I mentioned the word personality in connection with shoes above. Personality is a great word to describe most, if not all, of the shoes in the "Killer Heels" exhibit. The inanimate objects of my admiration had so much personality they could rival some people.
Since closed footwear will be the shoes of choice for the next nine months, especially for the professionals whose shoe uniform requires high heels, here are a few tips to help your feet make the shoe transition easier and more comfortable.
Sometimes a man's gotta do something that's out of the ordinary. Sometimes he has to push himself. Sometimes a man's gotta walk into a shoe store and buy a pair of heels.
