13 Real-Life Struggles Of A High-Heel Strutter

They say "The higher the heel, the closer to God." But I say, "The higher the heel, the farther you fall when you trip in those heels and bust ass." Stilettos are sexy as hell; they'll give you the illusion of legs for days and can even boost your self-confidence, but the price of beauty…

Hi/Lo: Floral Pumps For Spring

I love how pretty patterned pumps can brighten up an entire outfit. The unexpected burst of color screams "Spring is here!” Though many of the prettiest patterns come with the highest price tags, you can achieve the same effect for a sixth of the price. Try these Guess pumps for $90 at Macy's.

It’s the age old problem every single woman faces throughout her shoe-filled life: the pain and discomfort associated with wearing fabulous heels.

Help! Do Comfortable High Heels Exist?

Last week I was wandering the aisles of Nordstrom Rack and found the cutest pair of blue suede Franco Sarto pumps (shown above).

DIY Louboutins Are A Boon For The Red Paint Industry

A real pair of Christian Louboutin heels will set you back anywhere from $800 to $2000 ("A stupid pair of shoes should never cost the same amount as a fair condition '95 Nissan Maxima!" -- my dad), which means they're not a realistic footwear option for most people. But hey, if the recession and crumbling…

Christian Louboutins Brings A Fairy Tale To Life With His Take On Cinderella

Nobody ever told us who designed Cinderella's glass slipper, but if a contemporary version of the tale were to take place, Christian Louboutin would be a shoe-in for the job — so it's only natural that Disney chose the French designer, known for his luxurious red-soled footwear, to create a modern-day take on the fateful…

A Shoe With Curve Appeal

I've had my eye on these Rachel Comey wooden wedge sandals for a hot minute. I love the subtle curve of the wooden wedge and the unexpected grey suede and leather color combo.

Must Haves: 15 Pairs Of Totally Ridiculous And Fun Platform Sandals

It's my belief that every woman should have at least one pair of totally superfluous-just-for-fun-ridiculously-over-the-top shoes. And if they've got a crazy platform heel on them, even better.

When Louboutins Attack

Money can't buy you class, the great Countess LuAnn once sang, and isn't it true? The manager of Jaspers' Corner Tap & Kitchen in San Fransisco, Matt Medinger, went to the ER recently after he intervened in a streetside drama over Christian Louboutin's red-soled shoes. Medinger said he witnessed a man walk past a woman o…

Walking On Pins And Needles

No, of course these aren't real shoes. They're an art project from Polish artist Erwina Ziomkowska, but we also prefer to think of them as a statement about the pain women endure in order to be beautiful. High heels, so very masochistic! [Vice]…

9 Bizarre & Beastly Pairs Of Designer Shoes

"Creative" and "eccentric" are adjectives that pretty much go hand-in-hand, so it's hardly a surprise when clothing designers get a bit quirky with their creations.
