Shoe Find: The Running (Wo)man

August 13, 2007 by Jeanine Edwards
shefinds | Style

While I didn’t particularly enjoy the book, I love what the Russians have done with the concept of running in heels. It’s been said that Russian women basically live in heels, so it was only a matter of time before they decided to raise the stakes. Enter the annual "High Heels Race" in Moscow. Yes, it’s exactly what you think it is. Swarms of heel-loving Muscovites compete in an 80-meter dash for a grand prize of $4,000 in (yup, you guessed it) stilettos. 

 

In her victory speech, this year’s winner, Maria Kanarova, said she’d been training for the race everyday by running to the train so she wouldn’t be late for work. Given my daily commute, I might give Ms. Kanarova a run for her money. No word on whether the contest will be adapted stateside, but until then, us American girls just have to keep “training.”

In honor of the race, it seems only right that we have a little “running shoe” awards ceremony of our own, so here goes: the most comfortable stilettos to run in, or just to wear for a long day at work.

3rd Place: The bronze medal goes to this sassy peep-toe pump by Bandolino ($69). The heel is a bit high for sprinting, but it’s surprisingly comfy.

2nd Place: In second place we have the Cole Haan 'Dalya Air' Mary Jane ($295). The Nike Air technology makes a world of difference, plus who can resist a metallic this season.

1st Place And the grand prize goes to (drumroll, please) Naturalizer for this equally comfortable and classy patent leather stiletto ($79).

Honorable Mention: Cole Haan 'Cassidy Air' Boot ($495): Limited flexibility (and breathability) of the lower legs, but duly equipped with Nike Air in case you find yourself in a sticky situation.
