What fashion-lovin’ girl doesn’t love shoes? And it seems the designers are paying close attention to our footwear fetish. They’ve been coming up with so many beautiful designs! But these designs come with a price: pain. Excruciating pain. Six-inch stilettos! Reed-thin, awkward heels that look ready to break anytime! The most outrageous shapes and forms that do not give your feet any space to breathe! (Remember Alexander McQueen’s Armadillo shoe?! Only Lady Gaga could pull it off!) And the funny thing is: We have to literally pay—and dearly for most—for this suffering! Ain’t that ironic?
So does fashion always have to hurt this much? (Just looking at the Armadillo shoe already hurts.) And would you always choose fashion over comfort? After watching the Sex in the City premiere I’ve noticed that Carrie always managed to look comfortable in any pair—but then again, Mr. Big’s limo is always around to bring her home!
