Haute Historian. A Hurt So Good

Warning! Ladies, there is an article on nymag.com and circling the
net spouting the negative effects shoes have on our delicate little
footsies. You Walk Wrong
Adam Sternbergh, claims that wearing shoes disrupts our gait and ruins
the millions of years of perfection our feet have developed. Let me say, reading the article was a complete waste of time on my part;
for one, because Sternbergh doesn’t even suggest we go barefoot (a
concept that never truly entered my mind until now, but the only real
cure for this malady) and two, the shoes he suggests to wear are, in
all aspects, cringe-worthy! Sternbergh did make the point, however,
that it doesn’t matter what type of shoes we wear; from stilettos to
flip-flops and pumps to tennis shoes, all shoes are ruining our feet.
So, from one shoe lover to the next I suggest you wear only the most gorgeous of shoes, no matter how excruciating…you’re feet may hate you, but isn’t a little pain worth it?

Since we’re agreed that a beautiful pair of shoes is well worth a little pain, I would like to share with you a secret…I stalk Christian Louboutin shoes.
While I currently can’t even afford one shoe, let alone a pair and I’m
not sure I can even pronounce his name correctly, I search the net
looking for his latest styles and visit Neiman Marcus on a regular
basis just to hold a pair in my hand and view the exquisite detail up
close. And no, I am not ashamed to admit it.

If you’re unsure who I am talking about, Louboutin’s creations
are instantly recognizable by their red-lacquered soles, their, more
often than not, four inch heels, their beautiful hand-crafted details,
and their $1,000 price tag
. It’s very likely the shoes you wear are Louboutin knock-offs, since fashion designers such as Chloe, Alexander McQueen and Jean-Paul Gaultier have used his shoes in their fashion shows, bringing the artistic footwear even further into the lime light.
