It seems that every time I write a post about heels, I get numerous comments from women basically dismissing the post and telling me that they just can't wear heels. This makes me a little sad because while you can wear whatever you want if it makes you feel good, I don't think you should have to stay away from a shoe just because you think you can't.

There is no reason for your heels to be uncomfortable. Yes, we've all stood outside the nightclubs in sub-zero temperatures in heels and tank tops waiting to get in. That all ended the second we stopped being 20 or 21, so why do we still buy shoes that aren't comfortable?

Salt, a highly corrosive mineral leaves its mark not only on our footwear, but also damages the natural world, metals, and building materials. In Ontario, where I currently live, winter road salt is used so heavily that the streets are white with it and there is fine white salt powder on everything.

When I'm lecturing to students I like to ask them how much a $100 pair of shoes costs. The most common answer is $100 plus tax. Would you believe me if told you it could be as much as $1,376.46? As a 20-year-old, if you convinced yourself not to buy the shoes, and invested it instead -- with an assumed rate of return of 6 per cent -- you'd have $1,376.46 by the time you were 65 years old.
With Valentine's Day coming up, I thought I'd find a little somethin' somethin' to wear to mark the occasion. You know -- something cute and sexy that only my Valentine would get to see.

For the past decade, I've been on a mission for one thing: super cute shoes that I can wear all the time that don't make me want to gnaw my feet off Saw-style. Easy-peasy, right? Wrong. I could never guess what would make my feet revolt. What was comfy to everyone else was a sick joke to me. Fall is quickly approaching and with the demise of summer so too shall my sandals go off into the dark basement closet. Memories of painful riding boots and ankle booties dance in my head while I prepare for months of agony.
Wedge sneakers were due for some poetry since their invasion and take-over of the feet of the young, frivolous, and trendy in mid-2011, but it wasn't until I saw their latest incarnation from the original sneaker maven, Madame Isabel Marant, that I felt compelled to write a ditty myself...
