For those who don’t have the time or inclination to wait for the thicker cream to dry, there’s Mazz Hanna’s Smoky Quartz Infusion CBD Foot Spray. The product was actually the first that Hanna, a celebrity manicurist, created when it came time to formulate her namesake line. “From her experience getting A-list celebrities like Julia Roberts and Selma Blair red carpet ready, she saw how CBD lotions caused her clients’ feet to slip out of their shoes,” the brand tells TZR in a press release. “On top of that, she was always worried about different lotions ruining their super expensive heels.”

Want to join Kristin Bell, Sophie Turner, and Maude Apatow — who all reached for Stiletto Cream at the 2019 Emmy Awards — in slathering yourself in CBD from heel to toe? "We recommend applying the Stiletto Cream 20 to 30 minutes before you slip into your high heels to allow it to fully absorb,” Capobianco suggests. “Massage a nickel-sized amount onto each foot and go about your hair and makeup routine as you let it sink it.”

Years ago, when entertainment outlets first got wind of Hollywood’s favorite cannabis hack, there was quite a bit of, er, buzz — and not always the good kind. Capobianco says the recent launch of Stiletto Cream is part of the company’s effort to “destigmatize and normalize cannabis.” Mellon, with her history in high-end footwear (you may know her as the mind behind Jimmy Choo), was a natural fit. “Tamara’s fierce spirit, her deep understanding of what women want, and her commitment to breaking boundaries aligns perfectly with our movement,” the founder shares.

In addition to 250 mg of CBD, the product is infused with smoky quartz crystals. They “ground you and transmute any negative energy, so you can enjoy positive vibes all day and night long,” according to the brand — making for a non-greasy, sinks-right-in spray that’s equal parts practical and magical.

First off: Yes, cannabidiol is in foot care now, and it actually has been for a while. Long before Stiletto Cream was a thing, wardrobe stylists would apply topical CBD to their clients’ feet just before shoving them into sky-high heels, to help assuage the pain. (I mean, can you imagine having to break in new shoes while posing for photogs at a movie premiere?) It’s said to have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, as The Zoe Report previously reported.

Maybe it’s just me, but “CBD foot cream” does not sound appealing, no matter how many times I’m told it’s a red carpet staple loved by stylists and celebs alike. But “Stiletto Cream,” a brand-new collaboration between CBD brand Lord Jones and iconic shoe designer Tamara Mellon? Or “Smoky Quartz Infusion Spray,” an elixir from CBD-and-crystals entrepreneur Mazz Hanna? Those sound like products I can proudly sink my heels into.

For as long as I’ve been working on the fashion week front lines, I’ve been a loafer and sneaker devotee. Occasionally, if the dress code reads “black tie,” I would try the odd chunky strappy heel. The idea that a cream would allow me to totter over cobblestones in five-inch spikes (the kind Ms. Mellon herself is famous for wearing) seemed close to unimaginable.

I told myself to have an open mind. Ms. Capobianco said that each morning I should apply a nickel-size dollop of cream (which would contain the equivalent of about 4 milligrams of CBD) 20 minutes before putting on shoes. So on Day 1 I duly unscrewed the tube, rubbed some on and immediately discovered I needed socks to prevent wiping out on the bathroom floor (the base is cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil and fruit acids). Then off I went in gold metallic sandals with a 4.5-inch wafer thin stiletto heel, lent by Ms. Mellon, taking my reporting to new, well, highs.

CBD stands for cannabidiol , an ingredient in marijuana and one of more than a hundred compounds within the cannabis plant. It has been one of the breakout success stories of the flourishing legal international cannabis trade , the market value of which is expected by Euromonitor to reach $166 billion by 2025.

Day 2 arrived, then days 3 and 4 — and, with each, my own 5-inch platform knee-high boot or my vampish skyscraper pump. Every morning I would begin with trepidation, and each evening I would exhale with surprise.

I fully expected that by midday, I’d have given up and swapped the stilettos for sneakers, but in fact there was nary a niggle; my feet just felt quite … warm and fuzzy? By 3 p.m. there was still no soreness, and by 7 p.m., when I felt like the edges of my day had been given a nice cannabidiol-influenced buffer thanks to the peculiar lack of aching in my soles, I decided that a placebo effect had to be at work.

The reason? For this article, I had agreed to test a new product that had been doing the front row rounds this season: one that promises you can wear sky-high heels without the inevitable throbbing ache in the balls of one’s feet.

Over time, my perception of shoe-related foot pain gradually shifted; while I was aware of the sensation and cause, I wasn’t thinking much about either by the end of the day.
