Shoes, Glorious Shoes!

YSL Tribute Pump

I’m like most women, I love shoes.  The higher the heel, the more I like ‘em … Unfortunately, I do much more walking as a stylist than I did as a lawyer sitting at a desk all day long and my feet can tell the difference.  Oh I succumbed to the new heel heights; I got a pair of the YSL Tribute heels to add 5.5 inches to 5’2″ self.  They’re absolutely beautiful, I mean they really are.  They take my breath away everytime I look at them, but wearing them is a whole ‘nother story!  I should own stock in Insolia because at this point I cant wear a pair of heels (low or high without them) – they force the weight from the ball of your foot to shift to your heel, so you’re not standing on your tip-toes all of the time, www.insolia.com.  However, I really need some everyday low heels that look good and feel even better.  I’ve looked high and low and am just coming up dry, dry as the Saharah.  I found some great platform Gladiator-type sandals by Kate Spade this Summer.  Were they comfortable you ask?  I bought 3 pair, what do you think?  I wish KS had decided to use the same base and make a similar shoe for the Fall.  I’m a girl with hips and not a lot of height, I need big hair and heels to balance my hips out a bit.  Wearing flats does wonders for my feet, but I dont love the overall effect.  So, I’ve been on a mission to find a comfortable, attractive wedge or platform heel to wear day-in and day-out.   For a cool downtown, jeans and fur vest look try the Kelly Clog by Kork-Ease.  If you’re a true hipster, the No. 6 clog boot might be for you, although your wallet may beg to differ at the starting price point of $340 – we are in a recession … but I love the blue patent leather ones.  I’m still thinking about those.  If money is no problemo, go for the Clergerie’s – they’re beautiful, well-made and COMFORTABLE.   I’ve found a few, but I’m still looking …  and better yet, I’m just starting to road-test ‘em, so I’ll keep you posted.
