I once read a theory that high heel shoes change a woman's posture so that she has to stick out her butt and boobs which allegedly increases signs of sexual attractiveness and availability.

High platform shoes were popular when I was dating in the late 70's /early 80's.My friends and I referred to them as rape victim shoes because you couldn't run away.

Actually I was responding to waking up with lots of energy and completely pooping out by the end of the day.

I am glad you called of the vet last week.

I can't wear those, but at least they are sturdier than those tiny pencil-thin heels!(i have bad feet, have had surgery on both, so no heels for me.)

Those shoes are super cute.

Ha, my friend/co-worker E wore those all the time when we were still business casual. They looked nice and comfy.

Love my Docs and my Uggs. Don't get to wear either of them as frequently as I'd like,*some* people attribute this to me having too many shoes, as if that was possible, but they are both way way way better than heels.

I can wear them to work all day, fresh out of the box when they are brand new. I buy two pair every two years -- black and brown. Great shoes.

My book club is making another feeble attempt at restarting. First book is called "So B. It" by Sarah Weeks. Anybody read it? So far, it's about a girl with a retarded mom and their neighbor who takes care of them.

So far, most of these books just make me feel much better about my own life. I guess that's the point, eh?

THere's a new book out written by the daughter of hoarders and I wish I could remember its title, it looked good. Read about it in Parade magazine yesterday. I'll have to check it out when I get home.

Are these shoes or strappy sandals? i forget which way the vote went... ;-)

if they're shoes, try smushing the top of the toes back to the top of the heel (put a shoe on your hand, toe by your finger tips, and "close" your fingers towards your wrist) and then also try smushing the back of the heel (where your achilles comes out) to the bottom of the shoe (where your heel sits). these moves should loosen the leather (or leather like material); do it a couple times a day until then, and they should loosen just a bit...

but then, if it's the ball of your foot or the balance of the heel that you're working on, time and practice! ;-)

Yep! Couldn't put it down!

Seriously, what's with these gayass books your friends read? I just read Dan Brown's latest "Inferno." I recommend that, instead.
