balanced you could literally run in them. And they were hidden by the pants. Ha! They had a cult following and still do. Google them for amusement.
