Beauty Is Pain, Even Suri Cruise Knows That

Just days after we met Alexander McQueen’s ten inch sea monster shoes and in the wake of the only debate more important than health care – should Suri Cruise be allowed to wear high heels? – this morning’s New York Times reported on the perplexing prevalence of women in soaring shoes that literally, kill their feet.

The consensus amongst their slew of experts seems to be that wearing sky-high shoes is all about power (i.e. being tall and slim equals success and status, yada, yada, yada). As much I love to psychoanalyze clothing choices, I’m thinking this one’s a little simpler than the Times would have it. High heels just look awesome – and moreover, they help us to avoid ending up with our head in some guy’s sweaty armpit whilst trying to move through a crowded bar.

We’ve certainly seen some wacky shoe trends as of late – like trendy transparent pumps (for an eerie levitation effect) and the bizarre not-shoes of the future we spotted last week. We’ll stick with regular high heels. For aching soles, try a bootie from Cole Haan’s Nike Air series or comfy boot brand Frye’s take on the platform.

Why not let us help you navigate through all the crazy shoes out there? We’ve got guides for the best in comfortable high heels, platforms, and fall shoe trends.
