Quotable: Shauna Sand Explains Her Lucite Shoe Obsession

“I’ve been walking in them for so long. I was a ballerina, so my balance is amazing and I’m used to being on my toes in point shoes. But I also think my stilettos are quite deceiving because they’re so comfortable. I have three daughters, who are almost nine, 10 and 12 and even when my kids were like, two, they were able to walk in the stilettos. They’re really not that high because they have a platform so once you get used to them, they’re so easy to walk in. [Wearing stilettos] is like exercising without exercising. When you wear them, you’re actually working your legs and your butt and you can get beautiful muscle definition … I love them. I can’t walk barefoot. I’ll walk barefoot in the sand on the beach, but if the sand is too hot, I’ll have my stilettos on.”
