All of which meant that, when I began applying the new cream to my feet I was, it was fair to say, a skeptic.

PARIS — Early one morning three weeks into fashion month, I sat in my Paris hotel room with a deepening sense of dread. It wasn’t the prospect of 10 runway shows back-to-back each day, nor filing stories from my phone in (what turned out to be) the nearly constant rain.

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 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.

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.

Rather, it was doing all that in five-inch stiletto heels. For a week.

Called — surprise — Stiletto Cream, the product was introduced last month and was the brainchild of the shoe czar Tamara Mellon and Lord Jones , the upscale Los Angeles-based brand behind a hit CBD-infused body lotion .

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.

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.

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.

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.
